November Product Pick

Hey all.  I just have to share one of my favorite products with you today for the Product Pick of the Month.  It is the Faber Castell Pitt Pen.  As you can see, I love collecting these pens, and they come in two different sizes.

These markers contain archival India Ink.  They are permanent, smudge proof and waterproof once dry.  One of the reasons why I love them is for their awesome smudgability (I think I made that word up) when they are applied over matte or gel medium.  You can see in the below painting of the pumpkin where I used them to add color to the slices of patterns in the pumpkin.  I also used them to do the shading underneath and behind the pumpkin.

In this painting, I used the markers to color in parts of the owl.

And finally in this painting, I actually used the markers to color the face, neck and hair of this angel, which I created in the Kelly Rae Roberts “Spirit Wings” online calls (wonderful class and I highly recommend it).

I hope I have inspired you to give the Pitt Pens a try and if you have any other tips, tricks or great experiences with them, please share!  Thanks for stopping by 🙂
