“And here we are in the murky depths of the office supply store, in search of the elusive dry highlighting pencil… its fluorescent colors are magnificent, yet so difficult to capture…..”
I would really like to add some sort of functional highlighter to my world. Fountain pen inks (and some gel ink pens) don’t play well will liquid highlighters so I’ve been looking for a decent yet inexpensive “Dry” highlighter that doesn’t obscure the writing and or text like this one. Guided by a search through the Pencil Talk blog, I decided to try some of the Lyra Fluorescent highlighting pencils available over at Pencil Things- though they only have 1 or two colors left in stock. (If they suit my needs, I really don’t care about the color.) I had ended up on the Pencil Things site after seeking out the highly coveted Palomino Pencils you suggested to me in my recent post about my lack of pencil love – so yes, I bought some of those as well. I’ll be sure to let you know how it all works out.
