■Pastel colors with a popular elastomer brush that mask base paper

Incorporates “hollow resin particles” to mask (cover) the paper surface and creates vivid colors. When resin is wet (ink state), it transmits light, and when it dries, it becomes opaque to mask the paper surface. This reflective property promotes color development.
Developed with the premise of satisfying the demand for a “Fudenosuke with the supple elastomer brush which has gained a following with art fans that can draw on dark colored paper”. This was realized by blending hollow resin particles. In addition, in the case of dark black paper, the color develops after a few seconds when the resin becomes opaque and masks the paper.
In general, titanium oxide is used for markers designed to mask base paper, but because titanium oxide easily settles and clogs, a thicker nib and a fiber or rubber core with a high ink flow rate is needed.

Body shaft diameter 10 mm (maximum width 15 mm) x total length 141 mm (with cap) / 8 g
