I've had this pen for...
, April 24, 2012
I've had this pen for about a week so far and absolutely love the pen. I've been
using the standard Winsor & Newton Series 7 brushes, but they are becoming hard
to find without ordering, and the constant dipping was getting old (not to
mention the few times I turn to dip, I knock the bottle of indian ink over)
So I thought I would try a brush pen to avoid spillage but still get the same
brush feel, and it was probably the best decision I've made so far.
Ink that is supplied isn't waterproof and I found that when dried, it has a dark
brown tint rather than flat black. So I ordered a few cartridges of Carbon Black
and a bottle of it.
Is it truly confirmed that the No. 40 replacement tip will fit on the No. 13? If
so, I would like to convert it over to the natural sable. I found that the nylon
brush tip is a bit slow on flow when taking fast strokes, and maybe a natural
hair tip would fix it.
May be getting a second to use exclusively with the Platinum Converter for
colored inks/washes, or just for non-waterproof cartridges for sketching.
