Smile Blending with Tombow Markers

Can you only blend properly with tombow markers if you stamp onto watercolour paper?

I normally stamp onto cardstock (110 lb)-whatever I have available. I did buy the Papertry white cardstock but haven't used it yet.

I really like the Tombow's and I just bought the blender pen so I want to try this out.

Thanks!

Default RE: Blending With Tombow Markers

Hi

I use Tombow markers as well as some other ones. In my experience, using a watercolour paper is a much better way... Sometimes, if you have to blend little longer and get some more colour out, regular card-stock will start to frill. I usually do no blending colouring with Tombows on a card-stock and blend on a watercolour paper. I hope this helps. Good luck!

I use regular cardstock a lot with my Tombows but I rub them on an old CD and then pick up that colour with an aquabrush. It gives a really nice, watercolour look.

I mostly use regular cardstock (110 weight Georgia Pacific) and stamp my image in Palette Hybrid Noir and spray with a light coat of Krylon Workable Fixatif. I let it dry and it really minimizes the pilling of the cardstock when blending. I also color onto an old CD, piece of glass, or I have something that's like whiteboard material and use them as a palette with my waterbrush. If I'm just coloring something small, I skip the Fixatif and color directly on the cardstock.

Default Tombows

I actually have a tutorial on my blog with tombows, and just taught a class at the LSS. Watercolour paper truly is the best paper to use because you need a fair amount of water which will buckle normal paper. The secret is to layer your colours ie. Colour a petal light pink, from the bottom up add a little darker colour, and then on top of that, add a darker colour a little ways up the mid colour. Make sense?

Then, you put a #0 or #2 artist paint brush in water, and in a circular motion, you blend upwards.

There are two cards using Tombows in my gallery if you would like to see examples.

Good luck.
