This month's selection of art supplies include Pilot FriXion Light Soft Erasable Highlighters, a Pilot Frixion Ball Medium, a Pentel Paint Marker Extra fine Point, a Sharpie Ultra Fine Permanent Marker, a Sharpie Fine Permanent Marker and Norfolk Cartridge Paper.  Using Ann Pellegrino's art as inspiration, explore the contrast between permanent and erasable inks and soft pastel tones with harsh dark liners.


What Was in the Box?

Pilot FriXion Light Soft Erasable Highlighter

Pilot may have labelled these as highlighters but they are much more. The colours in the set are a subtle pastel shade, not as harsh as standard highlighters. Plus the Frixion erasable ink technology makes for some interesting art applications. The ink stays wetter for longer on the page so you can even create erasable gradients. Layering the translucent ink to get darker shades also works. ScrawlrTip: Use the Frixion Ball for your sketches as they don’t play well with pencil.

Pilot Frixion Ball Medium

The original erasable pen from Pilot allows you to easily draw, erase and draw again with the same pen. Use the special eraser tip to make the ink disappear like magic! The unique gel ink responds to the heat generated by the friction, and lets you draw over it again instantly. The 0.7mm tip gives a 0.35mm medium line great for loosely sketching out your work.

Pentel Paint Marker Extra fine Point

The valve-controlled tip of the extra-fine Pentel Paint Marker provides the ability to add small metallic details and highlights to your work. The aluminium barrel contains the opaque silver ink which is also permanent once dry.

Sharpie Ultra Fine Permanent Marker

The Ultra-fine version of the iconic Sharpie mentioned previously. The Ultra-Fine Point contains the same quick-drying water-resistant ink and sturdy barrel as its big brother, but with it you can achieve greater level of detail using the smaller nib. ScrawlrTip: Do your line work before colouring, as this will smudge slightly when erasing if on-top of the Frixion ink.

Sharpie Fine Permanent Marker

The original and iconic permanent marker. The Sharpie Fine Point contains quick-drying water-resistant ink that permanently marks most surfaces. The resilient tip resists abrasion and the tough polypropylene barrel stands up to almost anything.

Norfolk Cartridge Paper 210gsm

A classic cartridge paper suitable for most drawing techniques and the study weight means it can withstand heavy erasing. Its Acid free, woodfree, and has a white matt surface.
