I bought 3 sets of the Brush Markers one of them being this set. The colors are rich and beautiful. This was my first time using these brush markers from Altenew.
I think and am hoping I just got a defective set with the Winter Woodland set. As I was painting my card using the no line technique, I had problems especially with the Ruby Red and Rouge brushes. The colors just came out in huge blobs. The first one happened with the Ruby Red at the very end of my card. I had a huge red blob and there was nothing I could do to save my piece. I started over by putting the ink on a plate, and using my paint brush on my new card. What I saw later was a thin black thing floating in the colors in the tubes of 3 colors in this set. I'm going to check all the brushes in all sets. I am going to send pics to Altenew hoping they can see what I see. ( I'm will need help on learning how to transfer my pics to my tablet. 🤔) My husband thinks that small black piece, that's floating, lets the ink to flow at slower rate as it goes through the barrel to the brush, broke off. (I'm sorry if this sounds confusing)
I DID NOT use excessive pressure, or squeeze to hard, on any of the pens. I've been a experienced card maker for many yrs. I just can't afford wasting my products, especially for $40 for something I can't refill or use again, but these are really beautiful colors. Before my card was ruined I really liked them. I'm just really frustrated at this point.
I will come back and add another review if this set is defective.
I do love all my other Altenew products and never once had a complaint, until now.
Thanks for taking the time to bring this to our attention.

I love almost everything from Altenew and their watercolor brush markers are not any different. It’s great to be able to coordinate with the ink pads, markers, and papers that match one another and the quality is excellent. This was my first set of the brush markers and I’m planning to purchase more. You should also if you don’t have them already!
What a beautiful set of colors; I’ve used them all year for projects other than Winter. They are so intense I can use my water brushes to spread the colors & make blending a breeze!
As with the other sets I have, I love using these brush markers. The colors are rich with pigment.
Love these brush markers - just do not squeeze them too hard :)
