Felt / Porous Tip Markers
I hadn't realized how big the tip was, nor had I
known how wet the ink would be, so there are a few
downsides to this pen. It takes FOREVER to dry,
and I mean, I was blowing on it and waving the
paper around in the air and the ink was still wet
-- you have to be really careful with smearing.
The color is also a lot darker than I'd thought it
would be. But to be honest, I really only bought
this pen because I needed to hit the 25 dollar
mark and my favorite color is pink -- so I suppose
I can't complain too much about it. I do love the
look and feel of it, and I'm certainly going to
find things to use it for, so all-in-all, I don't
regret the purchase.
