Brush marker FAQs

What is a brush marker?

A brush marker, also known as a brush pen, is a marker with a brush-shaped tip, similar to that of a paintbrush without the individual bristles. This tip is flexible and should keep its shape, allowing you to create lines with varying thicknesses depending on how you angle the brush and how hard you press the pen down.

How to use brush pens

Water-based and watercolour brush pens can be used like any regular marker and can be used on most dry, solid surfaces. The angle at which you use the pen and the pressure you apply will change the shape of the lines you create, allowing you to create elegant linework using both the brush and chisel ends.

How long do brush pens last?

If you take care of them, brush pens should last you a few years. This means always capping them when they're not in use and not pressing the nibs down so hard that they are damaged. You should also refrain from using brush markers on rough surfaces like concrete as this can cause the nibs to fray and tear. Of course, if you're using your markers for hours every day, they may run out of ink quicker than this!
