  • Here is a look inside my mindmapping kit at the materials I use: Storage: Clear art boxes, wooden paint boxes & racks, clear video cases Stencils: Circles, Ovals, Shapes, Mathematical & Scientific, Collection of plastic lids and self-made items Paints: Acrylic paints, acrylic inks, watercolours Pencils: Staedtler Noris 122-HB plus erasers and pencil end erasers Pitt Pastel Pencils – such as grey and black for shading Derwent Inktense Watercolour Pencils Colour Pens: Staedtler Lumocolor Permanent Dry Safe – Fine Staedtler Lumocolor Duo Permanent – Medium and Fine Staedtler Lumocolor Whiteboard Pens - Medium Sharpie Twin tip Permanent markers – Fine/Ultra Fine Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens – Shades of Grey Brush tip - Bold Stabilo Point 88 Fine Colouring Pens: Staedtler Triplus Fineliners 0.3mm Staedtler Triplus Color Fibre-tips 1.0mm Black ink pens: Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens - Medium and Bold Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pen Big Brush – Bold Pentel Maxiflo Permanent Marker – Fine Staedtler Pigment Liners 0.1 through to 0.8 (Most used 0.2) If you wish to try these pens start small and see which ones you prefer. I gathered this collection slowly starting with single items. If you find a pen or pencil you like it makes sense to purchase in packs where possible to reduce costs, although check prices – sometimes individual purchases are no dearer. Overall my favourite ink pen is the Staedtler Pigment Liner. A brilliant all-rounder; indelible, waterproof on paper, lightfast, permanent and an 18 Hour cap off feature! (Personally, if the cap’s off I write or draw!) There are many other brilliant products on the market; experiment and discover what suits you best.
