Boarding the plane tomorrow nite at 11:21. Arriving in France at Charles de Gaulle at 1:30 pm!! Oh my it’s almost here.
I added to the original 6 yesterday at Binders at Ponce Market where they are on sale for $4.79 each. I still need to go by and buy a yellow one. How do you watercolor without yellow?!
The six grew to 14!! These markers are loaded with color and they are lightfast unlike my tombows which evidently fade when they are in a closed sketchbook!!😢 I really liked the Tombows but there is a lot more pigment in these WN watercolor markers.
They also have two tips. A fine point and a brush tip.
Another thing that I like about them is that the color can be dry and you can go back and blend it out later. When I did these samples I first drew all the squares then I wrote all the names and THEN I added water to show the range of the colors.
They really are very intense. JUICY even. I know they will be great fun to color some of my people accordion strip drawings.
I thought u might like to see what I have colored wit them so far.
She was done with the markers too augmented with my friend Toms watercolor palette.
He was done completely with the watercolor markers. I really like all the colors I got from just the first six. A lot of fun. Try a set. There are 36 colors to choose from. They may be the best thing since Crayola markers!
Here is a link to Winsor newtons page where there are a couple of videos about themhttp://www.winsornewton.com/na/discover/articles-and-inspiration/introducing-water-colour-markers-us
I bet there are some on YouTube. If I find any I will share them with u.
