From Manuscript we received a set of Colour Creative Markers Fine for testing and writing a review about. We want to than Manuscript very much for this.
Information you can find on the internet: Let your imagination run wild with Colour Creative felt tip markers… Suitable for children of all ages and adults the felt markers are designed not only to deliver beautiful colour but also to meet the demands of parents teachers and children with superior features such as washable ink ventilated caps for safety and a comfort grip.
- 12 Fine (2mm) fibre tip marker pens
- Purple, Dark Green, Red, Pink, Black, Brown, Turquoise, Violet, Grey, Yellow, Orange and Light Green
- Comfort grip
- Ventilated cap- 14 day cap off
- Washable ink
What came to notice right away was that the pens are in the box upside down. Why this is so I can’t say. Maybe because when the box hangs the ink stays in the tips.
At first I had some trouble getting the cap of, but when you twist it instead of pulling it, it comes off very easily. You will see that there is a nice grip where you hold the pen, which enables you to colour in the right position.
It says on the packaging that the tips are 2mm in width, but putting different pens next to them which were supposed to be 1mm, the 2mm Colour Creative pens were smaller than the 1mm pens of the other brands. So I’m not sure whether the 2mm is accurate or not. You can draw fine lines with the nevertheless.
Of course I coloured with these pens too. I coloured a design from Het enige echte mandalakleurboek om samen te kleuren. The colour display is very nice. During colouring I got the feeling the colours would become smudgy, but after they dried they became very nice and even again. The colurs are beautiful and bright. The ink ran nicely from the pens and remained in place. It stayed between the lines nicely.
Next I coloured a design from the Enige echte scheurkalender 2016. The thin paper invites for a test of course. I was curious whether the paper would remain in good condition too, and it did. Even when going over the same spot multiple times, the paper remained well. The ink pressed through to the backside however, but because it is printed one-sided, that is no problem. So the pens colour nicely on this paper too and I’m very happy with the result.
Conclusion : These Colour Creative markers colour very nicely. The tip is supposed to be mm, but in comparison to other 1mm pens, they make smaller lines than the other pens do. I like the colours very much. The colours remain nice and bright when dried. The ink presses through a little on thinner paper, but that is a matter of testing in the different books. I think the pens are a very nice asset just by the bright colours.
