The brush end is like any other brush pen end in size or shape and is replaceable which is great. The marker end though is not a fine liner, it's huge and thick and will not get in small spaces or do details in adult coloring books.
The blending/shading aspect is nice, but unpredictable and not for small shapes or details. The lightening of the original color is determined by how long the blender or a color top is in contact with the nib. A second will change the whole color. This might be hard to describe, but say you want a green to blue gradient to fill in a petal of a flower design that is one inch long and half an inch wide. There is no way to tell how long to have the two colors touch to achieve this. With other pen types you can color one end of that petal green and the other end blue and then merge them in the middle. Not so with these pens. I'm attaching a photo from the instructions showing you what various time amounts will give you and you can see that to get blends you'd need to be working on large, open spaces, not small detailed spaces as in all of my coloring books. Look at all the photo's other reviewers have posted in their reviews of the primary pack and you'll notice very little blending or shading in small areas, it's only in large spaces.
You also cannot go back over what you have done. If you miss a little spot three strokes back, you can't go back and fill it in as you are now in another shade/color. Not only that, but if you're trying to fill in a one inch design with that blend and you hit the final color at a half inch instead, there is no way to go back and fix that. In some of the other reviewers photos of their finished pages on the primary pack page, you can see a distinct line rather than a smooth gradient where it appears they have gone back and then ruined their gradient.
You also must color in one direction and one direction only. Your blend will go from light to dark, so you can't go over what you've done or color in another direction or in circles or such. You must color in a straight direction.
Yes, they bleed through every book I tried them in, so there is no way to use them in a coloring book that has images on both sides.
Another thing I found extremely annoying was the amount of pieces/caps you have to deal with. Again, this might be hard to explain. If you want a blue to purple blend you'll end up dealing with six loose things/caps. The first thing you do is remove the top blender/color. Then you have to remove the cap over the tip you want to use....so you're now holding three things, the blender tube, the pen itself and the cap from the end you plan on using. Now, get the color you want to blend with and repeat....now you've got six things laying in front of you. I color in bed so caps go in my lap which really mean they roll off me onto the bed and then if a cat moves they're on the floor.
And my last irritation was how all the above slows you down. I color detailed images which take a minimum of five hours, some up towards ten hours, to color, blend, shade and highlight. With these pens, all that uncapping and recapping, plus having to hold two nibs together and count out seconds, is an incredible waste of time....and as my choice in coloring books is small intricate designs, you have to do that over and over and over again for even the smallest of spaces.
