Graphik Line Painters are a fine line paint pen filled with lightfast, permanent, opaque waterbased ink in 20 colours. The 0.5 Japan nib is robust and delivers a fluid paint line. Allow ink to dry for about 30 minutes before they become permanent.
Warning the ink is permanent once dry. If you do get it on your clothing keep the area wet until you can wash it properly (not guaranteed, but it's the best bet!).
This set is the full monty containing all 20 Line Painter colours.
I have been considering these pens for a while now and when I saw that they were on sale I jumped at the chance to grab the set of twenty, I am so glad that I did!
Derwent Graphik Line Painters are paint pens, but they are unlike any other paint pen I have used before. They have very opaque free flowing ink and lovely fine nibs, making it possible to achieve amazing fine details and even write with them. I tested these pens on both white and black paper and I have been very pleased with the results; especially the colours “fox” and “snow” on black paper.
My only complaint thus far is that there are only twenty colours; I hope that Derwent will release more colours in the future.
I work in mixed media and love layering opaque mediums over transparent watercolour so these pens will be perfect for this technique. I would recommend these to anyone working in mixed media and Art Journaling. Emily (Australia) on 11 Dec 2015
I love these pens. Once you've learned to be aware of how the ink is flowing, there are no drawbacks. They build up nicely, one pen can create a blob of ink which, once dry can be drawn on, giving the possibility both of correcting work and building up actual depth. For zentanglers, I'd say the nibs are on the thick side, but for larger zentangle inspired art they're fine. Love them. Gail Seery (Grantham, United Kingdom) on 4 Mar 2015
These are fantastic paint pens. Incredibly rich colours easy flow paint makes them a joy to use Win Hornby (Westhill, United Kingdom) on 3 May 2015
