But then I learned how to use it for my art work. Sometimes I’ll use it for some line work and apply a wet brush (or something like a water pen) to the edge to create shading. Most of the time I do line work (either preconceived or not) and mist it with water using a coarse sprayer. Every time I come up with something different but something I can use. The black pen produces wonderful blues and pinks. The brown marker will give some nice reds. The other colors pretty much stay the color they are.I used to be afraid of that white paper (oh, that reminds me; use a smooth paper. Absorbent paper won’t work.)but use of the Elegant Writer gives me a, sort of structure to create on. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (8) Reply 11 of 11 people found the following review helpful Good Quality Calligraphy Pens, February 11, 2015 By Von Reeder – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Speedball Elegant Writer 4 Calligraphy Marker Instructional Set (Kitchen) Nice set of 3 different sizes of calligraphy pens. (Note that 2 of the pens are the same size 2.0.) The pens write smoothly and evenly with good ink distribution. I did have difficulty with the 2.5 sized pen in that the flat head actually wasn’t flat, but slightly concaved, creating a gap and causing a double strike at each end instead of being a full line. A quick call to the manufacturer replaced my defective pen promptly. 🙂 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 9 of 10 people found the following review helpful Great price for calligraphy pens!, February 14, 2015 By Jeanne R – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Speedball Elegant Writer 4 Calligraphy Marker Instructional Set (Kitchen) Great to have a multi-pack of pens if you do a lot of hand lettering. Not as good as the calligraphy pens from Japan, but then you are not paying (as I have) $3.95 a pen. Seem dry when just out of the package, but did a few lines and circles to get the ink flowing and softened the felt tip. I don’t like the mess of metal pen nibs or ink cartridges, so having a felt tip is great. You can have them at your desk or in your bag. Use the pen to write a quick note or birthday card, makes it look extra special. Also use for any kind of lettering you need for crafts. I will order these again! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment (1) Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
