How To: New Neon

Here at Cass Art we have released some dazzling new neon products, so you can Sketch Your Summer in luminescent style. 

We're all colour lovers here and it was about time we spiced our palette up a notch with some fluorescent tones. So don your sunglasses, welcome these new dazzlers to your toolkit and read on for a handy How To feature to help you get started. 

Neon Faber-Castell PITT Artist Brush Pen Set 

Faber-Castell Neon artist Pitt Pens

Made with pigmented India ink, these pigment liners are waterproof and permanent, just like their monochromatic Pitt Pen brothers

They come in a set of 6, equipping you with neon yellow, red, blue, orange, green and pink.

Extremely lightfast, they are durable and come with a flexible brush-like nib, which allows you to vary between nimble details and large, sweeping strokes.

Use them for spontaneous sketching this summer, or to pen some more technical drawings. They are the first choice for many graphic designers, illustrators and architects - just remember to replace the lids so they don't dry out.  

Daler-Rowney FW Ink Neon Set 

FW Neon Inks - 6 bottles of acrylic colour

Another excellent addition to the FW Inks, the Neon set comes with 6 29.5ml bottles of acrylic-based ink. 

Use these bold colours as they are with paintbrushes or pens, or dilute them with water to achieve a lighter wash or colour. 

Once dry, the FW inks are lightfast and permanent, as well as water-resistant, but make sure you let them dry completely before you work over the top of them to avoid smudging.

You can bring a bright, neon edge to your acrylic paintings and mix them with normal acrylic colour to achieve different effects. It's colour in a bottle - and the most vivid bottled colour yet!

They come in Fluorescent Yellow, Fluorescent Orange, Fluorescent Red, Fluorescent Pink, Fluorescent Blue and Fluorescent Green.
 

Set of 4 Neon Sharpie Fine Permanent Markers

Sharpie Permanent Markers in Neon colours


Just like the old classic sharpie markers, these neon beauties are permanent, colourful and versatile.

They can be used on a variety of surfaces, not just paper; draw with them on cardboard, photographs, wood, metal, foil, stone, plastic and leather (though stay away from your mum's new leather 3 piece suite...)

Neon Sharpies in 4 colours

Use them as an additional drawing tool to make eye-catching artworks, or keep them handy in your pencil case to make labels, signs and notes.  

Available in a set of 4 neon colours, green, yellow, orange and pink, the colours are vivid in normal daylight and then fluorescent when placed under UV light. They're a must-have for making summer party signs.
