However when it comes to the coloured versions it is a slightly different story. The Derwent Graphik Coloured Line Markers only seem to come in size 0.5, which is a little large for me apart from blocking in. I don't know if the Micron Coloured pens come in smaller sizes but I only have the 0.5 size for these too. For colouring I prefer the Micron pens. The Derwent coloured pens has very gluppy ink which comes out in globules at times and at other times runs dry. It has a ball bearing in it and you have to shake it to get it going again, or press the tip and then a whole load of ink comes out:-( There are twenty colour choices in the range and have marvellous names for the colours, Billy for one of the blues, Rain for the purple, and Tickled for - yes you guessed it - the Pink lol.
So overall if I had to choose between them I would choose the Derwent Pens as they are so much more comfortable and I use the black and sepia ones more frequently than the coloured pens.
P is the letter of the week for SuzyMosh's New To Me Challenge. There is a plethora of P tangles to choose from, 3 pages on Tanglepatterns.com in fact! I have already used most of the official Zentangle® P patterns, the old favourites like Pokeroot/leaf, Purk, Pendrills, Pepper etc. All had to be left behind but still there were plenty of others to choose from. I chose just three, all of which are new to me, Paizol, Podz and Pippin. I shall use all of them again, but I didn't get Pippin quite right. I started with each pippin in a different place and then filled in, but i now realise it needed to begin in one place and circle outwards. I will know next time. This tile is a bit 'Meh', I would do it again but I must get on with other things today:-)
