Karin Brushmarker PRO pens have a fine brush tip and are filled with vibrant, water-based ink that is superb for calligraphy, colouring, illustration or for creating watercolour like effects. They are available in 60 vibrant colours, which are all fully intermixable. These pens are comfortable to hold and are made using durable nylon fibres that give them their flexible tip. The fibres are wonderfully responsive, allowing you to lay down colour in smooth strokes - this is particularly useful for hand lettering!
Solid colour can be added by applying the markers directly to paper and there are a few methods that can be used to blend colours together. Touch the tips of two markers and you will be able to temporarily apply two-toned colour - this is a great technique for calligraphy! Colour can also be manipulated with a slightly wetted brush allowing you to blend colours or create watercolour-like washes. Apply the pen nib directly to a palette or other non-absorbent surface to make puddles of colour that can then be lifted with a brush or marker pen and applied to your painting surface. A blender pen is also included in the colour range which can be used to blend colours with ease.
Each pen holds 2.4ml of non-toxic paint. As these pens are dye based, the ink will fade if exposed to prolonged, direct exposure to sunlight. When not in use pens should be stored vertically, tip facing upwards with caps firmly in place.
These pens don't fray on texture paper, the colours are true and bold. I love them. Only slight negative is that the brush became very slightly floppy after several uses making it difficult to pull off small writing. Helen Nicholson (Beccles, United Kingdom) on 13 Aug 2019
