PITT artist pens are famous for combining a modern brush nib design with traditional India ink. India ink offers artist odorless, permanent, waterproof, light-fast ink in 48 vibrant colors. The durable nib gives the freedom to create broad, medium or narrow brush strokes with an even application of color.
In many countries, ink drawings have a very long history among artists. Their expressive power, covering properties, resistance to ageing as well as the possibility of combining them with many other painting techniques have always made this medium interesting for artists and graphic designers. Faber-Castell has brought together all of the advantages of drawing in Indian ink in a modern and uncomplicated disposable pen - the PITT artist pen. The high-quality brush point works both straight and bent without breaking. While the light colours are transparent and, thus, well-suited to varnishing techniques, the dark colours have good covering qualities. PITT artist pens have unsurpassed light-fastness and the individual colours are marked with an asterisk-based code.
