I had the pleasure of getting my hands on the new Talens markers by Pantone, and let me tell you, they did not disappoint! If you’re not familiar with Pantone, they are a company that is renowned for their color matching system, which is used by designers and artists around the world.
The Talens markers are a part of Pantone’s latest collection, which also includes marker inks and art pads, all of which are based on the Pantone Matching System. What sets these markers apart is their high-quality pigmented, water-based ink. The ink produces bright, vivid colors that really pop on paper.
Each marker comes with two different nibs, a brush and a chisel nib, which allows for both precise lines and broader strokes. And the best part? These markers are refillable, so you can continue to use them for a long time to come.
One thing that really impressed me about these markers is that the colors match perfectly to the Pantone colors. So if you’re a designer or artist who needs to work with specific Pantone colors, these markers are the perfect tool for you.
But what really sets these markers apart is their versatility. You can use them like regular markers, but there is another way to use them that really surprised me. By mixing the ink with water, you can create a beautiful watercolor effect. You can either dampen the page and add the markers on top, or apply the marker ink and quickly move the color around with a wet paintbrush.
And if you really want to get the most out of these markers, I highly recommend using them with the Talens | Pantone paper. This paper has been specially designed to provide optimal results for the Pantone colors, and it really does make a difference.
Talens markers by Pantone are a fantastic addition to any artist’s toolkit. With their high-quality pigmented ink, two different nibs, and the ability to create a beautiful watercolor effect, they are a versatile and reliable choice for any project. So why not give them a try and see what you can create in Pantone colors?
