What Are The NEW Winsor & Newton Water Colour Markers?
Winsor & Newton Water Colour Markers are new for 2014. They contain real Water Colour Paint in a pen! These highly pigmented, lightfast twin tipped Water Colour Markers have a soft flexible brush tip one end and a fine point at the other, allowing for a range of line thicknesses and strokes to be achieved.
We are sure that these pens will be a popular choice not just with watercolour artists but all artists, illustrators and designers. Watercolour Markers are so blendable you have to see it to believe it! Just add water!
Winsor & Newton Water Colour Markers give you more control over the flow and precision compared to the traditional technique of applying watercolour paint with a brush. Just add water to the ink with a brush or sponge to blend the lines laid down by the markers to give stunning watercolour effects.
For best results, use Winsor & Newton Water Colour Markers on Watercolour Paper or Winsor & Newton Water Colour Marker Paper. This is a 140lbs / 300gsm watercolour paper that has been designed for use with the Markers. It has a cold pressed surface and won’t cockle as much when water is added and the ink will blend a lot more smoothly, spreading the colours across the page.
