    Please help me find this "brush"-pen.

    Thank you for reading this post.

    I really miss this brushpen. It's a fantastic tool, and I've never found anything that works as good as this. I was hoping that you people could help me find it.

    Please help me find this "brush"-pen.

    Thanks for looking. Please give me links to the product or names of manufacturer. Any clue is good.

    Hope you can help me

    I suggest the company PENTEL. they make awesome brushpens, maybe even the one you're looking for.

    Well the best I could find is something called a Colour Shaper or Rubber Tipped Shaping Tool. They look like Brushes and might be a passable substitute but doesn't fit your silhouette completely. Good luck in your search.
    Here's the link:

    Well, I haven't tried pentel yet, but Copic has a multiliner with a brush tip. Sakura Pigma also has a similar brush pen. These look like regular pens, and have insta-drying, non bleeding ink.

    The Copic's tip seems to hold up a little better than the sakura one, which loses it's crisp edge fairly fast. Plus you can buy replacement nibs and ink refills for the Copic.. so it's the one I would recommend.

    I suggest This brush pen : http://www.dickblick.com/zz207/46/
    it is not the pen you are looking for, but it is awesome with thin lines and thick, you can get super thin. it is a bit pricey, but I gotta say I'm in love with it.
    here is an example of how thin and thick you can get with it, one of my drawings.

    I have one of these. Well, had, I gave it up after a few months because I kept having to order new ones. The hairs on the tip kept spreading and I kept losing that thin line I was loving so much.

    How have you kept that from happening? I keep the pen in its own case, and I'm always really gentle with it, but it just kept happening. I went through three pens before calling it quits.

    hmm I don't know. I guess I don't spread the bristles too often, I use alot more thin lines then fat thick ones. I also have a really light touch when I do the thin line, could get more consistent and even with them though, but I think a lot of it is about control. Or maybe they have just made better bristle since you have used them, maybe. I aslo don't use my pen everyday so that could be part of the wear, is useing it all the time. Though I plan on trying other brands just for the hell of it to see if their might be a brand that is cheaper but just as good. I think I will try those pentel pen next.

    Also one other thing. I found when you put in a new ink Cartridge with those pen, the ink tends to come out heavy at first. so I wait a bit before I use it again, so the ink isn't so fresh. Weird I know.

    I remember those pens! The rubber tip was great, more responsive than a felt tip without the splaying problems of an actual brush. Unfortunately, I havent seen them in ages and don't remember who made them, so I guess I'm not much help.

    Thanks everyone
    A shame that no one can find it.
    I guess I'll write an angry-mail to pentel.
    Is it ok if I link to this thread?
