Q&A (5)
Q What are the differences between the nibs?
A

Felt tip pen nibs come in many different shapes and sizes. The most commonly used is the bullet nib. The roundness of the nib means the stroke will be the same at all times regardless of the angle the pen is held. A brush nib provides brushed strokes of colour not unfamiliar to the effect of using a paint brush and allows for versatility in the kind of marks you can create. Similarly, the chisel nib can be used for a variety of different strokes. Its flat end can be used for curved, thick or thin lines and is particularly good for blocking large areas with colour.

Q Are these pens waterproof?
A

Yes, these are waterproof and will not bleed if used with water.

Q What are these pens used for?
A

Choosing one pen over another will depend on various factors such as the type of mark, surface, scale, type of ink and style of working. The fine liners in this set are perfect for illustration and detailed drawings, the smallest size nib measuring just 0.05mm. They offer intense colour and brilliant lightfastness. The felt tip pens in this set could also be used for sketching and writing, as well as broad applications of colour and covering large areas.

Q are they refillable?
A

The Pitt pens are not refillable but we do sell them individually online.

 

 

Q Do they dry out if left unused for a while, if so, how long?
A

If you make sure the caps are on tightly these pens shouldn't dry out.

28th November 2016 Reviewed by M Choudhry Totally love these! The black ink is so black. Each individual tip is amazing. It's just so easy to use, the pens glide in my hands. It wasn't at all what I was expecting. I use some to do fine art, to add detailing or the brush pens to do calligraphy. I would recommend this product and want to get the set in Sepia too.
