BrushMarkers are the ideal tool for illustration, manga, graphics, animation and fashion design. The distinctive brush tip is inspired by the flexible qualities of a traditional paintbrush, making it fantastically versatile and malleable to provide the ultimate in precise line control. Twin-tipped, the BrushMarker allows you to create fluid strokes, varied line widths and the ability to fill in block colour.
Available in a spectrum of 72 colours, the BrushMarker offers an expansive range of shades from light pastels to bold tones. Each colour is blend-friendly and the translucent ink is non-toxic and alcohol-based, allowing it to be built up in successive layers. The high quality nibs provide print-quality, streak-free coverage that will not fleck, ensuring your work remains professional.
The brush tip differs from a traditional paint brush tip as it is comprised of one solid piece rather than lots of individual hairs. This is great as it means you won't be suffering any split ends and you won't have to clean the tip between use! Although slightly stiffer than a traditional brush, the brush tip still provides excellent flexibility for creating a whole range of different marks. The solid nature of the tip means that ink flow is predictable and consistent compared to a brush where colour and water are released more unpredictably from the belly. Overall the Brushmarker combines some of the best qualities of a brush with the ease and precision of a marker pen.
Each BrushMarker is dual nibbed, with a precise brush tip to one end and a chisel nib to the opposite end. This tip combination makes it quick and easy to add in fluid strokes or quickly fill in large areas of colour. Combine these with the bullet tip of the ProMarker and you have a complete set of mark making tools at your disposal! It is important that both caps are kept securely on the pen at all times. If you accidentally leave the marker uncapped for a short period of time (at maximum a couple of hours), replace the cap as soon as possible and allow time for the marker to 'recharge'. Unfortunately, if the pen has been left for more than a couple of hours it may have to be replaced with a new marker.
BrushMarkers work seamlessly with the ProMarker as they contain the same ink formulation. We would also recommend using specially coated marker paper, such as the Winsor & Newton Bleedproof Marker Pad. Bleedproof paper is specially coated to lift ink away from the page, making it easier to work with inks and preventing the ink from bleeding through the pages. If you need to work on softer papers for sketches, etc., try placing a sheet of greaseproof paper behind the sheet you're working on. If you prefer a more heavy weight paper, Bristol Board also works very well with ProMarkers and BrushMarkers.
