I took an online "watercoloring with Tombow's" class and love the markers for that purpose. You start out with the lighter color then build up from there.

From what I've seen from Tim Holtz's videos about his new markers, they look really cool. You can wet them to watercolor and blend, but they hold their color and wont get muddy. Or, you can apply different colors onto a stamp, then stamp, then use the waterbrush to get a watercolor look. So essentially you can use a red and blue marker directly onto say a butterfly stamp, then after you stamp the image go over it with the wet brush. This will sort of blend the colors a bit, but won't give you a purple muddy mess.

I don't know if I'm making any sense, and I apologize if I'm confusing anyone I'm only on mug #2 of coffee.

Tim of course describes it a lot better in the Youtube video I watched from this past CHA yesterday
