Bought a few basic colors of Tombow Dual Brush Pens.  Looks like I'll need a lot more practice if I want to continue working with them.

Palm Tree

Seascape - Love the sky color from blue, magenta, and red blends. Anything larger than this 3 x 4 piece would be difficult as it would dry before it could be finished.

Both were done on 140lb. watercolor paper - cold pressed.

Drawback is that you have to work quickly because the color dries quickly.  I think they would be great on small decorative pieces when working with kids or for embellishing and lettering on mixed media pieces.

No idea what these pens are, but could you not damp the paper first to slow drying?
Cheers, Val

Thanks, Trev and Val

I bought them from a local office supply place that has a fairly good art department.  I paid $1.95 each (USD).  Tombow has them in this ad for $3.19 (yikes, plus shipping?)  https://tombowusa.com/dual-brush-pen-807.html
 
Would have been much cheaper to buy with Amazon Prime.  Oh, well, I wanted them before I head out on vacation to Cape Cod, but I am not crazy enough about them to bother bringing them.

Val, I'll try wetting the paper and see if that helps.

Love the vigour of the palm tree. I can almost hear the leaves rattle. I've always been a bit dubious about marker brush pens, and thought they would give scratchy uneven colour, like some kiddies' markers, but you seem to have overcome that, if it was a problem in the first place. Maybe they would good for pen & Ink or in mixed media paintings? You are so adventurous, Mea, always trying out new products.
