So you’re on the hunt for affordable alcohol markers for Interior Design school, but don’t want to ditch out on quality? I totally get you. Being a college student means being frugal. So I’m here to help you with a review on the Arteza Everblend Markers Portrait Set. Let me make it known this is not sponsored, I paid for these markers with my own money. However, even if it was sponsored I would still give you the straight-up truth about the product. Good or bad.
I will break up the review in to two categories. Pros and cons, pretty simple to understand. So without further ado lets get into the review.
Pros for the Arteza Everblend Markers Portrait Set
Let’s get on with the good stuff.
Let’s just say the price is pretty good. For 36.99 you get 36 markers. That’s about $1.02 a marker compared to $5 a marker for the King Copic markers. Honestly can’t get any better than that.
The Color Range
As I was swatching the markers, I couldn’t help but get super excited with the tones of the colors. Most of the colors are muted which makes for a great foundation for your rendering your interiors.
The blending of these markers are off the chain. You will definitely get a good gradient effect on these babies. Let me show you.
The Ergonomics of the Marker
The design of the Arteza Everblend marker is simple but effective. The grip and ease are very satisfying in my hand. Some markers have an odd girth or shape to them. They are in a triangular shape which also helps with them not rolling off the table. The pictures of the chisel and fine tip help with know which end is which. Also what helps is that there is a color band on the fine tip side. These are pretty simple and straight forward
Cons of the Arteza Everblend Markers
Yup what sucks is that they don’t have refills for the markers. Arteza does sell a three marker pack of the same color, but that’s it. Not good for wasted plastic.
No Brush Tip
Honestly this is not a make or break for me, but it would be nice to have a brush tip instead of the fine tip. If you have ever used a brush tip marker you would know what I’m talking about. The ease of filling in a large space and the way it glides. You just cant get enough of the brush.
Top Swatch Compared to Actual Swatch
This may not be a big deal, but some of the top swatches don’t really match the actual swatch of the marker. This can be a little bit of a problem if you’re just going based on the top. Thats why it’s important to get make your own swatch guide.
If you have done any interior sketching or have taken a class on it then you know that greys are a high demand color in the field. Arteza does sell a 36 grey set for $32.99. That’s a great deal. Haven’t tried them yet, but you can be sure that they are in my shopping cart as I type. Review coming soon.
No Case Included
Now this is not a make or break deal in my opinion, but the set does not come with a case. However they do sell a case separately and the 120 set comes with the case if you if you find that you like the markers and want to buy the 120 set.
