    M124. Sakura Microperm Marker
    M124. Sakura Microperm Marker

    Similar to the popular Pigma Micron, but this pen’s ink is specially formulated for writing on nonporous surfaces such as vinyl, plastic, glossy sheets, finished wood, and glass. Microperm ink dries quickly, is waterproof, and has permanent adherence on most surfaces. The pen draws an ultra-fine line, and the plastic tip is protected by a metal sleeve, so the width stays constant over the life of the pen.

    Georgia Angelopoulos uses this pen for marking on vinyl and plastic.

    01 (.25mm)
    03 (.35mm)

    N155. Luthis Pens
    N155. Luthis Pens.

    Folded metal pens for expressive writing and formal calligraphy. The tips are aluminum; the handles are unfinished wood. Approximately 6" long. Four styles are offered; each writes differently. The pens are from Argentina; they are labeled with their Spanish names.

    "They give great edges and hairlines and flow beautifully. For as thin an edge as it has, it's amazingly stable. And the thin handle makes manipulation easy. I can recommend them highly." - Carrie Imai

    Butterfly (Mariposa). Has two writing edges.
    Moth (Polillita). A smaller version of Butterfly (Mariposa).
    Fan (Abanico). The writing edge curve is similar to a standard folded pen or calligraphy ruling pen.
    Dragonfly (Libélula). The writing edge has a unique curve that allows you to change writing styles quickly. Carol DuBosch’s favorite of the four.

    Purchase all four and save: use code N155-S4.

    These poster pens are made of a non-rust nickel silver with a plastic handle. They produce very thin thins. Use them with the tooth blade uppermost. Clean with warm water after use. A new pen should be filled and worked gently on paper
    until the color (ink) flows. Any possible sign of scratching will soon wear off with use.
