Review: Monami Color Twin Brush

Monami is a Korean stationery company, they make pens, artist supplies and office supplies.
I've reviewed their live color DIY pens previously and loved them so when I saw these brush pens, I had to pick them up, it certainly helped that they were on sale too. 

There are 3 sets to choose from, each with an array of beautiful colours. 

First, each pen has brushes on both ends, which is different from most brush pens, which has a brush on one end and a fine tip marker on the other.  
The end with the pen's colour indicated has the bigger brush and the other end is a smaller brush. 

Initial impressions are that the brushes are quite pliable, even more so than the Tombow brush pen. 
The colours are very pigmented, bright and they flow easily. 

The 'Sea' set has 4 blue, 1 blue green and 1 grey. 

The 'Flower' set has 1 yellow, 1 orange, 1 beige, 2 pinks and 1 red. 

The 'Forest' set has 3 greens,  1 teal, 1 brown and 1 black. 

I found the brushes to be too soft for my liking but that's a personal choice. 
These pens would be great for colouring and projects that require pigmented pens.

Overall, a great set to pick up if you see it and need some more colours to use, not totally unique but still great!

Review: Staedtler Double Ended Lettering Pens

We sure do love our pens, especially when they go on sale! 

I picked up this set last year and they've sat unused so I decided to put them to the test.

This set is 12 colours and they are double ended. 
One end is a brush pen, the other is a simple felt tip.

True to Staedtler's reputation, the pens are great for beginners and easy to use. 
The brush is pliable but firm enough for people starting out with a brush pen and the colours are rich and pigmented. 
I especially like the Magenta colour, isn't it striking.  

The felt tips are basic but usable and complement the brush tips well. 

If I had one criticism, it would be that the construction of the pen is not the best. The plastic is slightly frayed in places and there appears to be glue residue in some places. 

Overall, it is a great first set for someone wanted a brush lettering pen but not wanting to invest in say the Tombow brush pens. 
If you see this on sale, snap it up!
