FW Mixed Media Pen/Marker

I saw this the other day at the art store and was wondering if anyone had tried it yet?

You get an empty marker with 2 ball bearings inside and the sizes range from a 0.8mm technical pen type thing to a massive 8mm? I think, giant chisel.

I'm more interested in the smallest nib to fill with either Indian ink or acrylic ink as a nice liner type pen, and if anyone's tried it, perhaps I could trouble you for a short review?

I have bought a pack of two - have yet to try them out! Will attempt to get round to it over the Christmas period and report back.

Haven't used these specifically, but have used the paint markers created by Liquitex and Montana. They are a fun way to paint with fluid/ink or airbrush/high flow paints. You do need to go over lines quite a bit, depending on the paint opacity, the coverage you want and what is already marked on the support. Worth a try for certain!

Re: FW Mixed Media Pen/Marker

I will definitely be looking forward to your first take on them. I myself won't be heading to any art supply store till probably a little after Christmas

I've been using the Montanas. Find them excellent for very rapidly laying out a composition and value sketch in acrylics en plein air. BTW, the wider tip variety, which is rectangular, can be used on edge or many ways to simulate a variety of brush strokes and thicknesses.

Looks like I won't be getting them. The 0.8mm technical pens are sold out locally when I went to check.
