Thinking about a 3D art pen for your teenager? The AtmosFlare is a great product with a great price point. The learning curve is good for a teenager with little frustration. This is not a product I would get from someone younger or without much strength in their hands. It’s a ton of fun! We sat down and made simple art within in minutes.
Little Z was interested so we snapped a picture and then moved him away from the light. The light heats up the pen tip allowing the ink to flow from the tip. The kit comes with several extra tips along with two tubes of color red and blue. Insert the batteries and flip it on. Takes a few seconds to heat up and your ready to start creating art.
For the best experience, check out this list of AtmosFlare tips:
- Start squeezing before you turn on the light. This helps to keep the nozzle free from initial buildup.
- Ink your base/attachment point first then turn on the light. Otherwise, the ink may not stick to the surface.
- Shining the pen on a bright surface might cure ink that’s already inside the nozzle. It’s best to draw on a surface that’s not bright white.
- If the nozzle becomes clogged, use the cap to clear the blockage. If the blockage persists, remove the nozzle and clear the blockage with a paperclip.
- Try to store the pen upright while in frequent use so the ink stays in the tip. Otherwise, you will have to shake the pen or squeeze through the air pockets which might distort your line.
- Your battery will last about 4 hours. When it’s time to change your battery, the lighted “M” emblem will alert you by flashing three times.
- You might see moisture vapor near the tip of your pen as you draw. This is a harmless, odorless result of the 3D ink curing as excess moisture evaporates.
Below is some of out creations.
This is my first go at it with the pen. You can see it will take some time to learn how to be as creative as the people in the video on their website. It is definitely a fun tool for a teenager that is extremely creative. What would you create?
