Elmer's 3D Washable Paint Pens follow up doodle tests

Since I found some discounted Elmer's 3D Washable Paint Pen sets like the ones my nieces enjoyed during their weekend art camp, I decided to try them myself just for fun. Using the glue pens feels probably like what decorating cakes must feel like, one has to squeeze the pen tubes and adjust the height from the pen tip to the paper to regulate the thickness and direction of the pigmented glue strokes.
The baby peacock was drawn on a sheet of Georgia Pacific card stock which turned out to be a rather weak support for the glue paints after quickly absorbing the moisture and warping under the weight of the thick layer of glue.
Doodling with these sparkling glue 3D pens was a bit smoother on the sturdier Nujabi watercolor paper which did not warp as much as the white card stock sheet. Form past experience, I expect it will take a few days for the glue paints to dry completely and solidify their textured surfaces.
