Last week I received an order of paint pens as I've been looking for something with a fine tip, opaque, white and easy to hold in my hand. Since I like to add quotes to some of my portraits, I like to use my own handwriting as it feels like an extension of how I paint. In the past I used the Uni-ball but during the pandemic have struggled to get my hands on one since it comes from Japan, so initially I ordered several different brands, but after disappointment, was so happy to get another Uni-ball again - back to the old. I decided to try the Aquarelle pencil which was fairly nice, but not as fine or opaque as I'd like though this one will be nice for drawing on top of paint in my journals and on canvases when I want to make little adjustments. The ranger tends to be a little more transparent and 'skips' when writing, especially on canvas. I've had this for awhile but it has never worked well so it, unfortunately, is going in the trash. The Uni-ball Signo Broad, as always, is perfect. The 0.7 mm Posca is nice but requires so much 'prep'....it needs to be shaken and the point pressed down repeatedly before it works...the ink is also less fine than the uni-ball so it will be terrific to use in paintings but not my favourite for writing. The Sharpee, as an oil base is not my favourite at all...the nib is to thick and the ink spreads too much...plus I'm not a fan of oil. I think this will be used for labelling packaging. Finally, the original Posca is nice for paintings but too thick for my portraits. Maybe if I created larger portraits it would be fine, but not for the sizes I've been working in. As I mentioned in my YouTube video in my previous post, it appears that the Uni-ball has won, once again, and that everything old is new again. This was a fun experiment, but if I have learned anything in my lifetime, it is to stick with what I know and love best.
