After watching a video of Julia Alterman using the Stabilo markers, I rememberd I had a couple of these markers laying around my craft room and had no idea that these were watercolor! I quickly made a test with mine and when I saw that the color blends with water, I decided to buy the set of 30 and this set has plenty of shades for each color so I am glad I decided to get this one. For me it is more than enough:)
I did spent a bit of time trying to blend them as I wanted, but I’m sure that with more practice I can get them to work so nicely. One thing that I noticed is that it is best if you go in with water right after applying the color, don’t let it sit too much on the paper, otherwise you can get those nasty lines that I believe we all try to avoid:) And another good thing about these markers is that you can go in and apply color directly with your marker even if your paper is still wet! They also blend nicely with eachother and you can use them as regular markers if you don’t want to add water, the colors are very beautiful & intense.So here is a card that I colored using these markers, it was one first experiment playing with some of the colors and must say that I really enjoyed using them.
In the end the effect is pretty much like a regular marker coloring, but that’s just me that I have to get rid of the lines and strokes and always try to have a regular blend. I’m not too loose on that:)
