I’ve been playing around with Derwent Graphik Line Painters. They’re quite versatile but also quite unpredictable. Like other paint pens that I’ve tried, you have to depress the nib for the paint to flow. If you get a nice puddle it’s fun to blow the colour around. It seems quite viscous for this and was more successful for me when I added a touch of water. While paint/ink is still wet on the paper it can be diluted and moved around the page as a wash. You have to move the pen swiftly and hold at a good angle for a finer line. The downside seems to be it flooding at times when you don’t want it to … I’m hoping that is a newbie problem rather than the pens themselves.
