How To: New Graphik Pens
Winter is upon us, shorter days, cosier nights and with it a sense of infinite possibility...so to coincide with our Make Xmas campaign, we wanted to bring you brand new art materials from leading art brand Derwent: the Graphik Line Makers and Line Painters. They're colourful, they're handily presented in a stylish pouch, and they're the perfect addition to your drawing kit.
We've written a few top tips so you'll be sketching with them in no time this winter.
Derwent Graphik Line Makers
Alongside the Line Painters, a classic range of Line Makers have been released, and are a stylish and high quality fine liner. They aren't watersoluble, but offer smooth, free-flowing line work, with quick-drying ink to prevent smudging.
Perfect for graphic art, illustration, drawing and writing and available in a range of black, brown and grey, there's a pen to suit everyone. They're lightfast and solvent free, and come with a range of different sized nibs.
The pure opaque ink perfectly complements the flexible nature of the waterbased pensadd microscopic details in a 0.05 Line Maker on top of your colourful designs made by the Line Painters once dry.
They are available in a range of 4 sets, both online and in-store.
Derwent Graphik Line Painters
These unique Line Painters function just like a pigment liner, but with the added luxury of being watersoluble. Your intricate designs and details can be achieved alongside a wash of the same colour, bringing about different depths of field with blending and bleeding, in a vast range of colours -pinks, purples, blues and greens, orange, red and a rather attractive mint green, as well as a monochrome range.
With 0.5 nib sizing you can achieve both elaborate details and cover a large amount of paper by simply using a brush (we recommend our range of Cass Art synthetic brushes).
Most importantly - there's nothing out there like it, so the innovative Derwent Graphik Line Painters are worth picking up just to try them out.
They are available in a range of 5 sets, online and in-store.
