An introduction to the Spectrum Noir Classiques

Crafter's Companion – 23/09/19

We’ve got one for the Spectrum Noir lovers today. If you were a fan of our original Spectrum Noir Markers, you’re going to be totally head over heels for the brand new Classique Markers! With sleek packaging, Japanese quality nibs and smooth, blendable colours, this is a range that demands the limelight.

As these are a new launch for the brand, we thought we’d dedicate a whole post to them, giving you a bit of an introduction and showing the incredible effects that can be achieved. Take a look, see what you think and get inspired by this fabulous range!

With these markers, you still get the same 216 shades that you know and love, however, they have been re-formulated by our brilliant in-house team to bring you even more vibrancy and payoff. The lids of the pens also feature fully matched caps to help you decide the specific colour that you’d like to use.

You’ll find that these markers are particularly comfortable to grip whilst you are colouring, which is all down to the enhanced barrel and cap design . In sleek black plastic, with coloured lids that match the shade, these markers feel luxurious and refined.

Japanese nibs are renowned for their durability and smooth performance, so each of the markers in this range has been dual-end equipped. At one end, you’ll find a premium bullet tip for finer details, and at the other, a premium chisel tip for bolder swipes of colour, giving you the potential to experiment and discover a whole world of colouring.

Thanks to these improved nibs and the reformulation of the alcohol dye ink, you’ll find that your colouring is completely seamless and smooth. With translucent shades that can be built up for full vibrancy and layered together for blended effects, you can create depth and dimension with total ease.

To extend the life of your Classique Markers, pair them up with the Alcohol Re-Inkers, which will help you to re-fill your pens with ease. Gone are the days of having to throw out your markers once it has dried up – simply re-fill and you’re ready to go. This is a concept that is great for the environment and your bank balance!

Whether you’re an art enthusiast or love colouring as a hobby, collect the whole of the Classiques range and see how it can transform your artwork. If you’d like more information about these fantastic new pens, please check out our Getting To Know post.
