Pullingers Verdict on Staedtler Lumocolor Markers.
These are high quality pens that have a long ink life and with Staedtler’s DRYSAFE technology, they can be left uncapped for days without drying out. Colours are bold and will not fade and they produce a precise smooth line. Lumocolor Markers are very quick drying which makes them ideal for left-handed artists.
Try using the Non-Permanent Lumocolor Markers with water to create interesting art techniques. The water-soluble ink will bleed to give striking effects and if using the black ink it changes to an array of indigo and violet colours.
On the whole, Staedtler Lumocolor Markers are really useful pens to have in your Art Supplies!
