I was given the Atmosflare 3D Drawing Pen complimentary and compensated for this review. All opinions are my own.
A 3D Drawing Pen has been sitting on my desk, staring at me asking me to simply give it a chance and use it, but I was scared. I will admit I didn’t even know 3D pens were a real thing until it made its way into my mailbox and onto this blog…
Given that I can hardly draw a stick figure, I was a bit nervous to use the AtmosFlare 3D Drawing Pen – a new product that you can only pre-order (at this time of publication).
However, I knew if I could draw one item (even if it was a cube) using this 3D pen, I would feel proud.
Perhaps, moving forward I would gain the confidence to create something a little bit more complex like a tiara or actual stick figure. Come to find out I was able to draw a cube on my first try! Yeah, me!
If I can draw a 3D object, then I know you can.

Tricks and Tips to using the AtmosFlare 3D Drawing Pen
(These tips will save you a lot of frustration and help with the learning curve required to use this product. Unless you are an artistic prodigy that can pick skills up quickly… or a stubborn person that hates reading directions. Trust me, you need these tips to be successful at drawing 3D images.)
- Start squeezing before you turn on the light. This helps to keep the nozzle free from initial buildup.
- Ink your base/attachment point first then turn on the light. Otherwise, the ink may not stick to the surface.
- Shining the pen on a bright surface might cure ink that’s already inside the nozzle. It’s best to draw on a surface that’s not bright white.
- If the nozzle becomes clogged, use the cap to clear the blockage. If the blockage persists, remove the nozzle and clear the blockage with a paperclip.
- Try to store the pen upright while in frequent use so the ink stays in the tip. Otherwise, you will have to shake the pen or squeeze through the air pockets which might distort your line.
- Your battery will last about 4 hours. When it’s time to change your battery, the lighted “M” emblem will alert you by flashing three times.
- You might see moisture vapor near the tip of your pen as you draw. This is a harmless, odorless result of the 3D ink curing as excess moisture evaporates.
Let’s be real, I am never going to be able to make something intricate like the Eiffel tower, but there are other 3D projects that I could attempt to create. Projects like a car and pumpkins would be great to draw, but you definitely need to draw with focus and no interruptions. Perhaps, when the kids are napping or in bed.
Speaking of kids, I would not recommend this product for children younger than 8 years old.
