What was in the box?

Artline Stix Brush Pen

A soft brush tip water based pen that has gained a lot of respect recently with the hand lettering community, so we thought we would check it out. Not only can this pen make thick or thin brush strokes and create a gradient/ombré effect. They can also be clipped together using the special connectors on the barrel, so no need for a pencil case. Clip and go.

Artline Stix Colouring Marker

Another pen from the Stix range that can be clipped to the brush version using those special connectors. This version has a sturdier bullet nib for a more consistent line width. Try using this grey marker to add depth to your hand lettering with a drop shadow.

Ecoline Brush Pen

These brush pens contain the very special and super vibrant watercolour inks from Ecoline. The brush nib is an amazing tool for small delicate work and large broad strokes. Although no water is needed, you can add it if you want to create washes of the pigment.

Edding 1200 Metallic Colourpen

Add a little extra shimmer and shine to your work with these fibre tipped metallic pens from Edding. The bullet nib, although not as flexible as the brush nibs, does give a gentle line variance for a subtle lettering effect. They work great on dark paper too.

Crayola Broad Tip Marker

You might remember these from your childhood, but they are not just great for youngsters to get into art, hand lettering artists are finding the broad durable nibs are perfect to write with too. The tip of the nib creates thin controlled lines, while if you tilt it slightly the edge of the nib provides a broad stroke.
