Bianyo Classic Series Alcohol-Based Dual Tip Art Markers, Set of 72
I find these markers really good quality. I agree with Van though, the color on the tip of the marker doesn't really match the actual color, but I always make sure to have a test paper before drawing. Besides that, these markers are perfect! I also love how the colors are just solid when you draw and you can't really see the different layers.
The chisel tips can make them a little odd to work with, especially when it comes to blending, but it also makes them very good for detail work. I've had a set for about 2 years, and I think they were in heavy use for maybe 6-ish months of those? I mostly switched to digital art, but I picked back up traditional on a whim and rediscovered how much fun these are. Highly recommend. The one issue I have is that the colors don't match what's on the marker's top probably a good 30% of the time, but I imagine that's also dependent on things like the kind of paper used. Just be sure to keep a test strip handy so you can make sure you get the color you want. It can also be a little hard to get the markers to blend because they dry very fast after they hit the paper, but it's good if you like clean edges and firm borders in your art. And blending certainly isn't impossible, you just need to act fast. Overall, I'd really recommend these. I'd even go so far as to say I like them better than I did my Prismacolors, which had issues with the brush tips falling off on occasion. These are much more sturdy.
I was a bit confused when I received the markers. I specifically did NOT order from Amazon. I don’t want to support them in any way. However, they arrived in an Amazon box. Bummed about that.
Santa brought a set of these for my daughter, but one was dried out and another had leaked in transit. I emailed customer service (with pics) and they quickly replied with a plan to replace the 2 markers + a sent her a bonus item to make up for the inconvenience. My daughter loves these markers and her bonus pens! Thank you for the great customer service!!
Pens are Great for all levels, bought these as a gift last year, they lost the set in a fire and we ordered these as a replacement since he missed them so much, bought a second set for another family member. Shipment was prompt and accurate.
