This pen is really delicate....

This pen is really delicate. I have mashed the brushes by putting the cap on
wrong, be careful! A lovely pen, very slim body, I don't know what the deal is
w/ make-up tool nonsense. I'm not drawing on my face. But it looks really sexy
and draws really sexy. Sexiness aside, this pen is too delicate for me, too
soft, too thin. It doesn't feel like a real brush. I need something hardier. I
don't reach for this one as often as I thought I would.

This review is from Akashiya Sai ThinLine Watercolor Brush Pen - 5 Color Set
This is a great addition to the Akashiya line. If you already like their other
pens, then you will enjoy these. They write with a finer line, and has a lovely
muted colour palette. In an interview with an Akashiya representative, he
mentioned they designed these pens to appeal to females, and decided with a thin
body to resemble makeup tools. I thought that was interesting.
I have noticed that the Akashiya pens tend to work better on watercolour papers
with Alpha cellulose content like Canson Montval and Strathmore 400 Watercolour
paper. The lines are easily washed over and re-soluble on papers like these.
Otherwise, working with them by dissolving some colour on a palette is an easy
way to gain more control over the medium. For line drawing, they are very nice
when utilized on sumi-e papers, and papers with a bot more tooth to them.
Overall I really enjoy experimenting with these pens, and I think they are a
very unique product.
