I wrote last Friday about the new Zig Clear Colour Brush Markers I got recently - here's some tips about them.
Before I began, I looked at the whole raft of 48 Markers sitting in
their box and wondered how to identify the colours. They're stored with
the brush and almost clear cap upwards and the plastic colour 'guide' is on the other
end. Useful and quite an accurate colour match, but I didn't want to have to tip all the pens out in
search of particular colours.
This is my solution,
quite similar to how I also marked my Pro Markers, except that I could
use little round ready made sticky dots with the alcohol inks, the Zigs were too
wet and meant that the 'sticky' was lost.
First of all I wanted a colour swatch - I split mine up onto two 4.25" x 5.5" pieces of TH Distress Watercolour cardstock so they'll slot into the Zig box:
One thing you will surely spot is the load of browns and greys in the set - too many I suspect. But, it seems to often be the way that sets of markers are sort of 'padded out' and the 48 marker set did work out at great value against buying the markers separately!
At the same time as I was colouring the swatch, I also did this:
And this was the result - half way through, and I just plodded on and did one row at a time:
So far, so great with the markers! And I now wonder what took me so long to get them of course.
