AtmosFlare™3D Drawing Pen Review #Sponsored – The 4-Crow's

‘Tis the two weeks of Christmas Break and boredom has officially set in- and we shave less than a week to go until school is back in session. What will I do with the 5 days remaining to keep my sanity in tact besides eat? What will these kids of mine do besides eat, play video games, watch TV, and drive me insane?

Thanks to AtmosFlare 3D DRAWING PEN1 by RedwoodVentures LTD, LLC., who is paying us to test out their latest product before it hits the shelves in January, I can add another activity to our break. Yippee!! Take a look at the flower pot that Miss K made using the AtmosFlare 3D DRAWING PEN. You may recall last month, I was paid to play with their I DO 3D product. See our review of it here2. Honestly, we like the AtomoFlare 3D Pen, so much better. It’s more precise and cures while being used versus drawing and then curing. And, being able to draw and sculpt in mid-air is amazing!! Take a look at the following video.

Since we are in testing mode, our pen came in a brown box with the following items:
Pen (1)
Ink Cartridges (2, blue and red)
Ink Tips (4)
Cap (1)

Miss K loves making craft videos-I think she is contemplating becoming a YouTube sensation, so I let her make one of the AtmosFlare 3D Drawing Pen for this post, keep in mind she and I are still not experts on 3D pen art, but we are having fun trying and learning.

AtmosFlare Pro Tips:

  • Start squeezing before you turn on the light. It 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 or simply pull right off.
  • Shining the pen on a bright surface will cure what is already inside the nozzle. The reflection of the light cures the inside of the nozzle and can block it.
  • When the nozzle is clogged, remove the nozzle then clean/clear the nozzle with a paperclip. If you leave the nozzle attached to the resin bladder when cleaning the obstruction will just get squeezed back in to the nozzle.
  • Try to store the pen upright while in frequent use so the ink stays a 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.


  1. Avoid looking directly at the spotlight, and don’t point the spotlight at your eyes or the eyes of anyone else.
  2. Place cap on drawing tip after use. AtmosFlare works best if used and stored at room temperature, (between 60 and 80 degrees fahrenheit, 15 to 27 degrees celsius.)
  3. For the best results, draw directly on the supplied plastic sheet and accessory shapes. This keeps your drawing surface clean and neat. (We were not supplied these sheets, but instead improvised with parchment paper and our supplies from the IDO3D review)
  4. Wash hands well with soap and water after use.
  5. Do not place ink in mouth or ingest. In case any ink enters your eyes, wash with plenty amount of water. If you experience any unexpected allergic reaction, consult a doctor.
  6. Product performs best if used within 12 months after manufacturing (manufacture date is printed on pen).
  7. Our system does not use heat to assist in the curing process, but heat is generated for about 5 seconds during the curing process. Do not apply ink to skin under direct light or sunlight as it may cause skin irritation or burns. If ink is applied to skin, wash thoroughly with soap and water.
  8. Adult supervision is required. Observe children closely and intervene as necessary to prevent potential safety problems and ensure appropriate use of 3D ink.
  9. Keep pen/ink away from pets.
  10. Results vary depending on level of skill.
  11. For information regarding allergic concerns, please call our Customer Service 1(855) 876-8124


  • If material cured in pen tip. Remove pen tip and unclog the cured material.
  • Replace new battery when curing time is up to 1 minutes.

To Clean

  • Wash with soap and warm water.
  • Use an alcohol based hand sanitizer to help remove sticky residue from hands.

Be sure to follow AtmosFlare at the following links and be one of the first to own this amazing 3D drawing pen. I will say, be sure to save ALL pieces to this pen. We made the mistake of throwing away the original tops to the ink- big mistake. If the ink inside the tip wasn’t hardened, it kind of poured out a little.

Baoer 507 fountain pen review

It’s hard to believe I bought the Baoer 507 fountain pen over a year ago. It’s been sitting ever since, patiently waiting its turn to be reviewed. Here it is, finally. I’ve been wanting to try it the moment I laid hands on its substantial heft, but kept delaying it.

What is the Baoer 507?

The Baoer 507 is a fountain pen made by the Chinese Baoer company. If you’re wondering how to pronounce “Baoer”, you’re not the only one. Is it bauer? Bower? Maybe someone can clear this up for me.
Either way, Baoer is one of those Chinese brands (apart from Jinhao1) which I’d heard of before. So one evening, while fishing for fountain pen deals on eBay, I came across this magnificent specimen featuring a copper embossed barrel. I placed a bid for £2.50 and promptly forgot about it. When the auction ended, I found myself with a £2.50 pen, including shipping. Delivery from China took a while, but I wasn’t in any hurry.

Was the Baoer 507 worth my £2.50? You’ll find out soon enough but I can tell you this much: it’s some of the best £2.50 I’ve spent.


As with the Jinhao 5992 before it, I don’t remember if it came in a (cardboard) box or not. If it did, I must have thrown it away. For £2.50 I don’t have any expectations as far as packaging.

Body, construction, and dimensions

The Baoer 507’s main feature is its actual copper barrel, embossed with horses, Chinese characters, and other flourishes. It’s obviously garish but also very Chinese. Not everyone’s cup of tea, I’m sure. I wanted it when I saw it, for the novelty factor.

