Testing Pentel Sign Pen


Testing Pentel Sign Pen
Originally uploaded by PJBee
Jennifer, at Coastal Art Supply in Beaufort, found a water-soluble felt tip marker for me. It's a Pentel Sign Pen. I took it out for a spin today.

It has a hard tip that's very easy to write with. I like that with just a few marks on the paper, I can get a lot gray to black shades. I see great possibilities for fast sketching.

I also like that when I applied the waterbrush to the lettering, the letters stayed crisp.  Please click on the image for a larger view.

I say this pen gets the yummy award!  The pad is the Pentalic Nature Sketch sketchbook discussed in my previous post.

  3. Nice find - I'll have to check that one out. Always have trouble finding a black pen for washes where the wash stays a shade of black.

  4. Thanks for the tip.

    The Pilot Precise V5 works the same too. If I want waterproof, I use the Uniball Vision Micro.
