At first I held back from this purchase - I've got the Adirondack markers, Stampin' Up! markers, Copic alcohol ink markers - why would I 'need' another set of markers? I am soooo glad I purchased the Tim Holtz Distress Marker set. They complement my distress ink pads and I can get the same lovely techniques with misting. Thirty-seven colors in a portable package to take on crafting adventures...what could be better.
I watched a video showing how these markers could be used with the water pens for watercoloring. I purchased good quality watercolor paper, the pens, and the markers yet there was no blendability ( if that is a word). I saw the original marks which I had not expected to see according to the video. The original marks did not disperse. So, I will use them in other ways but not for the purpose of watercoloring.
That's what I get for buy while on a super special. some tips don't work both ends .Others the ink bubbles out off or they are dry(which the black was) I expected better from ranger.
I love these markers. I purchased the whole set and I'm so glad I did. They are great for coloring on chunky stamps and stamping. You can spritz with water before stamping and get a great water color look. Love the way you can scribble on your craft mat and pick up the color with a water brush and watercolor with them. So versatile! Great range of colors. The tips are into a fine point and coloring with them is a dream!!! I'd recommend them to anyone. Everything you love about Distress Ink is now in a marker.
If you love the Tim Holtz distress inks, then you will LOVE these markers! One to "match" every color distress ink pad!!! I have found that they're great for coloring images (and you can blend with them) and you can also color your stamps with them...then gently "huff" on the stamp and stamp...Fabulous markers!!! So glad I ordered them!!
