How to Get the Most Out of a Too Cheap InvestmentWhen I first got these, I was extremely frustrated, because their pigments are super-fugitive any amount of water easily results in pigments separating dramatically. If you don't know this ahead of time, and yet for some reason want to do color mixing and blending, be prepared to slam your head against the wall repeatedly.However, I have managed to get decent use out of these, once I learned how to work around their quirks. If you have these, don't waste your $25 to $38 investment! Here's how best to use them.If you're into watercolors, a thing to know is that (a) these colors are all transparent, which is nice for certain effects, and (b) almost every color is a staining color, meaning that they (especially darker colors) cannot lift very well. They're not high-quality staining colors at that, because you need to move that color almost immediately with water if you're going to move it at all. Also (c) all colors are fugitive; expect dramatic color changes to occur within even just weeks to finished pieces. Scan in your pieces!Because these colors are transparent, they actually mix well (see picture 1, a color chart involving 11 of the colors). As a result, even a subset of these colors can result in vibrant, bold colors. However, note that for the most part you want to mix them on paper, like you would with watercolor pencils a dry-brush of multiple colors and then immediately activating and blending them with water. An example of this is the two peaches (pictures 2 and 3). Cold press and hot press will give different results typically you'll get smoother results on hot press and even bristol (picture 4, smooth bristol).Because these are brush bristles, you can do a lot of fun chinese brush painting techniques, at least for line work and dot work trying to do color shapes is difficult because these bristles aren't soft or flexible enough to do so. See picture 5. You can also see the ultra-staining, stubbornly-not-lifting nature of the "rain" which was originally intended to be a blended gradient background. (P.S. never let people know you didn't intend the effect... this is like 67% of art, at least.)One of the easiest ways to have fun with these brushes is to use them like you would water soluble pencils or fountain pens draw the contour, and then apply water to spread out the color deliberately. Combining this with the light colors that don't stain much can result in neat effects. You can get very delicate petals or light glows this way. (Picture 6, the bell flower closer to the bottom of the paper and the gelatinous cube in particular.)Washes are ... difficult. Waterbrushes like Pentel, Kuretake, and Niji will only take you so far, because their nylon bristles and weak waterflow and water containment aren't up to the task I destroyed my Kuretake waterbrush tip trying to make washes just 2 inches wide. A much *better* way to go about this is to use a real watercolor brush to apply water. See Pictures 7 and 8 for what you can do with drybrushing and then water on a real watercolor brush.Now, the super-staining qualities of these colors means that even careful drybrushing can result in unintended dark marks even after applying water. This is the point where you just kind of have to accept that you're going to get color separation through putting marker dye into a palette (just scribble the brush into a little palette well) and picking it up with a wet watercolor brush (waterbrushes do not do well at this). However, with careful practice, you'll learn how to reduce the effects of pigment separation, or at least choose colors where it doesn't look as bad. Plus you can use glazes instead of mixing color in a palette (a surefire way of getting unintended pigment separation in this set). See picture 9 for a dilute madder wash glazed over halfway by a light navy wash.Wet on wet techniques are fun way to play with these markers as well, as you can tell by the bottom of that same picture, but due to their thin nature, don't expect much body from this kind of technique. You get very wispy stuff even wispier than normal watercolors.And finally, picture 10 is something I did using but five colors. (Navy, yellow ochre, yellow, indigo, and madder.) As I said, color mixing is surprisingly good, and their transparency lends well to glazes (if only colors didn't separate so easily). I used concentrated marker dots to represent the flowers on the mossy/grassy rocks although this is a place where the transparency does not help.Anyways, my tips are this: go buy a good watercolor brush that can hold water, maybe a size 6 to a size 8 for doing a good consistent wash depending on brush manufacturer, and go buy good paper (Strathmore at the very least), a little palette, and you can have fun and even produce some neat art.And praise be that, mostly due to their nature, these colors aren't chalky like cheap watercolor paints are.I don't know how well other watercolor brush pens work out, whether Akashiya Sai are just horribly cheap or if this is just a common thing with these types of markers. I just know I'm moving to Daniel Smith and W&N tube watercolors now that I know the mercurial nature of watercolors in their most mercurial of presences this set in particular. I think nothing high quality watercolors can throw at me will phase me now.3So Awesome & Amazing - So Many Uses!For someone into mixed media art, these are exceptional! I could not be happier with these. I had a set of watercolor brush pens before, but they leaked all over and were just, frankly, a total pain in the butt. That hasn't been the case with these. I purchased these a few weeks ago and made sure I played with them quite a bit before posting a review. These lay down