Default Did anyone else watch what Anna Griffin did on HSN?

She did this really cool thing with her water color markers. It was so simple yet i never would have thought to do it, LOL

She literally took her water color markers and dipped the brush tips into WATER to soften the color!

DOH! how come i never thought you could do that??????

i do wonder though, how it will eventually affect the ink inside the barrell?

any one tried this???

I've seen videos with Tim Holtz's Distress Markers where he picks up water he sprayed on the table with the tip of the marker to soften the colors. I don't see why you couldn't just dip them quickly in a small container of water.

I used to see some Anna Griffin things at Michaels from time to time, but not ever very much. Then when they put in the whole Martha Stewart section, I haven't seen Anna Griffin there at all.

I think she mainly sells at smaller retail papercraft stores and on HSN several times a year.
