I'll start with the Crayoligraphy Activity Set.
This set is sort of a sampling of their products. It comes with the practice papers and instruction sheets you see pictured, two gel pens, two brush tip (dual tip) markers, and 10 graphic tip (dual tip)markers. It's so-so for a beginner kit, but it should have more brush tip markers.
Also, I don't understand why the detail tips at the other end is a different color. I use the detail tips to touch up my lettering so making the detail tip a different color is not helpful. Maybe you can see what I mean in my sample pages:
Only one detail tip matches the graphic tip. I suppose you could add the different color detail to your lettering as a highlight for dimension. I haven't tried blending yet. I'm new to lettering.
By the way, I haven't seen the graphic tip before and I wasn't sure how to hold the marker. You can see by my feeble attempts above that it will take me some practice to get used to these markers. It is much easier to use the regular Crayola Washable markers than the graphic tips.
The only two brush tip markers in this set came in blue and black. They are very nice and almost the quality of Tombow brush tips. Again, the detail tips did not match.
The bleed is much the same of other markers on this quality (which isn't great) paper.
The Crayola markers are a little less expensive than Tombow, but for my money, I think I will stick with Tombow.
Next I tried out Crayola's glitter markers:
Now these are fun markers! They act more like a paint marker in that you may need to press down on the tip to get the marker to flow. The glitter is subtle and can be best seen holding the paper at an angle in the light. Definite bling factor.
They are easy to use, but not good for lettering. See my sample page above, left hand side.
The glitter markers bleed a wee bit more than the others.
Crayola's Metallic markers have a more subtle bling. They can be used for lettering with some practice. See my sample page, left hand side, second section.
I am absolutely delighted with the gel pens. Check this out:
They come in this really cute tin. Here is a better picture of the tin:
Am I right?
I was amazed at the quality of the pens. This set includes glitter gel pens and metallic gel pens.
This is what is inside the cute tin.
As you can see on my sample page, left hand side, third and fourth sections, that the colors vary from glitter to metallic. The glitter pen colors are brighter while the metallic pens are more subdued.
I like the gold of the metallic better than the glitter and the orange of the metallic looks more like copper. Both sets write smoothly.
Writing utensils are like books--you can never have "too many."
Keep on journaling!
