So many brush pens!

When you want to start with brush lettering you will first need a brush pen. Of course you can start with a brush and watercolor, but especially for beginners brush pens are much easier to handle because of a very simple reason: you can concentrate on writing and don’t need to get more paint onto your brush after every one or two letters!

Luckily nowadays it is no problem to get a good brush pen – quite the opposite, you have to find the right one for you in a wide range of colors and styles. That’s why I tested 10 brush pens for you, 5 bigger ones and 5 smaller ones.

Except for the Kuretake which I can’t handle at all (maybe because I am left-handed and write „against“ the stroke) all brush pens do their job. My favourite ones have been both Tombows and the Pentel as I have the most control over them while writing.

But see for yourself:
