ZSCM 60 Colors Dual Marker Pens Reviewed

Two Points For Coloring With Marker Pens

I've mentioned before that I like to color as a form of relaxation. Recently, I tried some dual marker pens instead of colored pencils. I would like to review what I used with you today.

Often when I color with my grandkids, they opt for a felt tip marker instead of coloring crayons or pencils. Up until recently, I didn't choose to use the markers because the tips were wide and they were kind of on the messy side. I stumbled upon a different option when I was searching for some new markers to have for the kids when they visit. Some of the ones that I have had dried out. It happens!

What I found was a set of dual tip marker pens. Oh my goodness these things are really cool! The name kind of tells it all. There are two tips to the pens. One end has a sort of brush type tip that creates a nice wide line and is great for filling in a large area. The other end offers a fine liner type of tip that is great for outlining and working on small areas. I have found them to be so versatile and I like the vibrant colors I get when I use them. 

I chose the set that has 60 colors in it. I must say there is a nice variety of choices with those sixty colors. Some are a little difficult to see much difference in but there must be something subtle that my old eyes aren't picking up on. I do like that the ink is acid-free and non-toxic. The colors dry quickly, too. I didn't have a problem with getting color on my fingers as I moved from space to space in my coloring adventure when I used them.

Whether these marker pens will dry out as quickly as the standard wide tipped markers do is yet to be seen. I haven't had these long enough to tell. The best test will be when one of the little ones uses them on their next visit. I think I might be a little better at making sure the cap is placed back on when the kids aren't always as diligent with that as I am. Anyway, I can hardly wait for them to come and try them out. I think they will like them as much as I do.

This might be something you could put in a stocking at Christmas or just have on hand if you have little ones who like to color or draw pictures when they visit you. I think they would also work well for people who are talented enough to do calligraphy. Having the brush end and the fine liner end would work very well for making pretty letters. Then again, you can take your own coloring up a notch by having some vibrant colors to use.

  1. Oh I think I need to add these to one of my wish lists.....I don't do too much coloring in the summer, but come fall and winter, it's nice to be able to be creative without going outside. Thanks for this recommendation Beverly Owens.

  2. Your review has convinced me that these markers are most likely the best available! I really do hate when marker ink smudges or gets on my hands. The fact the working project will dry faster is a huge factor in marker selection. Thanks for the great review and recommendation.

  3. I have a small set (8 colors) of marker pens that I use for my plastic canvas patterns. If the pattern is in B&W (which is most common), I like to enlarge it on my printer, then color in the sections. Makes the project go so much faster than trying to count stitches in black & white. This set of 60 colors looks perfect for coloring and for any other project that comes to mind. Nice, Bev.

  4. I would enjoy having the choice of dual tips. When I previously practiced Japanese ink painting, I was introduced to brush tip pens. They really do open up your creativity options. Thanks for introducing me to this product.

  7. There are so many poor quality brands of colored marker pens out there that I really appreciate your recommending one that's good quality. Glad you're enjoying them - no doubt your grandkids will have fun with them, too!
