Power of the Pen
So, I took a break from my coloring and finishing my colored images to do some work with the new Zig pens I got. I used a set of the Calligraphy markers (I am sure I have seen these at Hobby Lobby), a .05 Millennium Pen (which you can find at most any art or craft store...they are great...even quilters use them) and a water brush from EK Success. I prefer a real brush for watercolor painting, but this worked great for lettering.
Anyway, put a pen in my hand and I am entertained for hours! My husband had to make me go to bed last night as I didn't want to put my markers down!
These calligraphy pens are waterproof once they are dry, but that doesn't mean that you can't scribble some ink on a non porous surface and use that for shadows and coloring a watercolor look.
And thanks to everyone that commented on my robbery. I appreciate all the kind thoughts. Its the hours of time editing and personal things like my mother's wedding band that can't be replaced, but at least I wasn't hurt.
