So first, let me share how I found these pens recently visiting my local Hobby Lobby. Guess how much they were on for sale for? $3.74 (Retail price: $14.99) Seriously, how awesome is that deal? If you have a Hobby Lobby in your local area go check them out. They have tons of stuff from art supplies, home decor, and other great things marked down for the summer.
Well back to why I wanted to share with you a pen review on what I thought about the Faber-Castell PITT Artist Lettering Set Pens. I purchased two of their sets: Brights & Primary color pens.
I’ll be using my Rhodia Dot Pad. I’m trying the Middle Purple Pink from the Brights set first. You will notice they have a thin pointed tip. I was nervous at first when I took the cap off. For one, I thought they were going to write flimsy. I thought they were going to be too soft for me to write with. Did I mentioned I am a heavy handed? Meaning I have a firm grip when I write and usually I apply to much pressure on brush tips. I have to constantly remind myself to relax my hand and not apply much pressure.
Although, they are not at all soft but have a firm tip. I am super excited because I think I have more pen control when brush tips that are firm. Unlike the Tombow Dual Brush Pens which I do love as well, but you have to be gentle with them while your lettering. As you notice as I apply pressure going in a downstroke the brush tips isn’t flimsy at all.
Here is another example of me using the Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pen Lettering Set doing an up stroke.
Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pen Lettering Set:
Primary Colors include May Green, Deep Scarlet Red, Cadmium Yellow, and Phthalo Blue
Brights Colors include Middle Purple Pink, Cobalt Green, Orange Glaze, and Light Green.

My thoughts about Faber-Castell PITT Artist Lettering sets I love them because they are comfortable to letter with and their tips are firm. If you’re looking for a brush pen that is not flimsy and steady to control I would recommend these brush pens. I’m a heavy-handed writer so when I use a brush pen where I lack control sometimes because I have to letter patiently because the tips might be too soft or flimsy. However, that is not the case for Faber-Castell PITT Artist Lettering set pens because they write very smoothly, flexible on the Rhodia dot pad. The colors are all vibrant and colorful.
Tell me what are your thoughts or have you tried Faber-Castell PINN Artist Lettering set brush collection.
