I am working on a pen and ink project where I would normally take out my old rapidographs. Because
I don't want the hassle of cleaning them (such laziness), I am now eyeing the unused Faber-Castell Pitt pens that are in my drawer.
Do they work pretty much like a rapidograph (single line weight per pen) or do those kind of pens get mushed
upon use? The ink seems as black as a rapidograph when I used it on the denril paper I usually use for pen
and ink. Has anyone used them for pen and ink and what is your opinion of these "modern" pens versus the rapidographs.
Is there a brand that most folks prefer?
Thanks for any feedback or insight you might have. I think it was touched upon a little in the India ink posts, so I hope
I am not being redundant!
