I bought these for my daughter. She enjoys drawing and loves using this style of marker, as she likes the brush feel and the look that she can get with them. She uses these with a thicker watercolor paper and really enjoys how they flow easily across the paper and they aren’t too runny, but also blend really well. She says that the colors blend into each other easily, but they don’t bleed too much if you don’t want them to. This is a great gift for any artist you know- inexpensive and they work great-perfect stocking stuffer!
