These Faber-Castell brush pens are pigmented, acid-free, and the individual colors are rated for lightfastness, just like your tubes of gouache and watercolor. Because they dry waterproof, you can letter over them without bleeding. Linda Schneider loves using them to write pointed pen scripts such as Copperplate and Spencerian - with a brush marker!

Colors available:
Dark Chrome Yellow 109, Light Yellow Glaze 104, Scarlet Red 118, Warm Grey 1 270, Cadmium Yellow 107, Black 199, Leaf Green 112, Orange Glaze 113, Phthalo Blue 110, Cobalt Turquoise 153, Sanguine 188, May Green 170, Chromium Green Opaque 174, Cream 102, Deep Scarlet Red 219, Green Gold 268, Ivory 103, Red Pale Geranium Lake 121, Sky Blue (Smalt Blue) 146, Crimson 134 and Cobalt Blue 143.

One each of Linda Schneider’s favorite five colors: Warm Grey I (270), Chromium Green Opaque (174), Red Pale Geranium Lake (121), Orange Glaze (113) and Sky (Smalt) Blue (146). The gray makes great shadow strokes for your colorful letters. Pigmented, acid-free, and the individual colors are rated for lightfastness.

M43-LS2. Pitt Brush Pen Set 2
M43-LS2. Pitt Brush Pen Set 2.

One each of five more of Linda Schneider's favorites: Green Gold (268), a beautiful ochre gold; Sanquine (188), a deep rich orange; May Green (170); Crimson (134) and Phthalo Blue (110). I find myself using this combination of markers a lot with the Warm Grey I (270). They are earthy jewel tones; elegant but not flashy. Set does not include Warm Grey.

Please note: Our full print catalog lists this set with Maganese Violet. That color has been discontinued and replaced with Crimson.

DVD23. Off Hand Flourishing DVD
DVD23. Off-Hand Flourishing: Techniques for Ornamental
Penmanship by Michael Sull. DVD.106 minutes.

Michael covers basic tools and materials: pen points, oblique holders, papers. He continues with instruction on preparing and using colored and gold inks, including mixing a sepia ink from vermilion sumi & Higgins Eternal; using Dr. Martin's Bleed Proof White; and Schmincke metallic gouaches.

The "off-hand" instruction begins with the primary flourishing strokes, and then Michel presents the basic steps for cartouches, scrolls, border designs, quills, birds, title flourishing, accent flourishes, and creative patterns. The DVD finishes with a selection of over 50 different historical designs by a range of master penmen. It's the closest thing to having Michael in the room teaching you!

All our DVDs are made to run on USA and Canada machines. If you live outside North America, you should check with the manual for your machine to see if it can play NTSC format DVDs. If your DVD player can't play our DVDs, your computer may be able to.
