Use this rechargeable automatic pen to create beautiful, intricate, permanent stippling effects in your drawings — without the wrist strain!
An amazing tool for professional artists, the Cuttlelola Electric Dotspen helps even beginning artists master professional stippling and drawing skills more quickly. Use it on a variety of papers for decorative drawing, comics, manga, pen-and-ink drawings, pointillism, stippling, zentangle — even doodling. Push-button operation engages the nib and adjusts the speed to control the direction and spacing of dots, and also achieve contrast of light and shade (slower speed for light shading, faster for darker shaded areas).
Equipped with a rechargeable lithium battery that powers a magnetic coil-driven mechanism, the Cuttlelola Electric Dotspen can be plugged into a laptop or PC using the included USB charger — or you can work unplugged for about an hour, then recharge!
The set includes the Cuttlelola Electric Dotspen, a USB charging cable, five ink refills, an anti-magnetic box, and operating instructions.

Comments about Cuttlelola Electric Dotspen:
So, they ignore my emails, facebook messages, and disputes but send me an email to review the product. It came broken and is unusable. It has been over a week since I contacted you and multiple days since I opened the dispute. So, my review is that the pen may be nice if it worked but the company who sold it is completely worthless.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Worth it if it works after 4 months.
The pen came in a really nice tin containing the pen, instructions, charging cable and 5 refills. The pen worked great out of the box for about 20 minutes, but would not charge or work while plugged in no matter what power source or cable I tried. The light that lets you know it's charging wouldn't even come on. The motor and circuit board seem to be glued in so you can't reach them without braking the pen. You can't even use it as a regular ball point pen without the motor running. Other vendor's poor customer reviews of this product say it works anywhere from 1 day to 4 months before it stops charging. I would wait for Cuttlelola to make a new and improved model before paying $52+ or wait for someone else to make this type of pen.

I am enjoying experimenting with this product. I had ordered extra cartridges in black and colors. It does it's job well. Most often when the battery runs low, I just take a break, charge the pen, then work with it later. It does not take long for the battery to charge. Changing colors or cartridges is very simple. I love it's portability and ease of use. The pen is about 1 1/2 times the thickness of a fine tip sharpie. One thing I noticed was that it works best, for me, when I use solid cardboard - like that of the back of an art pad- and put it on a solid flat surface, then taping my bristol board onto the cardboard.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

not really waterproof ink
Like the pen, but it smears even after dried for days. Water resistant maybe. Waterproof, which it claims, definitely not.
I can't say enough about how much I love this pen.
from Lusby, MD
I was undecided at first about purchasing this pen. I'm glad I finally convinced myself to buy it. It is fabulous for shading. It is smooth and easy to use. It really saves you from stressing your wrist.

great drawing tool
Makes stippling much easier and much faster
What an amazing tool!
By Rats Nest Studios: Earth aka Tony C.

The usual problem I have with my "pen & ink " work is the countless hours that I've spent doing stippling, now it's not that I don't like doing it, but as I've gotten older it is sometimes difficult to find the time for the countless hours required to achieve the effect I am looking for. Not to mention the work required to keep my rapidiographs clean and in working order, etc etc. Then while browsing my favorite art catalog: Dick Blick I happen to see a write up for the Cuttlelola pen. So I took a chance and, Wow! am I amazed at just how quickly I am now able to complete my stippling work, what used to take me several hours to several days of weeks I am now accomplishing in only a few hours. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite tools in my "magic bag of tricks". Yes it is a bit pricey, but I think well worth the investment when I think about just how many projects I can finish and then move on to new creations!

A fun and exciting pen to use
from S CA
I don't know of any other brand of this type of pen. It takes some to get used to it. The first one i received, didn't turn off, i sent it back and this company had one in my hands in time for my Sat. Class. Cudoes to them.I thought u held the pen over the paper, at least an inch and it spotted the paper, nope. U hold it almost touching the paper and draw from there. So, it's really only practice for smaller work, many 8 x 10" at the most. The resulting drawings turn out quite good, i have since bought 2 others for family and friends.

CuttleLola - great design!
from Boston MA
This was an experiment - I was curious about this new artist tool, so I bought one. I am amazed at it - really! Its easy to use and it brings about a whole new dimension in shading and drawing that I now realize is is great and creative way to approach highlighting areas in my artwork. I do wish it was easier to buy the refills though - they are reasonable priced BUT the shipping costs are excessive. Hopefully Blick will offer them soon and that dilemma will be solved.Give this a try - you might be happily surprised like I was.

You really can't compare this because there is nothing that I know of to compare it with. I do a lot of stippling so I am pretty fast but this tool could be faster. I don't know how long the ink cartridges last but that could be a minus along with the fact that you have to charge it every half hour. You can use it plugged in but I find that awkward
