#mystery: Can you explain this? I posted this photo to my @calligraphyhowto Instagram account yesterday, and when I last checked, less than 24 hours later, the post had 776 likes and I had gone from 165 to 316 followers.
Here’s the original post:
Squee! New toys!! Kuretake Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens – set of 12. With real (plastic) brush bristles!
Pros: Inexpensive; lots of colors to choose from; smaller brush tip than some other brush pens (like Pentel Colorbrush), which isn’t in itself *better*, but the variety is nice; display/hanger case acts as a nice storage case—the pens sort of snap into place, and stay!
Cons: not refillable ?; some colors perform better than others (for example, the cobalt blue brush feels musher and harder to control than some of the others); unknown light fastness (probably fugitive, so you don’t want to use these on any artwork that you want to display on the wall and expect to last!) Real brushes (with bristles) are much harder to control than felt-tip brush markers. But they allow for all kinds of wonderful effects that brush markers won’t give you.
Plus if you can learn to control a brush, it makes markers feel SO easy! ?
