Brush Pens & Markers allow you to control the thickness of lines by adjusting the pen’s pressure to paper (or whatever other surface you may be writing on).
Brush Pens achieve this versatility with their design of long flexible bristles, which finish at a point. Brush pens are favoured for drawing, sketching, graphic design, calligraphy and even technical drawing.
Here are the best brush pens and markers currently available in the UK.
