While in Illinois, I visited a Dick Blick Outlet Store with my friend Connie and workshop hostess Darla. Four hours later, I rolled out in a happy daze with a load of new art supplies. One of the wonderful things I found there was a set of 96 Tombow markers for 1/4 of their list price.
People often ask me what is my favorite medium to use on coloring pages, and next to watercolors it is Tombow markers. In fact, Tombows turn into a watercolor when you add water, so I often just outline the inside of a coloring space then wash with water to fill in the rest. They are also super blendable, so you can easily mix colors.
The other great thing is that they have a fine point tip, and a brush tip so you can use them for tiny detail work, or for painting in areas.
What is your favorite marker?
