The New Aqua Markers from Spectrum Noir are a water based artist quality pen. Just like there Spectrum Noir Alcohal Markers they are dual ended with a flexible soft brush nib at one end and a very fine tip at the other.
So these too need to be stored on their side so the ink chamber in the middle can feed both of the nibs.
These are of such fine artist quality that you have the convenience of taking them anywhere but you do not have the mess and fuss of normal watercolour paints.
You don’t need as many colours as like normal water colours you can colour mix the different colours to get extra colours you require.
Same goes for getting different shades of the same colour, just add some water to create the different shades of the same colour.
The only extras you will need is water, some good quality paint brushes, a fine water spray bottle and the card/paper. Crafters Companion Watercolour Card is great as it can take a lot of water before sheading fibres this has a textured finish and gives your projects a professional look. If you prefer a smoother look you can use Sheena’s Stamping Card which you can get from Crafters Companion.
Aqua Markers are safe to use as the ink inside is water soluble so there is no odor and they are acid free so great if you wish to use them on your scrapbooking projects too.
Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers are not just for colouring you can use the pens in many ways to create different backgrounds to any of your papercrafting projects.
I have made some quick short videos showing you all the extra things you can do with your Aqua Markers. So go on take a look and see what else you can do with these great versatile pens from Spectrum Noir.
