Kuretake Zig Brush Marker Flowers

Zig Flowers

Hi All,

This is my second post of the day. My first post is a review and tutorial of the watercolor brush markers I used on these flowers. I am really impressed with these markers – they are vibrant and easy to blend.

    Hi Darlene, I saw these brush markers recently and wondered about getting a set. After watching you use them in both videos today, I really liked how vibrant they are and how easy they are to use. So I’m convinced they’ll be an excellent addition to my watercolour stash. It’s interesting how each watercolour medium gives a slightly different effect.

    Darlene, thank you for the tutorial on these markers. Looks like they are just a perfect tool for those of us afraid of watercolor! Alas, they are burning a hole in my wishlist!

    This card is just beautiful! How long did it end up taking you? The colors are so vibrant, I think I may have to have a set of these markers! Not to mention that beautiful stamp set. 🙂

      Hi Barb. I would guess the card took about 45 minutes or so.

    Darleen, I am impressed. Looks like I will have to invest in these markers (that’s if I can get them in Australia). Yet another great video. Thanks Darleen.

    Hi Darlene,
    I finally bit the bullet and purchased a set after months of deliberation. I’ve had a hard time learning to work with my copics and my desire to color with my stamped images to get another perspective in my card making… you make it all seem so effortless. However, seeing how much easier it is to blend and color with the Zig markers I figured I’ve got nothing to loose!
