Default Blending with SU! markers?

Is there any way to blend with SU! markers?? I like using the markers, but it seems they end up streaky looking if the image is a bigger area....

If you have the blender pen, you can blend SU markers by scribbling some color onto a palette (CD case, acrylic block, etc.) then pick the color up with the blender. It also helps if you use watercolor paper.

the only way I have found to use the SU markers to color in a large area is with water and watercolor paper or other heavy paper. The blender pen is not effective, IMHO, for larger areas. However, you can get some stunning results with these markers. Here's a tutorial on you tube to give you an idea of what I mean. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-K5Ln...eature=related
