Talens | Pantone Markers: First Impressions with Vic Hollins
Opus Resource Library

In this video, artist and Talens Ambassador, Vic Hollins unboxes the new Talens | Pantone Markers, sharing her first impressions while demonstrating various activities such as swatching, creating colour wheels, experimenting with basic techniques for beginners, and exploring different drawing styles. 

The markers stand out for their utilization of the Pantone Matching System (PMS), a colour standardization system facilitating precise colour matching and identification. An illustrative scenario involves an interior designer needing a specific paint colour for a client, where these markers enable the designer to sketch with the exact colour required.
