Hello, hi, welcome everyone. Today’s blog post is actually a bit of a spontaneous one. You see, my family and I are in the process of moving to North Wales. This means that a lot of packing has happened and as such, the post I had in mind is currently in boxes.
Thankfully, my love of stationery is still around which helped me out with today’s post. I went to the Range on the day of writing this post and stumbled across these dual brush pens from Docrafts. They were £9.95 and I was immediately drawn to the colours. As such, I’m going to be reviewing these brush pens today.
I have swatched these pens a few times now, so I feel I’ve gotten a good sense of how they perform. Without further ado, let’s get into it.
Swatches and Colours
First things first, let’s start with the colour selection of these pens. There are 12 colours in total and they all have a muted sort of tone to them which I really like. There’s a good variety of colours in the pack as well, with blues, greens, yellows, etc. It makes for a versatile pack of brush pens, which I like.
I do find the names of the colours quite interesting. For example, the light sky blue pen is actually darker than the normal sky blue pen. I also find the turquoise pen interesting as it’s not a colour I would associate with turquoise. Regardless, I really like the colours even if the names don’t quite follow the actual colours!
As you can see from the photos and the name of these pens, these are a dual tip. You get a felt tip pen on one side and of course the brush pen on the other side. The quality of the felt tip pen side is really nice. They are very thin which I really like. In comparison to other dual tip brush pens I own, these are very close to the size of the Stationery Island Dual Tip markers as opposed to the Tombow Dual Brush Pens.
I’m happy to say that I am very pleased with the brush pen side of these markers. I had expectations that these would be very flexible for some reason but they are actually very sturdy and rigid. This means they are really good for beginners as you’re not as likely to end up fraying the ends. If we were to compare to the Tombows again, these are more sturdy than those.
To conclude, I am very happy that I purchased these brush pens and I look forward to using them in my work!
Thank you so much for reading and I shall see you next week!
