I took out all my pens, and started out my new sketchbook by testing them out. I also tried watercoloring in the book since it's not a watercolor album and I wanted to see how it holds up - it warped some, but I think I can live with it for this class.
Here's the list of pens I used:
Faber Castell Pitt
Precision Pen 01
Uni-ball vision micro
Fude Ball 1.5
I have a love/hate relationship with Micron - I used to love it for journaling in my Project Life, until I found the Precision Pen and my favorite pen ever - the Uni-ball vision micro I struggle with finding the right angle to use the micron..
The Faber Castell Pitt is a nice set - it comes in a set of 4 that also includes a brush pen, which I really like.
The Sharpie Fine is another reliable pen I like a lot.
The Fude Ball is apparently great to write on paint / mixed media. I haven't used it much yet but it does seem to write very smoothly. It is quite thick though, so I stick to my Uni-ball most of the time.
