These are real MARSHins. I can’t believe I waited so long to use my new package of Americolor food writing pens…Santa was nice enough to bring (and I was nice enough to receive!) I’m not the greatest artist on paper so I assume my decorating will take some time with these pens. But they are perfect for making fine detail like mouths on these little alien men. Previously I would use my appetizer picks dipped in coloring and it would take FOREVER to get small lines made and it was never without error. These very cool pens make line making a snap! Next time I’ll add some more embellishments to my creatures…these guys don’t look too spacey!
