Tombow recently launched three new limited edition Dual Brush Pen sets: Holiday, Desert Flora, and Citrus. I’ve gotten a few questions about how much color crossover there is with previous sets, so I took some time to swatch out all of the sets I have side by side to do a little comparison and I’m sharing the results here with you!

Tombow Dual Brush Pen Sets:

That is:

130 markers in total.

67 Colors.

54 Doubles.

9 Blending Markers.

I had included the Limited Edition Custom Pack in my swatch, but now I’m realizing that it was limited only to the Sept 2018 VIP subscription box and isn’t available anymore. The Custom Pack included 2 colors that weren’t in any other sets: 703, & 373, but the other 8 markers are found in other sets.

Tombow also used to make a Manga set, but it’s not for sale here anymore.

So if you want all of the colors, it’s definitely best to buy the 96 pack. If you buy all of the sets, you’ll have to purchase the other 29 colors individually.

But I’m not saying don’t buy the sets. The Tombow Dual Brush Pen Sets are fantastic because:

  • They’re affordable! and Tombow also has great sales that make them even cheaper.
  • They have great color schemes that are so helpful when working on projects.
  • They are good for beginners or anyone starting out that aren’t sure if you want all of the markers yet. (but trust me, you probably will.)

Let me know if you have anymore questions about the Dual Brush Pens! Hopefully I counted all of these colors right! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Hello – I’m interested in buying Tombow markers and I’m so glad I came across your site. Is the 108 marker set the best way to get all the colors? I know they just released more colors a few months ago. Not sure if those are in the 108 set. Thanks so much!

    • Hi Elizabeth! Yes, The 108 marker set will get you ALL of the colors! Previously it was a 96 pack, so when they added the new colors, it’s now the 108 pack. ๐Ÿ™‚ It also comes with the marker case/stand! I hope that helps!

      • Yes, it helped so much! I was about to by the individual packs, which I may do as I’m just starting out and want to make sure I like them. I wasn’t aware that there were many duplicates so I’m grateful for this post. Thanks again!
