For over 150 years, English company Manuscript Pen co. have been at the forefront of pen nib manufacture and design. Creating some of the most innovative and fresh products in the mark making industry, Manuscript develop everything from traditional quills and inkwells to italic and coloured markers- which I'll be reviewing today.
The first thing I have to show you is the italic Calligraphy pens, from their 'Callicreative' range.
Next I have 3 sets of colouring markers, including fine, broad and brush tips. They come in a plastic wallet and are very reminiscent of those Berol pens you get at school, with lots of bright colours and variety.
All of these colouring pens contain washable ink and have a 14 day 'cap-off' period where they won't dry out- handy for when little fingers raid your colouring stash! Despite being waterbased ink, they run very smoothly across the paper and don't feather it easily- on a par with Staedtler Triplus. I just wish they came in more tones! They are very juicy and the colours are vivid and bold on the paper, so regardless of the fact they look like a children's product they really do step up to the mark for adult colouring. At under a fiver per pack of 12, they're extremely purse-friendly too!
Here's a cute little mandala I coloured with the brush tips :)
I hope you've enjoyed my review of these Manuscript products, and have learned about some really good quality pens you may not have come across before :)
