Water based marker tutorial, 3 ways to watercolor using Tombow Dual Brush pens


Today’s video is a watercolor markers
tutorial I’ll be showing you three different techniques in which I use the
same set of markers to create these beautiful watercolor florals so let’s
start you need some water based markers i’m using tombow dual brush pens today
you will also need a good quality watercolor paper I’m using arches hot
press watercolor paper today technique number one the indirect method for this
technique is start by scribbling your marker color onto a blending palette you
can instead use some kind of laminated surface if you don’t have a blending
palette now we’ve created a watercolor palette of our own so we just dip a
paint brush in water pick up our color from the palette and paint it onto our
paper if you add more water you will get a watery look if you have less water on
your paint brush the color remains more intense I like to mix colors on the
paper add some pink and then drop in some yellow color and let the color
blend and mix on the paper by themselves I repeat that here with the greens for
the leaves as well this method is called indirect because we never bring the
marker directly to the paper at all and these tombow colors are bright and
vibrant and they look beautiful with the water on the paper technique number two
the direct method for this one we bring the marker to the paper and add a tiny
bit onto the paper itself then quickly spread that color to form a petal shape
using the wet paintbrush some papers work better for this technique than the
others I found that this artists paper that I’m using today it tended to hold
the color where we applied around the paper
so in that case you want to make sure that you’ll apply the marker to the
paper in areas that would be naturally darker in the flower like the shadows at
the base of each petal maybe are the center of a flower where it tends to be
darker again this is something that works differently on different kinds of
watercolor papers I personally feel the color spreads much better on the cancel
watercolor papers but I will leave more info about that in the blog post and
give a review of it as well you can try mixing two colors to create a new color
directly on the paper too technique number three the lair method
we start this just like the indirect method just color in all of the flowers
and leaves with a single color don’t drop in a darker shade or anything and
then we let it dry so you give it a five ten minute break and then come back and
add more details on top with a darker color so basically we’re just layering
color here something to keep in mind is if you work any area too much and keep
adding color on top of color you can end up with a muddy color this is because
the color beneath can react to the water once more and kind of become liquid we
don’t want to go and add like a green on top of a pink that would not work it
would this technique works only if you add a green on top of the green our
darker pink on top of a lighter pink as you can see this technique gives a
different look itself please like this video share with someone you know who
would find it useful if you’re looking to find the exact color numbers of the
tombow dual brush pens I used take a screenshot here I will leave info about
all the supplies I’ve used in my blog post and I will link that below as well
happy crafting friends you
