Today I am going to be reviewing the Zebra Funwari Brush pen! This is another smaller sized brush pen and I have a few colors to show you as well!
This is another pen that has a very tiny tip. I would say that it looks more similar to the Tombow Fude pen tip over the Pentel Touch tip, but I think that I’ll do an official comparison video between those 3 markers soon.
Watch the video review here:
I am going to be testing these pens out on this Canson Marker paper today. I originally purchased this pen a while ago, but only got it in gray. Since then, I realized that gray isn’t always the best to film because it tends to get washed out on camera, so when we decided to do the Penaday challenge I thought I’d grab a few colors to share with you!
So these are brand new pens and these particular ones hadn’t been used prior to this. As you can see through the lettering, they have a nice bold black color and because of the small size of the brush tip, you are able to get very thin upstrokes.
In the video above I do share the color swatches of the brush pens that I own. I did buy these individually so I’m not sure if there are more than I don’t have. One thing that I wanted to say about these brush pens is that they do feel very similar to the Tombow Fude hard tipped brush pen.
In my opinion they don’t feel as soft as the pentel touch, but they may get softer with time. I do think that if you’re trying to decide which of those 3 brush pens to purchase, part of your decision may come down to which colors you prefer so that’s why I think doing a side by side comparison will be a good idea.
In the video you will also find a blending test where I attempt to blend these brush pens using 2 different methods. I also did a water test using the red color, which definitely bled quite a lot. However, since filming that video I found out that the black pen and the colored pens are made with different types of ink (according to Jet Pens listing info), so the black pen is actually a bit more waterproof than the red one! Who knew?! I’ll be doing another water test in a future video and will post to my YouTube channel as well!
I hope this is helpful for you & let me know what you think about these brush pens! I will try to update this post with an update after I’ve used these for a bit longer, but make sure to follow me over on Instagram for real-time updates!
Thanks so much for watching and I’ll see you in my next one!
