You can find all the color swatches, basic strokes for lettering practice and the lettered alphabet using these pens in the video tutorial.
These smaller type brush pens are great for beginners because the small tip is easier to control. They also have the right amount of firmness. I also love this size pen because they typically don’t fray as easily. Even though I try to always use smooth paper with my brush pens, I have been using this set of Kelly Creates Pens for some time and still don’t see any signs of damage.
The colors are one of my favorite things about this brush pen set. They are bold and bright without being just your regular primary colors. The pink berry color is so pretty!
This product is not water resistant. The color bleed from the water test I did in the video did make me wonder about using them in the future as watercolors in the future because the colors were really great.
For blending, I first tested the method where you draw the ink from one pen to the other – the results turned out fine but not ideal. Usually when using this method on the smaller fude pens it turns out more streaky than blended.
Blending using the method where you “pick up” the ink from a ceramic surface and it blended much better – it’s definitely my preferred method for blending.
The Kelly Create Small Brush Pens also last a long time. I’ve been using mine for a while and they are still going making them great value for money.
