What is a Pitt Artist Pen®?
Posted on April 29 2019
Balance is key; a phrase nothing short of cliché but true. This could especially be applied to our world of art and creativity. There is a lot to learn from the artistic pioneers of our past; the reasons why art is the way it is today. While we appreciate the foundation of art, we must also embrace the future and continue to push boundaries with the tools and the media we use; balance! With the belief in balance in mind, we created the Pitt Artist Pen ®; a modernized spin on the historically timeless medium that is ink.
Faber-Castell’s Pitt Artist Pen has been the favorite artist quality pen for almost a decade; with its versatility and variety of nibs and colors, it’s not hard to see why. Available in 66 individual colors and nine different nib sizes, we encourage you to push the pen’s creative limits and discover what you can do with your art. Unlike most markers, the Pitt Artist Pen is made with India Ink; based on pigments and water. The use of India Ink makes our pens permanent and odorless with rich pigment and a high lightfastness rating. Almost any type of paper is suitable to use and the ink will not bleed through.
Our pens are used daily by artists worldwide for illustrations, fashion design, life drawings, portraits, sequential art and canvas paintings. The variety of nib sizes and the quality of the pen make it perfect for precise work but can also be used in an experimental way. Since the colors are transparent, they can easily be mixed to create even bolder color variations and a larger range of color. Add water to the equation and the Pitt Artist Pen takes on a new form of creativity. To further its functionality, our pen is a part of our unique color matching system, made to mix perfectly with other media.With vibrant colors flowing in precise, uniform lines or highly expressive strokes; Pitt Artist Pens are perfect for any style of art. Whether it’s hand lettering, bullet journaling, or creating a piece with mixed media, Faber-Castell has brought together all the advantages of drawing with India Ink in a modern and uncomplicated pen.
