Default Watercolor marker comparison

Hey Y'all,
I found this video comparing all the latest watercolor markers that was very informative and wanted to pass it along in the hopes it might help those who are on the fence about what watercolor markers to invest in or if they should invest in MORE! Ha, we never do that, right?



hope it helps!

Indeed. And how she did the analytical, factual stuff first and opinion second. Very nicely done.

That was great, thanks. Wish she had done with Distress Ink Pens as well. So many pens so many decisions.

Great video! I subscribed to her channel - hope she'll do more reviews! She is my people!

I have quite a few of the Aquamarkers, but it seems that most stores are clearing them out right now. Other than those, I have Distress markers, Akashiya and 18 Zigs.

I just love my Winsor Newton markers. They need to be used with watercolor paper as they are highly pigmented and some papers suck the color into them. The Winsor Newton watercolor marker paper is amazing. Here is a great review of them. Review ? Winsor and Newton New Watercolour Markers by Charles Evans | SAA Blog | society for all artists

She did a great job and confirmed my love of Tombow markers.

She confirmed what I already knew, I don't need to jump on the newest fads bandwagon.

Tombows have been around and used by stampers for a long time and are a tried & true solid product choice. Now I just need to go thru mine and toss the dried out ones and buy more of them to replace and/or fill in color gaps.

Great review. I bookmarked it since my memory isnt great. Thank you!

I have started collecting Tombow b/c I cant afford Copics. I know they are different bases but I am considering the end effect-blending.

Chameleon markers are alcohol based, so they're not comparable to the markers in the video. They're a lot of fun though! You can find out more about them in their forum here:
