Berol Colour Brush
Advantages: Can use for thin and thick lines and long life
Disadvantages: I wish they did a bigger pack with a wider array of colours
If you, like me, were born in the late 80's you might remember using Berol pens and felt tips at school. In fact in my primary school the Berol Writing Pens were the first pen we wrote with, the big step up from pencil!
Until writing this review I hadn't really noticed how many times I have used Berol products for most of my life. It is a good strong brand, made by a British company since 1969.
As the crafty little lady I am I have always kept plenty of pencils and crayons and paints etc. around. I actually bought my 12 pack of Berol Colour Paint Pens when I was 15 for my art GCSE, and believe it or not, after nearly 10 years, they are still going strong! I do look after my things so always putting lids back on straight away has probably helped, but still, they are resilient.
I still use them regularly to this day making cards for family and friends and always turn to them as my first port of call.
Because of the pointed tip you can use them for fine detail, or push down a little or use at an angle for broader strokes. If you treat them like a watercolour paintbrush you can get pale, delicate tones, or use as a pen, possibly going over them once or twice, to get bolder brighter colours.
Also these can be used for writing, and given the shape of the nib you can produce italic font.

Summary: Bright colours, brush nibs on felt tips - genius, and old reliable 'Berol' name. A great product!
