It's a very nice brush...
, July 2, 2014
It's a very nice brush pen, but I didn't find its "watercolor" properties to be
all that present or outstanding. There are other fountain pen inks available
that are more water soluble than the ink in this brush pen. But that might just
be due to it being black. For getting interesting gradient effects, I felt like
I had to put a lot of effort and use a great deal of water to do so. Otherwise,
the ink remained quite dark. For all the effort, I think just using a regular
sumi ink or watercolor paint would be a better use of my time.
Still, this is a nice disposable brush pen, with a great range of line-widths.
When the ink dries, it's very opaque, and I would say it's darn near waterproof.
While not functioning quite the way I wanted it to based on the description, I
would still keep this with my watercolor kit for adding detail. If this were
refillable and at the same price, I'd give it five stars.
