PITT Artist Pens are famous for combining a modern brush nib design with a tradition of India ink. India ink offers artists odourless, permanent, waterproof, lightfast inks with a large variety of vibrant colours. The durable nib gives the freedom to create versatile ink brush strokes of broad, medium to narrow with an even application of colour.
In many countries, ink drawings have a very long history among artists. Their expressive power, covering properties, resistance to ageing as well as the possibility of combining them with many other painting techniques have always made this medium interesting for artists and graphic designers. Faber-Castell has brought together all of the advantages of drawing in Indian ink in a modern and uncomplicated disposable pen - the PITT artist pen. The high-quality brush point works both straight and bent without breaking. While the light colours are transparent and, thus, well-suited to varnishing techniques, the dark colours have good covering qualities. PITT artist pens have unsurpassed light-fastness and the individual colours are marked with an asterisk-based code.
- Acid free
- Waterproof when dry
- Won't bleed through paper
- Remove the nib and turn it over to reveal a fresh point
On wet paper, PITT Artist Pens behave like India ink flowing in the paper and can still be reworked with a brush. Once dry, however, they are permanent and cannot be dissolved.
It is possible to paint or colour drawings using watercolours, once the ink is sufficiently dry. This will not affect the super bright colours and deep black ink.
It goes without saying that the PITT artist pens are well suited to all conventional techniques using traditional markers. Their significantly higher lightfastness gives them a higher advantage.
