Vanishing Trick – Erase Colours with Marvin’s Magic Pens
If you colour in with the white tipped pens then you can use the white pens to erase the images by going over it. Amaze friends, correct mistakes or create a reverse image. Our son used this technique to stop him from going over the lines by drawing around his picture with the white pen before colouring it in.
Leaving it White
You may want to leave parts of your colouring white – so the erasing method is good for this too. Helpful if you want to create a 3D effect.
You can of course then colour over the white with the dual-colour pens to create another colour on top.
Changing Pen Colour and Secret Messages
If you use the dual colour pens you can change the colour on the paper to a new colour! Simply draw over the image with a white pen and it will change to the colour at the tip.
Then if you use the pens with white at the end you can amazing people with the fact that it just disappears when you colour over the image!
Revealing Images and Messages
Or create a secret message or image by first drawing it with the white pen. Then when you colour over it then it will appear (either as by remaining white or by being a different colour depending on which type of pen you used).
Be aware that you are actually better to use the secret method by drawing the word or image in white first. It is better this way because otherwise the colour will stick to the white pen more. But at least there is more than one in the pack.
What drawings will your children create and what hidden message will they write?
