Have you heard of this new brush pen for hand lettering?! The Karin Brushmarker Pro is quickly becoming a hand lettering and modern calligraphy favorite!
This review is part of my Pen a Day Lettering Challenge and although this is not a sponsored review, I was sent this pack along with the Karin Metallic Markers. Watch the video or find the full review below.
These markers have recently become very popular and are often compared to the Sharpie Stained Markers. They are definitely not identical and the brush tips on the Karin Markers are bigger. Both markers hold their shape really well and in my experience, do not fray.
The size of these brush tip markers are easy to control because they are a great in-between marker, not too big or too small. Many of the colors are very juicy and they just seem to last a long time. All of these features are a lot to ask in a brush pen so there are really just a lot of good things to say about them!
They are not water resistant and are very blendable. Watch the video to see the blending technique I prefer with these markers using a similar technique you would use with watercolor.
They work perfectly with my lettering worksheets that you can use for medium to large size brush markers to practice and improve your lettering. If you’re new to hand lettering, my Lettering Challenges are a great place to start or join my FREE Lettering Mini-Course.
