A brush pen is a unique drawing tool that combines the functions of a brush and a marker. With brush pens, you can control the thickness of the line, which is convenient for creating original sketches and is crucial in calligraphy. With a brush pen, you will truly enjoy drawing! CraftOnline has a wide selection of both classic black and brightly coloured brush pens. In our store you can buy brush pens individually or in packs of up to 108 pieces.
What are the best brush pens to buy?
A brush pen is a marker with a nib resembling a classic brush. The nib can be made from different materials, which affects the properties of the pen. Synthetic or natural bristle brush pens have most of the same characteristics as traditional brushes. They are flexible, with a wide range of strokes, but to draw with bristle brush pens, you need a certain skill, so they are not recommended for beginners.
The marker brush pen has a solid, wedge-shaped nib. It can be of different lengths, diameters and hardness. Brush pens of this type are great for beginners because they are much easier to write with.
It is important to note that brush pens come in two types of ink: water-proof ink and water-soluble paint. The first type of pen is good for making persistent marks on wet paper, while watercolour brush pens will help you achieve the unique effect of watercolour paints.
Also, brush pens differ in terms of nib flexibility: hard, medium and soft. Harder brushes are more obedient and fit for drawing fine lines. Softer brushes allow for greater ranges of stroke thickness and more freedom of expression on paper.
Choose a brush size depending on the effect you want to get in your drawing. A thin brush pen is great for sketching, detailed drawings and lettering. The wide one is good for classic calligraphy and for creating shadows in the drawing.
The CraftOnline catalogue also contains both disposable and reusable brush pens, in which you can change cartridges.
