What Are The Key Features Of Letraset FlexMarkers?

–  Letraset FlexMarkers contain the same professional quality permanent dye ink used in ProMarkers allowing you to use them together and achieve streak free colour.

–  You can use the Letraset FlexMarker Pens on paper, card, vellum, acetate, glass, wood, metal, plastic and some textiles.

–  The Letraset Flexmarker soft brush tip allows for a looser, more illustrative working style.  You can achieve curved contours thanks to its flexible tip.

–  The Letraset Flexmarker range has 148 translucent blendable colours.  The exclusive extra light pastel shades are perfect for applying light tints around main images and for subtle blending techniques.  Fashion Designers and Manga Artists love using these new colours to create skin tones.

–  As with ProMarker Pens, the Letraset FlexMarker colours can be layered for added depth and to create new shades.

–  A Letraset FlexMarker Blender Pen is also available to blend colours together more easily and to soften colour joins.

How To Blend With Letraset FlexMarkers

Top Tips For Using Letraset FlexMarkers:

– When building up subtle shading for skin tones start with the lightest colour first then gradually layer up the colours. You can add the darker colours as you progress.

– You may need to prime some of the lighter Letraset FlexMarker colours before their first use.  Using circular motions, colour on some scrap paper until the ink is pushed through the brush tip.

– You can create Calligraphy style lettering and art with the FlexMarker’s brush strokes.
