I chose alcohol markers for a long time. First I bought a set of Chinese, I had it for a year, then I decided to try it and I liked it! Therefore, the question arose about buying normal markers. I chose for a long time ... Of course, I wanted Copic, but I earn too little to buy them)) Therefore, I tried, read reviews, compared prices ...
Finally, after attending the workshop, I bought 20 commonly used colors of Marvy Uchida Le Plume 3000 markers and started coloring the stamps. I liked this business so much that I searched the Internet and found a great offer on Avito and bought more than 60 more.
The markers are Japanese, the company is quite old and probably more known for markers for all sorts of technical purposes and for fabric. They have less watercolor and alcohol, and even almost completely, are not known. The palette consists of 143 colors, which can be viewed on their official website.
It seems that having such a palette it would be possible to paint further, but the lack of nearby colors and for my case, these markers are probably not suitable ... But for the sketch, it’s probably the most!
About the markers themselves, their advantages and disadvantages. Organic shape and comfortable to hold. The brush is soft, thick with a thin tip.
An attempt at an example for readers. They are definitely not suitable for leatherette, but very much so for a sketch.
Liked the mix of colors. Although if you take a light marker on top of a dark one, then the color is eaten away (in some shades). But this is just an interesting and sometimes necessary effect.
Of the shortcomings, perhaps the fact that the color of the marker is only on the cap. On the other hand, I would love to. Everything has been fixed in the new version as far as I know.
The price of markers in stores is 150-200 rudders. I took for 170 in the store for artists and 100 for Avito.
In general, I like the markers, although there are flaws and not very well suited to my creativity.
