ACURIT Technical Pens Suck!

I am a FRAKTUR folk artist and I recently opened up some new ACURIT brand technical pens made in China for my decorative folk art.  As I painted over my pen work to create a colorful border and fill in the Fraktur lettering the black ik RAN into my acrylic ink pigments! I am so damn disgusted I am throwing the new pens right in the garbage! I opened up two “new” MICRON pens made in Japan (The ones I usually use) and I painted over some ink on a test piece and it didn’t run Thank God!  I had bought the never used MICRON pens 1.5 years ago and they were fine! I painted over the yellow border 3 times to cover up the black discolored inks. I still need to work on the lettering! See how they run…?  (Lady Madonna..children at your feet…  (I just had to sing that lyric.. lol! That sentence makes me think  of the song.. lol)Emma
