Shape the nibs to your purpose
Press the pump for a stronger flow
Easy to clean - flush and brush
Drawing and lettering with our Clear Cut nibs is a new experience. The nibs are smooth and skate across the paper. You can lay down a bead of color that reminds you what color is all about. You can get a wide variation of line by altering the pressure of your hand as well as shaping the tip of the nib.
For calligraphers who have been around for awhile, these used to be called the Braun Embouchure nib. We have brought them back to life and improved their quality and performance.
Press the pump when you want a stronger flow. You get what you press, from a drop to a gush. This can be very useful when working with thicker inks and paints.
Pick the thickness of your media
Thin media has a narrow bore designed for India ink, calligraphic inks, and acrylic paints that flow easily
Medium media has a medium bore designed for thicker inks and paints that flow but not as easily
Thick media has a wide bore designed for the thickest inks and paints that need encouragement to flow
These descriptions are rules of thumb. You could as well call them narrow bore, medium bore, and large bore. The thicker your ink and paint, the larger the bore you need in the pen. That stack of liquid in the pen determines the flow. The thicker the media, the slower the flow.
About Clear Cut Nibs
Clear Cut Nibs are clear flexible nibs you can fashion to your purpose. You can twist and bend them while working with the pen to get different effects. You can also shape the end to give you different types of drawing lines. They are not plastic nibs. They are made from 100% recyclable material.
Every pen comes with a three nib sticks, one in the pen and two on a card.
