A pen that produces pigments / Learning Utensils

A pen that produces pigments
A pen that produces pigments

A pen that produces pigments is designed for the rearing of children in the poverty-stricken area because education has always been a severe problem in backward rural area.People of African tribes have the habit of drawing totems on their faces with the most primitive paints.The children living in the backward rural areas have few opportunities to learn painting and lack of tools, but all children like to paint, which is their nature.We found that currently, most of the pigments on the market are derived from the extraction of ore and plants.A pen that produces pigments is actually a simple tool for extracting paint.
