KOKUYO's PASTA series is a water-soluble, solid gel painting material that colors like pastel. Lightweight and refillable, we like to think of them as square crayons.
They are great for using with pens that are not waterproof (like many fountain pen inks), or for thin paper where you can’t risk the ink bleeding through. They glide across paper super smooth and with precision, thanks to its rectangular shape.
Their vivid colors have a sense of transparency, making them popular highlighters. We find the tactile feedback of gliding them across the page satisfying, and enjoy the look of a rich, almost rustic sensibility, thanks to the texture of the material itself.
Sold individually. Refills include 2 cores per pack.
On Changing Refills: Don't try to insert new refills by pulling the bottom off! DO twist the bottom until the old refill is completely extended from the top. Then, carefully pluck the old refill out, and click the new refill in its place. Now twist the bottom in reverse until the new refill is comfortably inside the PASTA housing.
