Professional quality reed pens designed by figure artist Bill Buchman!
The reed dip pen is one of the most ancient writing and drawing instruments in the world. It is a dip pen made of bamboo that yields an emotive line of great variety and power. The pens hold a surprising amount of ink and flow quite smoothly on the paper. Many famous and expressive drawings by Picasso, Van Gogh, and Matisse were done with reed pens and these type of pens have always been popular with professional illustrators and designers
The Bill Buchman ZEN Pens are different from the standard reed pens generally available in that they are truly a professional quality art instrument! They come in three sizes with three points that deliver three distinct line thicknesses. The traditional design has been updated by Bill and these are manufactured to a high standard in China. Although these dip pens are made to be used primarily with Sumi ink, India ink, and various kinds of calligraphy inks, they can in fact be used with any fluid media. This includes watercolors, gouache, liquid acrylic, acrylic gouache, liquid watercolors, and even oil paints and other viscous paints for a great variety of effects. Bring the expressive strokes of this traditional pen style to your own drawings with Bill Buchman Bamboo ZEN Pens!
