There are soooo many different brush pens out there, and I feel compelled to try each and every one of them. The problem is… too many pens, too little time.
A few months ago, I happened to come across a set of Brush Sharpies in a big box craft store. I was shocked and had no idea Sharpie had brush pens! Of course I had to buy them and try them out.
There are different sets of Sharpies with different colours in the sets. I recently bought a second set with more primary colours. The affiliate link to purchase the sharpies is below.
My Instagram lettering videos have been really popular, especially the Sharpie Brush videos. I think it’s because you can get really thick downstrokes and the vibrant colour is really eye catching.
But there are some drawbacks to. First, the Sharpies (like all Sharpies) bleed through most paper unless it’s specialty. I might use them for special signage or quotes, but I don’t practice with them, also because they have a strong odor and they seem to dry out quickly.
If you would like to use my practice worksheets, click HERE and check them out…they work well with the Sharpie Brush pens too.
You can purchase specialty paper from art stores that is ‘bleed proof’ for alcohol markers, which I have done as well. But usually I just use my HP Premium Laserjet 32lbs.
For your shopping convenience, here are the affiliate links for the Sharpie Brush pens and HP paper. Click on the images to shop. I have this package of HP paper, which is 500 sheets, and it lasts FOREVER.
Because I get sooo many questions about using Sharpie Brush pens, I decided to make a YouTube video to explain the pros and cons of using them. Here is the video. You can also click HERE to visit my YouTube channel and subscribe so you don’t miss future tips and tutorials.
