As a few of you had asked my opinion on Spectrum Noirs I thought it would be nice to road test them and give them a whirl, so here goes.
Firstly an image coloured with them.
Back to School by Mo’s Digital Pencil was my image choice to try out the pens, one of the first things that I notice about the pens was that the nib needed to be primed by that I mean scribbling on a scrap piece of card to get the ink through to the nib, this ensured it would be wet enough to blend colours successfully, I also got best result by laying down the light shades first then building up the darker areas and then going back to the lighter shade and dragging from the dark through to the light shade.
In honesty a good value for money pen and can’t wait to see more shades in it.
For me the downside to the Spectrum Noirs has to be this….
My husband Chris thinks that he has shares on them ha ha.
They won’t stop me using other brands I still love my Promarkers and my Copic pens instead I will use them alongside my others and they do deserve a place alongside them..
