Mixed Media

One of the many great qualities of India ink is its opacity and ability to blend with other media. Color pencils, watercolor, and acrylic paint all partner perfectly with the Pitt Artist Pen. Let our ink pen be the foundation and outline of your artwork. After it dries, India ink is waterproof and can be painted over with other mediums without losing its quality. You can also provide a watercolor effect with the ink pen and water alone by dampening your surface before drawing with your pen. Mixed media techniques such as these create artwork that will last a lifetime.

Illustration and Design

A lot of personality can go into illustration. Comics, graffiti, manga, fashion, and digital design all have an artistic edge that need the right tool to be executed properly. The expressive powers of the Pitt Artist Pen can capture every detail in illustration; large and small. There are many techniques that can be used with Pitt Artist Pens to manipulate the color of your illustration beyond the 60 colors and six metallics we provide. Use techniques such as hatching to add density and detail, or you can even blend your colors. Along with the wide color range, nib sizes ranging from a 0.1mm extra superfine to an 8mm big brush allow illustrators and designers to capture minor details as precise as possible and easily cover extensive drawings when needed.

Hand Lettering and Bullet Journaling®

More modern uses of our Pitt Artist Pens are hand lettering and Bullet Journaling. Hand lettering brings back the classic love for detailed handwriting. A similar but modern spin off calligraphy and classic lettering, artists have taken this trend to new heights with different designs and techniques. Our Pitt Artist brush pen, bullet nib, or any of our fineliners are all you need to get lettering.

Bullet Journaling is more than just keeping a journal; it is a method to keeping your life organized in a balance of productivity and mindfulness. Pitt Artist Pens are a favorite for journaling because the India ink will not bleed through the paper and ruin the journal. The creativity that individuals display in their journals put any regular productivity method to shame. Standard logging or creatively designed layouts, we have Pitt Artist Pens for every Bullet Journal need.
