I love a lot of different types of craft supplies. However, one of my very favorites are brush pens, which I use in the majority of my hand lettering projects. Read on to learn more about four of my favorite brush pens.
Anyone who knows me can tell you that I can never resist picking up a new set whenever the opportunity presents itself. That means I’ve accumulated A LOT of brush pens over the years. Today, I’m going to share with you the four that stand out as my favorites.
Favorite Brush Pens
- Tombow Dual Brush Pen – If you caught last week’s blog post about my favorite travel lettering supplies, then you know that Tombow Dual Brush Pens are one of my absolute favorites. There are many things to love about these pens including the wide variety of colors available (over 100 to chose from) and the medium-sized nib. In my experience, the Tombow nib is the perfect medium size and is not often found in other brush pens.
- Faber Castell Albrecht Durer Artist Watercolor Marker – These markers are among the priciest ones I own, but in my opinion, they are well worth it! Like the Tombows above, these markers have two tips as well. A large brush on one end and a medium bullet nib on the other. I only have a few of these watercolor markers but have been so pleased with the ones I own. These markers are extra juicy (make sure you have nice, thick paper) and the colors are vibrant and gorgeous.
- Marvy Uchida LePen Flex – My go-to brush pen when I’m looking for a small, flexible nib. These pens live up to their name with a flexible nib perfect for all kinds of projects. I use these most often in my morning devotional books and scrappy journals. To my knowledge, there are only 18 colors available: jewel tones, pastels, and primary, but those 18 colors are awfully pretty!
- Tombow Fudenosuke Hard Nib, Colors – The nibs on these markers are slightly smaller than the LePen Flex pens above and are quite a bit harder. That means the nib is stiffer and is easier to control. Great for those just starting out but also great for everyone else too! The majority of the time, I use these pens to create shadows and add detail to larger lettering pieces. These are excellent for journaling and stand-alone lettering projects as well!
