They provide a permanent, fine ink line. Drawback: One never knows exactly when the ink will run out. A spare pen is a good idea. INK For mixed-media work, choose an ink that is lightfast, compatible with the pen you are using and brushproof to withstand the overlay application of wet washes without bleeding. Permanent inks are not necessarily brush-proof and must be tested. For a very brushproof black India ink, I recommend Koh-I-Noor's Universal Black India 3080. For a lightfast, brushproof colored ink, I use FW Acrylic Artist's Ink (transparent) or archival-quality colored inks by Koh-I-Noor.
