Known for their high-quality and rich heritage, we did not think twice when selecting the Faber-Castell PITT Artist Big Brush Pen. This pen is about three times the size of the regular Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pen, but has a more versatile brush tip for fine, medium, and broad strokes. Its brilliant lightfast grade gives the pigments a vibrant color forever. The pen is suited for drawing, lettering, fashion sketching, and illustrating. 

Lightfast [adjective] - Resistant to all forms of light, especially natural sunlight. Some brands of paint or pigment have a rating system to describe how fade resistant it is when exposed to light. The higher the rating, the longer your color will last under light. 

K-12 by KRINK

Developed by an alternative street artist in San Francisco, the K-12 Paint Marker by KRINK is a refined pen-style tool from the KRINK family. This marker has a metal tip and is ideal for making fine lines and details. Give it a shake to loosen up the ink (you’ll hear a mixing bead inside the body), then press the tip to paper. To control the ink flow, gently squeeze the pen while making your mark.
