What colored Markers are the best ?

Mixed Media Art Questions for Milliande


I'm wanting to invest in a set of color markers.

I love bright vibrant color/coverage.

The sharpies are great but in journaling in my moleskine, they bleed through. I'm leaning toward Copic markers. Maybe get a few at a time.

Any in put greatly appreciated. :)

Hi,

Colored Markers come in all sorts of varieties, and yes the Moleskine Drawing paper is quite thin so quite a few markers bleed through .

Whilst sharpies markers have the advantage of drawing over most surfaces which is fun for mixed media art journaling they thend to bleed through heaviliy on thinner art journal papers .

Personally I find that the copic markers also bleed quite a bit, they are alcohol based and do not like moleskine paper at all .. the bleed right through .. this can be avoided if one puts blotting paper behind the art journal page that you are working on .

Copic Markers have a special paper created to to work with them , but even there people have reported bleed through . They work well on illustration board and heavier surfaces and maybe even on watercolor paper that is hot pressed.

Personally when using markers I use
Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens
.. they come in a wide variety of colors and different nib width and are designed especially for drawing artists . I find them to be light fast with little bleed through and also good layering abilities They are waterbased, no alcohol based.

The general Faber Castell Artist Pen series comes in black, sepic and sanguine for pen and ink drawings with small nib sizes

The
Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens
come in chunky and fine nib .. some in sets like cool greys, warm pastels etc but can also be purchased individually ...


Hope this helps
