Faber Castell Pitt Pens has released new nibs
What is a Fude Nib? Meet the Pitt Artist Pen’s Newest Nibs
The Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pen collection is known for its versatility and wide variety of nibs, making it a go-to for artists and crafters of all interests. Taking the versatility of the popular artist pens a step further, Pitt Artist Pens are now available in two new nib sizes: fude medium and fude hard.
What is a fude nib?
The word “fude” comes from the Japanese term meaning “brush.” The Pitt Artist Pen fude nibs earn their name from their resemblance to brush nibs, although they are different. With a shorter nib design, fude nibs allow for a more stable design process compared to brush nibs, with durability that provides a constant flow of India ink.
Fude nibs allow for razor-sharp lines, avoiding line imperfections. Beginners will enjoy using the new nibs as they are flexible, durable, and easy to control. Both fude nibs are suited for lettering, sketching notes, bullet journaling, and more. We do not recommend using a fude nib for quick sketches as the ink flow will break off in between lines.

Golden Acrylic in Heavy Body, 2oz tubes are now in flourescent colors.
The first acrylic colors offered by GOLDEN, Heavy Body paints are known for their exceptionally smooth, buttery consistency. The Heavy Body palette includes the largest assortment of unique pure pigments in a 100% acrylic emulsion available to professional artists. These colors offer excellent permanency and lightfastness. There are no fillers, extenders, opacifiers, toners, or dyes added.
NEW GOLDEN Fluid Acrylic Color Sets
Fluids are created by loading an acrylic polymer binder with concentrated levels of quality pigments for a wide selection of permanent and light-fast colors. No fillers or extenders are added to achieve the desired consistency, nor is the fluid quality achieved with additional water. GOLDEN Fluid Acrylics have the same pigment load as the Heavy Body Acrylics, but in a viscosity similar to heavy cream. Fluids allow for smooth flowing applications while retaining color intensity, tinting strength, film integrity, and adhesion.
If you have been trying to email us or receive an email from us recently we need to apologize for our email services provided by mediatemple. Mediatemple was purchased by GoDaddy. During the transfer to GoDaddy, the certification of our email was disorganized by GoDaddy. As more and more large corporations buy up the smaller businesses, the more the large corporations have control of what you see and read. If a smaller business is not paying attention, they can be censored very easy. For example as the emailing server needs to be certified by Big Tech. GoDaddy would not certify the DNS report without the owner contacting them to say, “Yes, I want my emails to be received by Google, Yahoo, AOL…..etc……etc.” For any inconvenience, we apologize. If you are having such a problem, it is best to contact the business who may be having such concerns. – Keith Kendall, owner & manager of the Art Store, LLC
