Comments regarding archival pens


Videos on You Tube, the seven part Fairy Tales Live Restoration. The “second” portion of Part 1 has a section talking about archival pens. At approximately 12:05 into that video the subject of specifics regarding “archival pens” comes up. It sounds like you referred to Prismacolor and Amazon shows a 7 pen set of black which are reasonably priced and indeed include the two pen tips mentioned.

While I can see the value of such items:

  1. Do you find that you use those very often?

  2. Do you also have archival pens for various colors?

    3. Some pens do not explicitly use the expression “archival pen” but do specify “archival ink”, safe to assume they are similar?

Thank you for your comments.

I use these for lots of touch up situations. Archival ink is the same thing. I do have some other colors. I like to use the prismacolor pens to tint Japanese tissues to match for corner repairs and things like that.
