Hello everyone, It’s Katie here and today I’m sharing my top 3 Tombow products for artists.
Can I just start by saying how HARD it was to narrow this list down to only 3 products? As you may know, I’m an artist who likes to dabble in a little bit of everything- pencil drawing, watercolors, paints, mixed media, journals, etc, and I use Tombow products in all of my work.
I’ve narrowed the list down by pulling out my 3 favorite basic supplies to use in my drawings:
1. MONO Drawing Pencil Set
The MONO Drawing Pencils are my go-to pencils for all of my sketching. They’re professional quality pencils, high quality graphite, cedar wood, and I’ve never had a lead break on me yet with these pencils! They have a degree range from 6B to 4H.
I start every sketch and painting I do with these pencils.
See the MONO Drawing Pencils in action on this mixed media art journal page here.
2. MONO Drawing Pen
My favorite drawing marker! The MONO Drawing Pens come in a 3-pack with 3 different sized tips: 01, 03, and 05. They’re a water based pigment ink that dries instantly, so no smudges! The 01 tip is my favorite for doing fine detail work like faces.
I use these markers in my art journal a lot too. Read my review here.
3. MONO Black Eraser
My process for sketching is this: Start off with the MONO Drawing Pencils, go over the lines with the MONO Drawing Pens, and then erase the pencil lines using the MONO Eraser.
Tombow has a fantastic product range of erasers, but I have to say that my favorite is the black. Why? For the simple reason that it never looks dirty. Tombow’s white erasers work wonderfully as well, but white has a tendency to pick up the lead and look dirty after you’ve erased, but you’ll never see that on the MONO Black Eraser!
I could have added many more products to this list. If you’re holiday shopping for your favorite artist, I think any of these would make a great gift.
What are your favorites?