gorgeous color, which just gets darker and more intense the longer you keep the brush pen in one spot. Normally, when I use watercolors on top of modeling paste or spackle, the colors are very muted and soft. I have a hard time building up the color intensity over these other mediums - and it gets frustrating. The only way I can seem to get a good, solid color is to apply some clear gesso over the texture paste...but that hasn't been my experience with these.I am not a painter - and especially don't consider myself a watercolor expert. I just like to play...mixing paints and other mediums into strange soups and concoctions. I don't really pay attention to what I'm doing - I feel like adding something, or playing with some supply, and I go for it. If I don't like it I can always scrape it off, sop it up, or paint over it. This no-fear method has been working exceptionally well for me - and these are among the supplies I reach for the most. This will sound really odd (not if you knew me lol), but last night I used these to make gray male hair for a Styrofoam mannequin male head I'm making. (It's part of an all-out Halloween display I'm making for my back deck.) I unrolled a bunch of cotton balls (all I had on hand), put them in a little cup like the ones you get when you order take out and get a sauce. I painted the top of this cotton pile with the gray watercolor brush pen...then dumped water into the little cup. I began using my pan watercolors and a brush to add more gray and black to the cotton-filled water...but I wasn't getting the dark color I really wanted. Back to coloring the wet cotton with these brush pens.I left the cotton sitting in the blackish water for awhile, then carefully wrung out the excess water, spread out the cotton again, then left it sitting on parchment paper overnight so it could dry. It turned out wonderfully, thanks to these Akashiya Sai Watercolor Brush Pens. I just started adding the hair to the head, but it really looks like my neighbor, which is who I'm modeling this guy after. Yes, my use is conventional - but I LOVE these, no matter the purpose!!(I used the watercolor pens to add color to the textured flowers - done on a birch panel - in the first photo. The second and third photos depict a small portion of the cotton "hair".)5Two StarsSome of the markers are dried out. Don't really color well. Very underwhelmed.2Okay for basic coloring but not great quality for more advanced, detailed coloringThese watercolor brush pens are very pretty, highly pigmented, and work like typical watercolor brushes - until you try to work into more intermediate and advanced watercolor techniques. That is when you notice certain qualities to these pens that aren't up to snuff compared to others. My general recommendation for these is that if you're just into, say, a coloring book or something quick and easy like, say, kids' crafts, then these are okay (just okay). If you're into more quality and more artist-oriented watercolor brush pens, then I wouldn't recommend these.Let's start with what these pens are:- 20 colors, which is enough for basic coloring- brush tip, where there are individual thistles, instead of the single, solid felt tips of some other brush pens- Come in a nice package where the design makes sure you cap your pens tightly so that it can fit into the packaging- Highly pigmented, bright colors that are very pleasing to the eyeI bought these with the plans to make cards and dabble in watercoloring as a frequent hobby, so I needed something that I could use with water brushes for blending and mixing and other watercolor techniques. It is here that I found some aspects of these pens that were less than satisfactory. If you go on Youtube and look at video comparisons between watercolor brush pens, you'll find that a lot of my complaints were things that tried and true artists don't like.Things I didn't like:- The activation via water. These pigments soak into the watercolor paper so quickly that I can ONLY use my water brush to activate the ink RIGHT AFTER I apply the ink color. If you wait more than literally three seconds to activate and spread the ink with water, you would see a distinct patch where you applied color initially. Reactivation is even worse; these colors don't reactivate and spread well. It tints the water a little bit but the vast majority of pigment has already been absorbed into the paper. This is a definite no-no for watercoloring more intricate, detail-oriented images, and in terms of quality, not a very good indicator. If you see from the flower image, the gray background I colored in isn't very well spread out because after applying the gray ink, I couldn't move it well with the water brush even when I applied water right after the pigment.- The pigment BREAKS DOWN. It is not apparent in all of the pigments, but in one of my attached images, the blue ink I used clearly shows that the blue breaks down to a purple and a lighter blue shade. I only added water to this color when I wanted to spread it. While the effect is beautiful, this is NOT what you should expect from watercolor pens, because the color it is supposed to be isn't there.