By "new and improved" what does that mean? I had all twenty of these pens in their last formulation, and I had to throw them all out because either the nibs stopped working or the pens would blob out ink. Has the nib been refined or the ink reformulated? I loved the quality of the ink, but the pens themselves were troublesome. Thank you!
Thank you for your enquiry.
The Derwent Paint Pen are free flowing opaque water-based, highly pigmented, highly lightfast, paint pens allowing for layers of contrasting colours, paint runs and splashes, fine lines and colour blending. Whilst wet, the paint is water-soluble, once dry the paint is permanent. These are free flowing which is part of their design to allow for various and creative techniques Regular cleaning by removing the nib can reduce the flooding effect.
Derwent have recently updated and improved their range of Paint pens and Line markers.
The livery has been updated, the pens were formally the Derwent Graphik Line Painter pen and they are now branded as Derwent Paint Pen.
The barrel has been updated so it is easier to see the paint inside the pen with improved ink flow.
The biggest update in this range is with the Derwent Liner pen where there has been a new formulation to improve the waterproof quality of the pen.
