In terms of paper, these pens work beautifully on watercolor paper. On card stock or other smoother, less "thirsty" papers, if you use a light touch and don't scrub, you will see minimal pilling and little (if any) buckling. For coloring books, a very light hand and very little water works well, but with wetter applications, you will see buckling and some bleed through, especially with darker tones. Remember, most adult coloring books are not designed for wet applications - give them a break! They do work wonderfully in my coloring books that are specifically made for watercolor.
The price from Amazon for the full set of 80 is still significantly less than the per-marker price anywhere, and it is also less than the cost of buying one of the the smaller sets and adding the few additional colors that one would want to round out his/her palette.
I'm attaching photos of my swatch cards, and my markers in their storage cube (also available on Amazon). For each color, you'll see the color straight from the pen on the left, and water added to the swatch on the right. While monitors vary, you should be able to see the brilliance and variety of colors. Note, I have customized the pen caps with tiny swatches (they don't come this way).
The manufacturer indicates that these pens may be stored horizontally or upright, and I store them horizontally in their cube except when in use. I'm finding the brushes to be especially durable, returning to a point after each use. They are not refillable, but storing them horizontally will help get the most use out of each marker. I'm writing this review in June 2016, but I've used these pens for months and they show no signs of running out yet. When they do, I will likely replace them on an as-needed basis from a merchant that offers them in open stock.
In coloring books with thin paper the pens would bleed through and dried quickly thus not allowing any blending even with water. However with some of the higher quality coloring books the pens worked well for direct blending on the page and for water-assisted blending.
In Dagdrommar (Hanna Karlzon) and Blomstermandala (Maria Trolle) the pens blended well with each other and with water.
In Enchanted Forest: An Inky Quest & Coloring Book (Johanna Basford), I found great blending with and without water and no bleed through. Although in all cases when using water you want to be sure you use water lightly. I was using the Zig Detailer Watercolor Brush and had a bit too much water flowing and it pooled on the page. If too much water is pooling on the page you will get bleed through.
In the Enchanted Forest book I found it also took several seconds maybe even a minute for the ink to dry, so be cautious. This slower drying time is what allowed the pens to blend nicely compared to other coloring books.
The books I tried without success:
- The Magical City (Lizzie Mary Cullen) - did not bleed through but did not blend
- Floral Wonders Color Art for Everyone - did bleed through and did not blend
- Creative Haven: Cityscapes - did bleed through and did not blend
- Doodle Invasion (Kerby Rosanes) - did bleed through and did not blend
The picture is from Enchanted Forest. The green leaf is my first attempts at various blending techniques (covered by multiple YouTube videos - see Jennifer McGuire Ink). The left side brown leaf is blended using only the clean color brush pens (light brown and yellow). For the right side leaf I used water to blend the colors to the middle (same colors light brown and yellow).
I ordered the set of 80 as they are now available in the full set. I guess previously the largest set was 60. My set of 80 came in the standard plastic box shown but the pens were NOT individually wrapped, great for me since I could just start coloring. I made a color swatch sheet of all 80 colors and they were all flowing ink just fine. I'm no artist nor very creative nor did I want to spend the extra time and expense trying to order individual colors later, so I bought the full set.
I've been using colored pencils in my coloring books and was looking to use markers but wanted smooth gradations and blending which I couldn't seem to get with other water-based markers, looks like these clean color brush pens will work for me!
