This is a set of ten SpotPen Retouching Pens from OmegaBrandees. They are designed for spotting resin-coated or fiber-based black and white photographs. Each brush-tip pen contains its own shade of photographic retouching dye ranging from the lightest shades of gray to the blackest black. The pen tips are made of high-quality nylon fiber that gives them a fine brush point capability of a 000 sable brush. The retouching dye penetrates the emulsion without leaving surface residue. For organization and portability, SpotPens are packaged in a clear, resealable vinyl pouch.

    I just started spotting my prints, and I have to say that these spot pens have greatly improved the look of my work. Just match the tone of the area you are going to work on with the color on the pen and start eliminating imperfections; that's it. Very ease to use and it's unnoticeable after it dries. Great product!

    Works fine if used properly

    Make sure to test on scrap.
    Matches most hues.
    Can't go from darker to lighter. Need a 'bleach' pen.

      Comments about SpotPen Retouching Pen Set for B&W (Set of 10):

      I've always used a small brush and spotting fluid before, so was a bit skeptical of how these would work. But they are great, work well on prints with various kinds of spotting needs. Different shades make it easy to match the tone and paper.

        Comments about SpotPen Retouching Pen Set for B&W (Set of 10):

        These are really really great touch-up tools. You just have to use them smartly. I like to make a mark and then dab it away with my finger, and repeat that process. But I've improved the look of my work a lot more, and this way you don't have to keep wasting paper when you continually reprint after trying to get the dust off of your negatives. The only thing is that they have a different luster than the paper, so when you look at it at a certain angle, you can see where it's been touched up. But straight on, especially from a distance, it looks great.

                  These pens are great for retouching dust specks on RC black and white prints. The range of shades is good. Larger spots, lines or threads don't cover too well. Also can be used to increase dark highlights. Cold Tone good for Ilford multigrade paper.

                  For retouching BW prints.
                  Very quick and clean alternative to the liquid solution of retouching.
                  There appears to be plenty of toned pens to accomodate most prints.

                            You do have to make sure your students are paying attention to the cold or warm tone of their paper as to which pens they use.

                                  I am a college student and needed a simple way to do spot retouching, I first tried Touchrite but it had too much of a purple tone and would not match the prints. These also are easier to handle than a 000 brush. I also purchased the warm tone pack as well but don't notice much of a difference between the two packs.

                                  Comments about SpotPen Retouching Pen Set for B&W (Set of 10):

                                  As a devoted black and white photographer who mostly prints on fiber based papers, the Spot Pen Set does the spotting job. Easy to use and the tones really match the zone values I achieve in the prints.

                                  The best thing since the original Kodak spotting swatches. These SpotPens will be a mandatory purchase for my freshmen photography majors!

                                        Doesn't get the blackest blacks or even dark greys without multiple applications. Spotting with ink and a brush may just be as quick, though these ARE mess free and they do work great for lighter prints.

                                          Bye bye liquid touch up stuff!!!

                                          Really usefull, not messy at all and effective.

                                          This is the most simple way to get rid of dust spots on prints, it is not messy and the result is satisfying.

                                          Be carefull: touch up is more evient on glossy finish!
