The PITT artist pen by Faber-Castell combines the vibrancy and permanence of traditional India drawing ink with the convenience of a modern disposable pen.
The flexible point of the B brush pen creates expressive lines from 1â€“5 mm in width.
The pigmented and lightfast drawing ink is ideal for sketches, drawings, layouts, fashion design, and illustration. The ink is also water-resistant, permanent, odor-free, acid-free, and pH neutral.
The asterisks on the pen barrel specify the level of lightfastness:
*** = maximum (100+ years)
** = very good (25+ years)
* = good (5+ years)
This set of B (Brush) pens contains 6 colors. These are the colors, listed with color name, color number, and asterisks indicating lightfastness: Cadmium Yellow 107 ***, Dark Chrome Yellow 109 ***, Phtalo Blue 110 ***, Pink Carmine 127 **, Purple Violet 136 ***, and Permanent Green Olive 167 **.
Note: PITT artist pens should be stored horizontally for best performance. If the ink appears darker than it should, store the pen horizontally or tip up for a day or two.
