A Nice Set Of Fine Tip Markers From Magicdo

Whenever I get a chance, I love to be creative. Whether it is sewing, stamping, drawing, or any number of other fun things, I find it relaxing and uplifting to express myself through art and design.

One thing I love to do is draw and illustrate, so I was excited to try out these markers from Magicdo. The markers are water-based and fade resistant. The 0.05 nib is a good size to use for a number of projects you might do.

The set of 12 colors are fairly close to the color indicator on the pen. Most tend to dry just a little darker than the color on the cap.  They apply to paper really well. They have a smooth ink flow and there does not appear to be any feathering. I did find a few places where it was difficult to get an even coloring without too much overlap of the layers. The colors are nice and bright. I like them a lot and it is a good basic set to start with.

Unfortunately, these pens do not blend at all. If you try, it ends up looking a little like mud and the paper gets too saturated with ink. Also, depending on the weight of the paper you are working on, the pens can bleed through. I was disappointed with that, so I recommend in a coloring book to place a sheet or two of paper under the page you are working on just in case.

What I found I like these pens the most for is lettering and writing. The fine tip really helps me get a nice look and I love to fill in with colored pencil or watercolor. Since the ink will not run, it works great for that!
