63 Karin Brushmarker Pro Markers

One of my followers Danielle told me about Karin markers were incredible! And now I know they seriously are. I have been trying to do more lettering this year and knew I needed to try these out. I had struggled lettering with Tombow markers and it was difficult. Lettering with the Karin markers was much easier. They are a GREAT lettering marker for beginners.

Karin markers are a dye-based marker and the neon colors are a pigment based. Pigment molecules are much larger than dye based molecules and need to be shaken to make sure the pigment is evenly spread. Pigment has the advantage of being more lightfast than dye. Each marker contains ml of dye and have a durable flexible nylon tip. They are made in Poland.

Karin sent me these markers in exchange for an honest review. This blog post contains affiliate links.


The markers come in a box that has a spot for each of the markers. The markers were a little hard to pull out, but that is probably because it has not been used much. It is recommended to store these vertical.

Color Information
The colors come with a name and a number. There are 3 blenders in the set which is super nice to never run out of a blender. The markers are individually labeled and have barcodes on each. The only thing that is a concern is they do not have an AP label. They are new to the US market. Hopefully in a couple years this will get remedied. This is the symbol that the ACMI association has tested and labeled the markers non toxic. It does not have it so there is no way to know.

The markers had some amazing laydown properties. I just did the swatch chart in the order they were in on the box. I made it to practice filling in an area akin to coloring and a place to practice lettering strokes. The colors filled in very nicely all except the grays, they were a little streaky. Click here to get this swatch chart.

I immediately pulled these out and practiced with them. I think they will be my marker of choice to practice lettering! I practiced my name, blending, all the lettering strokes, and all the letters. Practice makes perfect right?


This technique was accomplished by using a water brush. I wrote on a plastic surface, applied water with the brush and then painted it on the paper. I used a fine liner to write the word love.


Here is lettering I practiced for Earth Day coming up. To get a good blend I pulled the neighboring color down a little bit when I was lettering. The down strokes are nice and wide, but I was also able to achieve a small upstroke.


I used the blender to make this watercolor. I colored the marker on a plastic surface. Then I painted the flower.
