Edding are a German maufacturer well known for producing high quality. I certainly found that to be the case at any rate!
First of all: the Fine, Broad, and Brush Colourpens, and Colour Markers.
The pens themselves are a delight to use, particularly the brush tips as they slide so smoothly across the paper and the flexibility of the nib really does feel like using a paintbrush! Covering large areas quickly is easy, a huge plus! Colours are bold and vibrant, and the water-based ink means they wash out of most textiles and most importantly, don't bleed through pages. They're also safe to be left cap-less for 3 days without drying out, and are odourless!
The only thing I would say with the brush tips is not to go over the same area twice if possible, as the tip area is so wide and wet with colour that it can soak the paper a bit and cause feathering- but that's all about technique, not the pens themselves.
Nib sizes are 0.5-1mm (fine), 1-2mm (broad), variable (brush), and 3mm (marker).
Now onto the Metallics!
As you can see on the picture with the hearts, I had to try and be very precise as these will cover black borders with no problem. The nib is 1-3mm, so these are probably best to use on designs which don't have too much border. I'll use these to add shine to mandalas or for making details pop, but I wouldn't use them for colouring large areas of paper as they do create lines. They don't bleed either :)
Each pen is made of metal, and you have to shake them first to get that lovely thick colour ready to use. I tested them on plastic as you can see in the photo, and the result is rich, broad colour. The bullet-style nibs are 1-2mm, so they're surprisingly thin, and dry very quickly. Also, the ink doesn't smell strong at all, as you might expect with this type of pen. Available in 14 different colours!
I hope you have enjoyed my review of Edding pens, I urge you to have some of these in your hoard, as the quality really is wonderful and they're not expensive. I can see these fast becoming my go-to pens, especially those brush tips :) Watch out for future colouring book reviews that will feature these pens in more action!
