Comments about Derwent Graphik Line Painters:
I like the way these pens write. They have a good tip and write clearly without any blotting. The divot in the cap so you can compress the nib (without impaling a finger or finding another tool) to help the ink flow prior to writing is a nice touch.However, they have to be shaken vigorously before use, and there is not much paint in the reservoir. The ones I received seem less than half full. Perhaps this is so the paint can be shaken properly, but it's not a very good price point for the quantity received. I also found that the "jungle" color, a grey, is translucent on a dark surface and doesn't show up the way any of the other three colors I purchased did.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought the white paint liner pen for the fine point and detail work i do on my ink drawings. The size was excellent but the opaqueness of the ink could have been better. I still had to go over the lines several times. The liquid in the pen needs to be shaken up really well, other wise it looks like the pen is a quarter full. For the price, its not a bad option.

I am in AP studio art and am using these line painters to accent some of my work and the ink that comes out is very nice and opaque and vibrant, but these pens just randomly vomit ink. blobs just come out. its very difficult to forsee but if you catch it in time, you can wipe it off the pen before it drips onto whatever youre working on.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Well. I'm having trouble with mine, but having read some of the other reviews, I'm going to hang in there and experiment with different techniques. My main problem is that they blot--and then refuse to work. If they only blotted, I could work with that, but they clog up. I store them flat and try to keep the nibs clean, but it doesn't help. Again, I'm going to keep experimenting with different ways of cleaning them to see if anything helps the flow. When the liners do work, they're great: they produce a good surface, and so far haven't noticed them drying too fast. Their opacity is good. They behave well with other media. So far, I've been trying to use them for small, detailed work--sometimes they're successful, sometimes not. I live in dread of them luring me into false security and then blotting all over an intricate drawing. As other reviewers have said, there's a learning curve. Really. Not sure I'd recommend them to others. Maybe with caveats like, "Don't start out by using them on an important project."
Loved the splatter effect with these.
Exactly what I was looking for and shipped fast. Very bright vivid colors and love box with all the pens.
Too expensive because they are only half full to begin with
from Lynchburg VA
These have nice colors, are easy to start, and dry well, but you don't get enough paint for the price. Other markers , like liquitex, are filled almost to the top but these are half empty before you even use them. Below is a doodle o did when I got them today. The paper is 5 1/2 inches by 7 inches. I'm almost out of the yellow/orange and the blue already. I'm not sure if the ones I got just weren't filled correctly, or if they are all like this. It's a shame that they are so stingy with the paint. These would be a good buy if it were t for the amount you get

Great Line Painter
By Linda Suzanne
This is a very useful waterbased pigment painter. The colors are blendable and a good variety. They're quite good at drizzzling or dripping if you like this kind of effect. Great for mixed media!!

Nice paint, the pen could be better.
By Marcelo the Illustrator
from Albuquerque, NM
The quality of the paint in the pens is excellent. Nice opacity, and the colors are just what I wanted. However, I do find that a little too much paint comes out when I'm using these. I am sure it's just that I'm gonna have to practice a bit more with them, but be forewarned there is a bit of a learning curve when it comes to controlling the flow of the paint.Otherwise, I think I'll eventually be able to make some pretty cool drawings with these.

Great pens, but very little ink in barrels.
from McAllen, TX
I really do like these pens, but they do have some faults. The colors are rich and vibrant, the paint dries permanently but you can work it like a watercolor before it dries which lets you add in all sorts of effects to your work. The paint literally explodes when it comes into contact with water.My main gripe with these pens is the amount of paint that you are actually provided with. They're not even filled to the halfway point. For the amount of money that you pay for these and how they advertise their use I'd expect them to be, at least, halfway filled. Similar paint pens like Molotow are filled almost to the top. Another note, is that they are a bit fickle and sometimes flood even if I'm applying light pressure, so I would not recommend these for people expecting a precise instrument for lining. I feel these are more for adding bright pops of color or erratic sketchy lines, so if you purchase these expecting to use them for fine details you might be disappointed.
I use these markers for art journaling, mostly on top of acrylic layers or collage. I like that they are not felt tip, so it gives s solid and slightly line of paint than a felt tip, making it a nice alternative. Practice getting used to using this tip as sometimes too much can come out. If you haven't used them in a while, shake them well, clean tip and practice on scrap before diving into your project.