Apart from that, there’s a piano-black plastic cap with golden band, finial and clip, as well as a butt-end from the same plastic material. Here are the Baoer 507’s dimensions:
Length capped: 135 mm / 5.4 in
Length uncapped: 122 mm / 4.8 in
Length posted: 165 mm / 6.5 in
Cap length: 57 mm / 2.25 in

Here are the weights for the Baoer 507, compared to other fountain pens I’ve tested:
Baoer 507 (with cap) – 34.6 g – 1.22 oz
Baoer 507 (without cap) – 21.7 g – 0.76 oz
Jinhao 5993 (with cap) – 17.8g – 0.63oz
Jinhao 5994 (without cap) – 10.5g – 0.37oz
Pilot Vanishing Point5 (with cartridge and blind cap) – 30.5g – 1.08oz
TWSBI 5306 (no ink) – 25.7g – 0.91oz
Lamy AL-Star7 (with converter) – 21.8g – 0.77oz
Noodler’s Ahab8 (no ink) – 18.8g – 0.66oz
Pilot Prera9 (with converter) – 16.1g – 0.56oz

Right off the bat you’ll notice 2 things: its dimensions are very similar to the Jinhao 59910 (an all-plastic pen) at double the weight. Its weight, in fact, is even greater than the Pilot Vanishing Point11. This makes the Baoer 507 a very hefty pen indeed. In terms of construction, the Baoer 507 seems to be pretty well built. There are no seams or rough edges, and everything is put together nicely. The piano-black finish is slick, while the golden trim doesn’t look cheap, although it is a little more than I like.

The main attraction is the copper embossed body and I think it matches the piano-black cap and end piece rather well, though I’m not so sure about the gold accents around the cap. The barrel isn’t exactly naked copper, instead seems to be covered in a thin layer of lacquer or some such.
The cap features a gold metal band at either end, as well as a gold finial and a gold clip resembling those found on Pelikan pens. The gold band near the finial has “BAOER” inscribed.
The cap is a snap-on affair and I’m particularly impressed by how securely and authoritatively it snaps shut. This cap won’t come off accidentally. The downside is that it’s hard for me to pop the cap off with one hand by holding the barrel in the hand and pushing with my thumb against the bottom of the clip. The reason is that the clip ends in a sharp point that will pierce the skin of my thumb before the cap breaks contact.

Speaking of the clip, it is rather stiff, with some pretty strong tension in it. While it is very secure clipped to a shirt pocket, it’s not easy to clip it using one hand. Due to that tension, and how the clip makes contact with the cap (via a tiny metal ball), you will need to spread it apart using your other hand. Well, at least it won’t come off easily. How about posting the cap? Some pens work well posted, while others are better unposted. The Baoer 507 feels very well balanced in my hand, without posting the cap.

Due to the heavy weight of the pen itself, I found that posting the cap disturbs the balance and makes it top-heavy, so that doesn’t work for me.
If you are still determined to post the cap, you’ll be happy to know that it posts very securely on the end. The butt seems to be very well designed with this intent, and while the cap is secured via friction, it’s a tight but smooth fit.

The Baoer 507 comes with an international piston converter. I will use this opportunity to once again express my displeasure with higher-regarded brands who refuse to include converters with their significantly more expensive pens.

One last thing I’d like to direct your attention to in the picture above is the metal threads of the section. Yeah, this thing is sturdy.

The nib

My Baoer 507 has a medium/fine nib, and it’s quite pretty in two-tone iridium-gold. I’m not sure I fancy the font they used to inscribe “BAOER”, though. There’s no nib thickness designation. Also, I’m fairly sure the nib isn’t real gold. Just saying.
The section is black plastic with lengthwise grooves. While this marginally improves the grip, I think I would have preferred a glossy section. The section ends in a necked down gold ring/fitting.

Unfortunately I didn’t think to take pictures of the feed, and it’s pretty late at this point in the review, but you’re not missing much. The feed is a standard finned plastic affair, nothing to get excited about. It does its job well enough.

But does it write?

I’m happy to say that I hit the jackpot with the Baoer 507. The nib is a hard nail, without any flex, but it writes very well and very smoothly.
While the nib isn’t marked, it feels to me like an Asian medium or a European fine/extra fine.

I loaded the Baoer 507’s converter with Noodler’s Heart of Darkness12 (my go-to ink for testing fountain pens) and it doesn’t skip one bit. The pen and the ink are a very good match. Once, I left the 507 unused for 5 days and it wouldn’t start again. Priming it by twisting the piston and soaking the feed with some ink got it started again and it wrote without skipping a beat ever since. It looks like with regular use (daily or every other day) it won’t dry out, which is pretty good, on par with pens 1-2 orders of magnitude more expensive. This tells me that the cap has a pretty decent seal.

Bottom line is that the Baoer 507 writes a lot better than both the Jinhao X75013 and the Jinhao 59914 I tested previously, and almost as well as the Pilot Metropolitan15. Now obviously, it’s all in the luck of the draw. The problem with cheap pens is that quality control is hit-and-miss. So you might get lucky and score a sweet-writing nib, or less lucky with an atrocious nib, as was the case with the Jinhao X750. But for £2.50 it’s worth the gamble.

Final words

I am pleasantly surprised by the Baoer 507. I bought it for the novelty factor of the copper embossed barrel, never expecting it to perform worth a damn. Well, it obviously exceeded my very low expectations, and then some! You just can’t get a real fountain pen (with a metal body, tight construction, piston converter, and decent nib) for much lower than £2.50.
I highly recommend trying one, if the style appeals to you. You could try to snag one on eBay for close to nothing but with a long delivery time, or you could do me a small kindness and buy one from my Amazon affiliate link16 (I get a tiny commission of the sale with no cost to you) at a higher cost and potentially faster delivery, though it might still arrive from China.
Below is the full, unobscured writing sample for your perusal.
