New pens on black paper

I do like new pens

I spotted five metallic pens made by Bic in the shop today. So on a whim I bought them. I have to say I was impressed! They have large felt pen nibs and the ink flows well. The lines you can draw are a good weight and if you tip them on their side you get wider lines because they have a bevelled edge. The colours are strong and they seem to work well on my black cartridge paper sketch pad, they are nice and opaque. I will see how they work on white paper next.

      1. On the side in tiny letters it says ‘ for USA’ then in a circle ACMI at the top of the circle, AP In the centre of the circle and art and creative institute certified around the circles border. Below the circle it says conforms to ASTM D 4236
        Then fine metallic BIC permanent
