This is a review for the 72-color brush and chisel set of Ohuhu markers.
Fantastic value with great customer service—just don’t put the caps on the other side of the marker too tightly.
It looks like some of the reviews and questions under this listing are mixed between a 60-color set and the 72-color set I purchased. The 72-color set does include a colorless blender, and the marker caps look like they are designed to fit on the back of the marker—which they do for the most part (see the rest of the review for my experience.)
If you’re not familiar with the brand already, Ohuhu alcohol markers are a tremendous value for the price: an excellent way to get quality markers you can actually afford. The brush markers are delightful, and I’m very happy to see some lighter colors I haven’t seen in past Ohuhu sets. (I won’t complain if they come out with even more pastel colors in the future, though.)
Because the price is affordable and the customer service is excellent (email them if you have any issues: they’re very responsive), I absolutely think this is a five-star product regardless of the following information. These are just tips and things to be mindful of when using this product:
The marker caps do not match the colors exactly. I think they’re closer than the last set I bought (before they released the brush nibs), but you’re always better off swatching on the paper you’re going to use before you commit to your colors.
Be careful with the caps. I assumed the caps on the new brush markers were designed to be able to fit on the other end while in use, and I had issues with a cap getting stuck and a little damaged. Ohuhu service was extremely responsive and generous about making it right, so I’m still a very satisfied customer, but it might not hurt to be a little ginger and not jam the caps too roughly onto the other end of the marker. Some of them fit on more smoothly than others.
Don’t forget to store these markers sideways, not straight up and down, so that the ink is distributed equally between the two nibs on either side of the marker, and the marker always stays nice and juicy. If you don’t, one side may end up feeling dry, or the colors from the two sides may end up looking different from each other. There’s no way of knowing how the markers are stored in all the different phases of shipping and delivery, so if you have issues with dryness or feel there’s too big of a difference in color when using the two different nibs, try storing them sideways for a day or two before passing judgement. I stored them sideways overnight after they first arrived, and it worked like a charm.
Are these worth the money? YES. Absolutely, yes. This price can literally not be beaten for the quality.
