First of all these are a 'marker system', which sounds a bit odd I know, but there's no way you can class these as a just bunch of coloured felt tips. These pens were created with crafters in mind, and with practice can produce some stunning, professional looking results. The tones are vast- 168 in total- and none are duplicates. Such a large range of shades means you can blend colours in a light to dark gradient seamlessly- more about that later. The coding system of the pens is a little bewildering to start with, but once you understand the way it works it's actually a very helpful and practical way to sort the different tones into families.
The letters on each shade indicate the family they belong to, eg. PP stands for Pale Pink. The number which follows specifies the intensity of colour: 1 being lightest, through to 11 which is the darkest shade.
Here's where it can get confusing: colour families are not all found in the same pack of markers. For example, OR1 is in the 'Yellows' pack, whereas OR2 & OR3 are found in the 'Brights' pack. Should Spectrum Noir have divided them more simply into pinks, reds, blues, or have they created more categories so you have to buy more sets to get the full range of each colour? I don't know.
Physically, the pens themselves have been through some changes over the years.Read more ›
By the way the first picture on here shows you the old version of the pens but I'm pleased to say that you actually get the newest version :-)
