When we got the pens in the mail (2 days later, thanks Prime!) we were anxious to try them. There are many different shades of colors in this set, several purples, reds, yellows, blues, browns, and even grays and black. The tips of the pens are very soft, sharp pointed, nylon. These aren't like a felt or gel roller pen; you don't "color" like you would with the pens or pencils by making repetitive back and forth motions. The soft tip encourages more of a painting-type stroke with longer, smoother, sweeping type movements. With practice, sweeping through a curved area becomes a single fluid movement with the tip precisely on the edge of the line desired. The ink flows off the tip very easily and smoothly, but the darkest colors seem to bleed a little more than the medium and lighter colors. It takes a little bit to get the hang of using them, but once you do it is actually much easier and a LOT less work to color/paint areas than it is with a pen or pencil. We really, really, REALLY dig these pens!
They also don't bleed through. Sakura in general doesn't seem to bleed through actually. I've bought like 3 different items from them, not even their sharpie like marker that comes in their Manga Sensei pack bleeds through.
To definitely get more out of this, get a colorless blender for some nice fading. If you want to shade with markers, you will have to before hand know where you wanna put your shadows, then use your blender. Not really related to the markers but it's just something in general for all markers. Only markers that don't need such things are Copic markers which are A TON of money.
Colorless blender + these markers + some patience = reasonable price to replace Copic markers.
They also dry really quickly.
The markers itself are...okay. The nib is not as soft as I expect it to be, and it's not really a brush tip but more like a pointy nib. I would not recommend them on permanent projects. These markers are not lightfast, and the colors I put down either faded terribly or changed colors. If you were to invest in watercolor markers at all, I would place my trust in either Tombow, Le Plume, or the Winsor Newton watercolor markers.
Overall, these are probably great for kids and the younger generation who are just trying out watercolor media. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend these for mixed media or scrapbooking artists, or any other professional artist.
