Tombow makes a number of these sets of 9 colors, each with a different color palette and each with a colorless blender pen. The pens feature a flexible brush tip and fine tip in one marker. The brush tip works like a paintbrush to create fine, medium or bold strokes; the fine tip on the other end gives consistent lines.
Dual Brush Pens are ideal for artists and crafters. The water-based ink is blendable and the resilient nylon brush retains its point stroke after stroke.
Pigma Micron was the very first disposable technical pen ever invented. When accuracy, minute details, and preservation count, the unparalleled archival quality of Pigma Micron pens makes them everyone's first choice. Artist, writers, and illustrators reach for Pigma Micron and know their work is safeguarded with the permanence of Pigma ink.
I just love these notebooks for practicing my lettering! The pages won't bleed or feather, and you can use the notebook with the spiral on either side or the top. The pages are extra white, ultra smooth French-milled 80g paper. Acid free, pH neutral. This is great for any of the pens on this page. The pages of famous Rhodia paper are also micro-perforated for easy and clean removal.
These brush pens from Pentel are awesome! Their rich, saturated colors are fully blendable with water and can blend easily with other Sign Pen Brush colors. The tips can also be diluted with water to get a full range of values. The tips are flexible, wear-resistant, and pressure-sensitive. They won't dry out even if you leave them uncapped, and you can clean them with a paper towel. And they're ACMI Certified Nontoxic. The standard 12-pack includes black, red, blue, green, brown, orange, yellow, gray, pink, sky blue, violet, and yellow ochre.
