My teacher in school told me I should work on bigger scale drawings. He suggested I got a big black marker and this Edding 800 was the biggest marker I could find.
Sure this marker is noet very compact, but it would not have been possible to make this marker much smaller anyway. The tip of this marker is 1 cm already (which is pretty big for drawing materials). I automatically adjust myself to drawing on large scale format with this marker, even though I am used at drawing small things.
The Edding 800 marker covers very well and can be used on different surfaces. I tried it on several kinds of drawing paper, pattern paper and wood. It did not cover well on oil pastels, but who uses marker over oil pastels? (OK I do, but I do crazy things for school)
I was not so pleased that this marker went empty quite fast, but it takes much ink to make such broad lines.
In my local office store they did not have any refills for this marker unfortunately. This weekend I went to a bigger city and there they did have them so that was great. I also got a different color of this marker (blue).
In the end I am quite glad with this marker. I also tried refilling and that went fine. I just needed a few drops to use the marker again.
Below are some artworks in which I used this marker:
I like to use this marker to put some extra accents in the work. The black broad lines are very dominant in an image so you always have to think twice when you put some lines down.
