About The New Winsor & Newton Pigment Marker
Pigment Markers are made with Winsor & Newton professional fine art pigments, delivering an intense colour range that is truly lightfast for up to 100 years, with maximum blending possibilities just like paint. They last 25% longer than other markers as the pigment particles sit on the paper surface rather than bleeding through.
Each marker has a unique ergonomic design, twin-tipped for versatility with broad chisel & fine point nibs. There are 118 vibrant colours in the range, including 2 blenders – a Colourless Blender and a first-of-its-kind White Blender. The White Blender is the perfect tool for creating infinite shades and for highlighting areas, adding white opacity to any colour – even black!
You can also use the specially-formulated Pigment Marker Paper from Winsor & Newton, which allows you to blend with ease and with little to no feathering or bleed. Its unique coating also slows drying time with minimal absorption.
