There are so beautiful. Probably the most beautiful markers I ever owned. I am amazed considering they are much cheaper than the Tombows, which are not nearly as nice (in my opinion). The brush works perfectly. It glides across the paper and you can easily control the thickness. But most importantly, the colors are unreal. They are the most beautiful metallic colors I have found yet. I honestly don't need any others... These have convinced me to order the 120 pack of the Ohuhu alcohol markers as soon as possible.
