These pens have been a real revelation. Made to have individual fine bristles like a brush, but saturated with colour like a pen. You can do tip to tip blending with them without contaminating the colours. You can even dip them in water! Use with a wet brush and turn them into watercolours. They have been a bestseller since we introduced them just over a year ago. (Kuretake have lost their UK distributor, so have been unable to replenish stocks. I'm hanging on in the hope they find someone to take over, but until then, the stand will be looking a little forlorn.)
Watersoluble like the Clean Colour Brush Pen, but twin ended. One end has a slim fibre tip like a traditional felt pen, but the other end is a 'brush' pen that has a firm spongy feel. It is exceptionally juicy, and good for laying down lots of colour. The watersoluble aspect works best when done on watercolour paper.
See above for stock info on Kuretake products.
Stabilo 88 Fineliner
A fineline pen with a 0.4mm nib that is suitable for detailed drawing, general sketching and even writing. Perfect for colouring books where fine detail is required.
Stabilo 68 Felt Pen
A top quality felt pen with a 1mm nib that is used by artists and designers, and as with a lot of Stabilo products, you are able to leave the pen lid off for 24 hours before the ink dries up.
Derwent Graphik Line Makers
A range of fineline markers from Derwent. Available in 3 colours (black, sepia and graphite) and 3 sizes, 0.1- 0.3 - 0.5
We also stock the graphite in single pens.
PEBEO 4 ARTIST MARKERS
A brilliant range of markers that differ from the norm as they are oil based. Available in a good range of colours, they are permanent with excellent lightfast properties. Exceptional on non-porous surfaces like glass, plastic and metal as well as canvas, board and card. Unlike a lot of markers (acrylic, particularly) the nib stays 'juicy' and workable. Just shake to mix the paint, pump the nib and away you go.
Royal & Langnickel Azure Markers
Incredible new alcohol based markers from Royal and Langnickel. Sold in packs of seven, which includes a colourless blender, these twin tipped pens are amazing value and superb quality.

The brand new watercolour marker range from Faber Castell. We stock the full range singly and in sets. Intense colour that can be diluted to the most delicate of washes.
Posca Acrylic Markers
An amazing marker pen filled with acrylic paint. Available in a variety of nib widths and colours, this marker can be used for fine art, or for craft as it will adhere to most surfaces.
