Welcome to this week’s Tombow Blog hop with guest designer Trixi Hulm!
Here’s some magic you can do with Tombow’s Glue Pen and the Dual Brush Markers. I started with a piece of smooth, 90lb watercolor paper from Canson and used the glue pen to draw a simple flower. Because you are drawing with a clear pen onto white paper, make sure you have good, direct overhead lighting, and you need to hold your head just right to be able to see the wet glue on the paper! Let the glue dry a few minutes and then cover the paper with color using the splash technique. Splash technique? Simply cover the blending palette with Dual Brush Pen color, mist on water and then place the paper right side down into the diluted color. Lift up and let dry for an interesting watercolor background. The Glue Pen resists the color and you have a white lined drawing! No need to remove the glue!
Next use your Dual Brush Pens to add color into the details, you can add it directly onto the paper or use the indirect blending method.
Here are some additional images using the same Glue Pen resist technique. Oh yea, the glue pen is also awesome to adhere rhinestones, glitter or other small embellishments onto your paper crafts!
The more you comment, the more chances you have to win!
Now, head on over to Trixi’s Blog to see what kind of craftiness she is up to!
