What Was in the Box?

Karin BrushmarkerPRO

The BrushmarkerPRO use their “liquid ink” technology to maintain the intensity and control of colour until the last drop. They are equipped with a super durable and flexible Japanese nylon tip and contain non-toxic paints with an intense dye based colour. The colours can be mixed directly by contacting the ends of the markers, by using the blender pen or wash out with water to create tonal transitions. Test how far a small amount colour can stretch when you add water.

Caran D’ache Fibralo Fibre Pens

The stroke of this artist quality fibre-tipped colouring pen is transformed on contact with water to create surprising effects. The water-based ink will not bleed through paper and can be washed out of most modern fabrics. The bright, transparent colours will not dry out for days with the cap left off.

Spectrum Noir Aquatint

Each AquaTint pen is filled with bright water-soluble dye-based ink, dispensed through a fine nylon brush. Colour can be applied directly, as accurately or freely as you wish, then blended out with water. You can even just dip the nib in water and use like a regular brush for a very light colour wash, great for moving and blending colours from the other pens.

Artline Drawing System Pen

It has a ribbed grip zone for comfortable, accurate control to deliver the high quality water-resistant pigment ink, perfect for watercolours.
