Art Alternatives Illustration Markers combine vibrant, easy flowing alcohol-based inks with dual nibs, making them ideal for coloring on canvas, paper, art boards and many other surfaces. These markers are quick drying, non smearing and feature both a brush and chisel nib for easy filling and precision coloring. The brush tip is not robust, this is intended an an economy alternative to competing brands and should not be considered the same quality as more expensive alcohol based markers. If you are looking for a quality alcohol-based marker may we suggest Copic Ciao or Copic Sketch. For a smaller tip try Chameleon. If you need a lot of colours at a good price for one or two projects this brand is a great place to start.
