These pens have a selection of point diameters from fine to thick ( from .01, .03, .05 up to .08 ) and the ink IS WATERPROOF, meaning I can use a technique where I first do a very impressionistic or free-flowing sketch, even a contour drawing, then dash in the watercolor. This is a very useful technique for making greeting cards. (A contour drawing is when you put your pen down, look at the object you are drawing and follow the outlines of the object, never lifting your pen. If you want to see how to use this in your artwork, go look at Charles Reid's watercolor work. His graphite underdrawings are done with this contour method and it's a great exercise, if you've never done it. Go try.)
This set has all kinds of uses, and I just love it.
I'm so happy I found them for the price I bought them. The black ink itself is very dark and pure. The pens write smoothly and do not smudge or bleed. I do think the pens are a bit pricey for the physical appearance of the pens however if you appreciate a nice pen and don't mind the plastic clear packaging, they are worth it. Also, the pens them self state the point size so you know what point you're grabbing. I consider these my go to pens for writing, art, and even signing contracts! They truly are universal and whenever someone asks me to borrow a pen when I am holding one of these, I take a second to explain how much I care about these pens and ask that they please return it to me when done.. That's how special these pens are to me!
EDIT: I contacted the company, and they said it's made of pigment ink and it is waterproof, but you have to wait a bit before you put water on it. I still wouldn't purchase these again though, but it was nice to hear back from the company so I edited it to 3 stars.
EDIT 2: (2-1-16) I was inking with these pens recently and one (the 01) broke inside and a huge blob of ink dripped onto my drawing. Sigh. Also, the white text on the pens rubbed off and now it's illegible, something that never happened with my Faber Castell pens- so I have to figure out which pen is which by guessing.

These pens are not waterproof as advertised. I use them for Pen and Wash painting and the ink runs with it gets wet even if it's been allowed to dry for hours.Published 17 months ago by LeeBee
