Tombow Fudenosuke Color Review

  1. I was so excited about the color (!) aspect of these that I didn’t even realize they were the hard tipped fudenosuke pens. What a disappointment they were to me as the thin lines were not like cutting warm butter and made a scratching sound and sensation.

      Sorry to hear they weren’t quite what you were looking for Lyzz. Hopefully you find something else that works well for you.

  2. Thankś for great review. I am wondering How they react with water. = water resistant

    1. Hey Tereza! The pens have water-based ink, so I wouldn’t suggest putting water on your work. However, if the ink has been dry for a while, it stands up to water a bit better than I expected. I hope that helps!

      1. Yes! Absolutely. I don’t want to try water. But I am looking for some Color Brush pen like fudenosuke hard Brush. I would write with it in travel/family journal. So if it manage some accident or to stay a little bit readible.
        If you have another tip I will be glad.
        Thanks a lot

  3. I’m SO keen for these pens it is ridiculous! At the moment though, I agree with you Shelby – I need more colours.
    I think I’ll hold out on buying a pack until more pastels are released :3
    Thanks for a lovely review~

      I’m so happy that they’ve finally given us some colors to work with, now to just wait for more of them!

  4. Thank you for another great review. I’m with you on the colors. I’d like to see pastels, galaxy as well. I wouldn’t mind jewel tones either. Maybe we just have to be patient.

    Thanks again

  5. So excited to try these, Shelby. I LOVE my black ones for faux calligraphy. I clicked on your link and as a first-time buyer got a 15% discount code. Thanks for the review!

  6. I wish someone would come out with a left handed version of the hand lettering instructions. Some of the instructions don’t work with left handedness, especially in slanting the writing and some of the down strokes are upstrokes if you’re left-handed. Not something I thought about until I started trying this myself. They look pretty, but I am still too much of a novice for more supplies – yet.

    1. Hey there, Shawna! I imagine it’s quite frustrating to be a leftie in the lettering community. I wish I could help directly, but being right-handed, my advice for a leftie would only be a guess! However, you might like @honeydarko on Instagram. The account features an amazing left-handed lettering artist, and there are lots of videos so you can watch her work. I hope that helps you out!

  7. Just wondering, since the ink is water-based, does that mean that getting the page wet after writing will obliterate the writing? Does it mean it’s washable if you (heaven forfend!) get it on your clothes?

    By the way, I love your blog – it’s one of just three BuJo blogs I follow. And of course, you get credit for getting me to buy my Tombow Dual Brush pens!

    1. Thanks so much, Jenny! I’m so glad you’re on the Tombow wagon ? The Fudenosuke colors have water-based ink, so they aren’t permanent. If you apply water shortly after writing, you will swipe the color around and end up ruining your lines. However, I just used a wet watercolor brush on some lines I put down two weeks ago and nothing came up. I’m sure if you keep working it, you will pull up color, but you’ll probably be fine with an accidental splash of water. I’m afraid I’m not sure how they do on clothes, but since they’re water-based ink, I imagine they’d come off in the wash with soap. I hope that helps!