- Limited colors. As I find myself getting more and more invested with watercoloring and card making, I have found myself needing more and more diversity in colors. Right now the Kuretake Clean Color brush pens are very popular, and before I didn't want to invest in those markers and instead bought these. Now I realize that the investment for those Kuretake pens are worth it, since these unfortunately are not doing a great job. Currently I have the 80-set ordered (they are miraculously cheaper on Amazon than the 60 or 36 packs of the SAME PENS, huh) and will review those once they've arrived to play with.I've attached pictures of the swatches too. If you take a look at some of the colors, you can see what I mean by the spreading/activation that I mentioned in the bullet points above. For the swatches, I applied a block of color, then tried to spread it with my water brush. The gradation wasn't great, either.2Seem great until the run out in very few usesSeem great until the run out in very few uses. there is a reason they seem like the best deal ever for tho style brush pen2These are amazing, and I am obsessed with themThese are amazing, and I am obsessed with them. Thinking about getting a second set at some point because my preschooler looooves painting with them too! And I hate getting out messy tube paints, so everyone is happy! They afford more control to those not used to using brushes and are more comfortable with a brush pen tip. Color flow is consistent and VERY pigmented - when using them as watercolors, I set on page and immediately blend with water. They are terrific. I am very new to watercolors, and because of these feel much more confident that I can eventually get the looks I am aiming for.5Very impressive, exceptional quality brush pen set!This is a very beautiful & vibrant set of watercolor brush markers. I was initially on the fence over which set of brush markers to purchase, when I decided on these, and I am so pleased that I did!The quality is truly exceptional. The brush tips are very precise, the water based ink is very rich and vibrant. The color selection is perfect and exactly as shown in the product description.I use these in a variety of applications, mostly with stamping. The end results are beautiful! I highly recommend this wonderful set to anyone who is considering to purchase it. Also, the end caps are removable... So, one could refill these pens if needed. So far, I haven't experienced a pen gone dry. They have held up very well, ink wise, and that's with moderate use. Love these!5Secret weapon on art piecesI don't regret theses at all! Now it took a bit to learn how to use these so let me save you some time. These are more background watercolors/writing beautifully with watercolor to stay in the same media. In the picture I put up you can see the green and gray which are these watercolor brush pens. These pens don't blend well but the pigment sure moves but I recommend going at these with more of a color pencil style that you plan to blend. What I mean is you want to work from the darker areas first and spread it out because sometimes the pigment is absorbed so well into the paper the original line will remain transparent in the background through the lighter watercolor.You can really see that in the Easter Egg card with the gold background.I tend to go over the background watercolor with either color pencil or watercolor pencil (working in layers)These pens don't come marked so I highly recommend you leave them in the order that they arrived and make a color sample for your own reference. My own sheet is not equal in size square if squares but you can see the difference in the amount of pigment willing to move on cold press watercolor. I have had these markers for 6 months, none of my arrived dried out. They still work as good as I got them but I do make sure I double snap the close, it is very easy not to fully cap these markers. If you just keep putting them back in the case, you will know if they don't fit that they are no closed.I love these markers and I plan to buy these when I'm out!!! <35Wonderful for painting on-the-go!I got this for my painter sister for her birthday so that she could paint on-the-go without having to pack pallets/ brushes/ etc. You know the sign of a good gift when she just immediately opened them up and started painting, ignoring all other gifts. They flow beautifully, have clean, vibrant color, and are easily blended or diluted on a little plastic pallet if you wish to adjust the colors. I also got her thePentel Arts Aquash Fine Point Water Brush, which seems to work very well with these paints. I am a little worried that the brushes will get stained with other colors if the colors are blended or mixed, but it seems like they can be easily washed with a little water to remedy this. Overall a lovely product. I can't wait to see what my sister does with them!5So far, the best watercolor true brush pen on Amazon!I am a watercolor painter and frequently paint while I am traveling abroad. I love the freedom and spontaneity of watercolors and they are the easiest medium to travel with, but still difficult in some situations. I've never been a fan of markers and was thrilled to hear about the new watercolor markers that everyone is talking about. Luckily, the Akashiya Sai are wonderful in nearly every regard. They're more portable, less messy, and I can accomplish nearly every technique I use when painting with watercolors. Big washes are hard, but that's completely understandable. Mixing colors both on paper and on a pallet works very well. Blending on paper is a breeze, especially with a travel water-brush, and the colors are consistently bright, but never crazy neon (a problem I've run into with the Kuretake Fude watercolor brush pens). The only truly negative I can find, and this is more because I'm used to traditional watercolors, is that the pens do not put ink down on the paper when it is already very wet. Wet on wet doesn't work so well - the pens just soak up the water from the paper. However, this is a small complaint and is very easy to work around in most situations. The pens are a great addition to my toolset, but won't take the place of traditional watercolor. Overall I would definitely recommend this to a broad range of artists - experienced, beginner, and everyone in the middle too.4
