I received the markers and set to make a color chart and check the " juiciness " of them. The markers worked great and flowed well. The only issue I have is one marker, potato brown does not have a chisel tip nib on it. There is no nib on that end at all so that kind of limits the use I can get from that marker. The other markers were A-OK.
Very nice markers!! 80 different colors - no repeats. Having a little trouble staying inside the lines of adult coloring books even with the narrow side but maybe I just need some practice - still think they are very nice and high quality. Little bag that they came in was so cute and convenient as well!
My daughter who is 13 thought these were great. They do bleed through and are hard to blend because they do dry inconsistently, but for a new artist these are great.
For the price, you can't beat this set.
Pros: price, variation in colors, blending
Cons: they tend to bleed, using lighter strokes help, but I have to stop before the lines, to ensure they don't bleed over, or use the broad side to get in small areas w/o bleeding. I ended up getting some Copics & Winsor & Newton set for faces and primary colors. Now they have spoiled me and I'll have to get more, but still use these for the vast color selection
the whole range of the colors are beautiful. however, the smell is really strong and . it is good to buy for the quality as that reasonable price.
I really like these makers, however - they tend to seep out of my lines when I use the fine tip. I have much easier control when using the broad side. Also, a few of my markers came with the broad tips coming out. Using them seems to put them back into place okay. I did find one marker with the nib completely out, and I cannot put it back. Besides that, they're alright.
Can't complain, colors are little off and not that easy to blend. But for the price it is good.
Great Product! Its not as good as copics (of course), but its VERY similar! Im happy with how it colors. The coverage is awesome. There is bleeding so use a sheet of scrap paper between pages. I gave 4 stars because it does not blend like copics. I found that try to blend make it look blotchy like a bleach stain. Not sure if im not doing it right or not. But I would recommend this product! I got the 80 colors. There isn't as much 'purples as I would of liked to see but I do use these all the time. I will upload a few pictures I have colored with these Markers.
a little difficult to open markers but great color and blending.
