Berol Fabric Pens & Markers
Advantages: Lots of fun
Disadvantages: A little expensive . . . maybe?
All three of my children, in my opinion have had something of an artistic flair. I remember when my girls were growing up, every Christmas without fail they would ask for the latest color pens/pencils what ever happened to be the craze at the time. My son has proved to be no different as he loves to draw, paint, create.... anything connected with art.
So I looked for something a little bit different for him, I came across these Berol fluorescent fabric pens, I decided he would really like experimenting with these. So along with the pens I bought some cheap plain white Tee shirts. I decided he was going to enjoy this.
~Berol fluorescent fabric pens~
The pens being Berol pens, I knew they would be of good quality it's a company I've used for years and totally trust their products. In the box are 6 highly vibrant fluorescent coloring fabric pens. The pens are quite chunky with snap on/off lids, the tips of the pens are chisel shaped making precision easier while using them. The colors are yellow, pink, orange, green, blue and a peachy looking color. All the colors are extremely bright.
My son was quite impressed with these pens, he instantly decided he needed to customize all his clothes (No Josh I don't think so!) He has many designs that he has already sketched on paper and chose one to transfer into a work of art onto his white Tee shirt. The pens were really nice to use, they went onto the fabric as easy as a normal pen would write on paper. Loads of vibrant color in these pens and it oozes out as the pen is used. I had a go at shading in some areas of the Tee shirt and was amazed at how easily the color actually went on to the fabric. In between color changes, we left the Tee shirt to dry a little before proceeding with the next color.
Once the Tee shirt was finished it looked really good and the colors looked amazing.
So a good time was had by all with these pens. He doesn't use them all the time as he wants to keep them nice and the nibs clean. I must say he does have a tendency to look after his art things so they last him well. I can't really comment on exactly how long these pens are going to last because I don't know, but I guess if the lids are kept on and the pens are kept out of the reach of little ones, then I'd say they would last quite a while. They are Berol after all and Berol products usually last well, if looked after.
These pens I picked up for around £7.00 from Partners but I'm sure they can be found at many other places. I would recommend these pens especially if you have a budding artist in the house.
5 stars then for these Berol fluorescent fabric pens because I can't find any fault with them.
Thank you for reading my review which may also be posted on other sites.
