Hey everyone ,
I have finally got back round to making another inky tips post since its been way to long since my last one. So for those of you who don’t know what “inky tips” is , its my lil once a month blog series where I share a mix of inky things from illustrator related tips , my opinion on inky goods and advice on anything from pens to sketchbooks, paper, software, equipment and more.
So picking up with where I left off last time I’ve made quite afew inky purchases ( not ofcourse I’m not a pen addict pfft that’s silly you really couldn’t tell from my instagram). Today I thought I’d show the sakura pigma micron fine liner
Inky tip one : The sakura pigma micron is the third liner I’ve tried in my inky doodles, what I really love about them ( aside from the fact they come in many colours ) is the durable nib quality . I’m not sure whether I am just extremely inky but find that the nibs in my sakura liner lasts longer than previous ones I’ve tried , they also come in a variety of nib sizes from 0.05 to 0.08.
Inky tip two : Lastly they’re filled with archival ink meaning you can doodle your heart out and your illustrations won’t fade. I’ve also found they resist bleeding on a variety of paper types I’ve tried from cartridge paper to layout paper.
Price wise : When it comes to price I’d say they were quite a reasonable inky pen to buy starting at about £2.21 from most online stationary stores.
If you’re as big a pen geek ( or addict ) as I am this is definitely a pen to try and inky additional to any vast pen collection. Have you tried the sakura micron before and what did you think?
