Hello crafty friends!
I thought I'd pop in today and show you my favorite writing/drawing/doodling tool, the Copic SP Multiliner. No doubt you have seen Copic Multiliners and probably even have some of them yourself. They come in lots of sizes, colors, and even two styles. There's a disposable pen, and the one I'm talking about today, called the SP Multiliner.
SP Multiliner pens are pigment-based, and provide the highest quality for all your inking needs. Ink cartridges and replacement nibs are available so you never need to throw these durable aluminum bodied pens away. ...and, oh, my friends, they feel SO GOOD in your hands! I'm telling you, when you hold a pen that feels as good as the Copic SP Multiliner, you can do amazing things with it. :) I'm a bit geeky when it comes to my pens. They just have to feel right, and these really really do!
My absolute, hands-down favorite feature of these pens is the way you refill them. If you've ever refilled a Copic Marker, you know that there's some dripping ink involved. Not so with the SP Multiliner! The refill is a simple cartridge!
The cartridge comes in "A" or "B" size, which is based on the size of the nib in your pen. The smaller nibs use size A, and the larger nibs, which includes a beautiful brush nib, use size B.
I needed to change the cartridge in my 0.3 SP Multiliner; so I used a size B Ink Cartridge.
As you can see, the cartridge is a single piece. All I needed to do is pull off the clear plastic cap on the cartridge, and press it into the empty pen (after removing the old cartridge) until the setting is complete. The clear cap can simply be thrown away.
One little tip about removing the cartridge from the pen... You will want to get yourself a Multiliner SP Nib Changer.
It's a super inexpensive and very handy little tool that works for changing both the ink cartridge as well as the nib.
The small end shown on the left in the above diagram is for removing nibs. The large end shown on the right in the above diagram is for removing ink catridges. It works like a charm, I tell ya!
Once I changed my nib out, I could quickly get back to work on the illuminated hand lettering project that I'm currently working on. Here's a peek at my progress so far:
It is, of course, a "W" for my precious granddaughter, Winslow Elizabeth. The bottom copy shown in the upper left of the photo is a pencil sketch, and the bottom right image shows the progress I'm making on it with my 0.3 Copic SP Multiliner. I used some X-Press It Transfer Paper to transfer the design over onto X-Press It Blending Card, because you KNOW I'm going to color that with my Copic Markers when I'm done! That, my friends, is a must!
I hope that I've educated you a little bit today, and that you'll try the Copic SP Multliners, Ink Cartridges, & SP Nib Changer for yourself! They are life changing products, friends...life changing.
Have yourself a beautiful day! Thanks a million for visiting with me today!
