Lynn asks "What is a brush pen?"
It's a pen whose tip is shaped like a paint brush; when you press harder, you make a thicker line, softer and you get a very fine line.
The ones I bought a few days ago are made by Faber-Castell. I bought the Manga Set, which includes a fine tip and a medium tip in black, and then three warm gray brush tips and three cool gray brush tips, all in permanent, waterproof, pigment ink. You can order these from Amazon--and I've even put a link in the sidebar (isn't technology amazing?) If you want to, you can paint over these with acrylics--they won't smear. And they won't 'tack-up' the acrylics if you use the pens over the paint.
