I'm looking for a pen that is not too dark/prominent (something that resembles pencil on matt paper?) and would work on lustre photo paper. I appreciate that most of the members here are based in the US but if it's a popular brand I might be able to source it in UK too. TIA.
Regards,

Des

Maybe Burgandy or Sepia colors would work? https://www.dickblick.com/products/sakura-pigma-micron-pn-pens/

Not sure about the colours, but perhaps I could try other makes of pigment pen as I noticed some do come in various shades of grey?

Why not just use a pencil made for writing on glass? I believe pencil is considered archival.

Didn't even realise that there was such a thing! Will try and search for one online. Thanks.
