Good markers, but two are dried out and unusable
November 27, 2017
I received my order of the 80 Ohuhu markers on time yesterday. Today, I created my color chart. I find some of the color names to be confusing and off the mark from the actual color. Some words are misspelled. Perhaps, the proper names were lost in translation.
Overall, the markers seem to be of good quality. I started coloring one of my pictures to test their level of pigmentation and bleed-through. As with all alcohol-based markers, Ohuhu markers do bleed through the cardstock paper I used. When I laid down a thin layer of colored pencil first before the marker, I could see the color on the other side of the paper but no ink actually bled through. That's acceptable to me, as I always keep a thin sheet of cardboard under my drawings when I'm working on them.
I believe I will enjoy using the Ohuhu markers.
My only complaint is that I can only use 78 of the 80 markers I received. One of the benefits of completing a color chart is you can quickly discover the range of potential color palettes and you uncover any problems immediately.
Unfortunately, two markers arrived completely dry and unusable - No. 174 Spring Dim Green and No. 98 Chestnut Brown. I am disappointed that I won't be able to use them. I have no idea what Spring Dim Green means, but the marker color looks like it will be a nice shade of green.
