As I've said, these are fine markers for a good price, but do know how to use them before making the purchase. I've enclosed a partly colored sketch, nothing amazing, but just to give an example of how these markers look.
10 Dual Brush (great tips for tiny details) and Bullet Point Markers (I don't like to color with this end.. It pulls the paper fibers up too quick, some people don't seem to mind, but I don't like when that happens. Works fine for lettering)
What Are They Good For?
Water Based.. Can be used for stamping, watercolors, fancy letters (awesome blended colored words online), and coloring..
Re-usable Clam Shell Case/Plastic Packaging..
Anti-roll Caps.. Primary Colors Included:
Process Yellow #055
Sap Green #245
Sea Green #346
Deep Blue #565
BEWARE! Colors Can Be Duplicated In Some Sets..
COLORING: I used these markers to color a copied coloring book page that was on 90lb paper. The bullet tip is "rough" and more "scratchy" in texture than the brush tip side. I don't like when I get that roughed up paper feel or scratchy look from my markers, so I gave these 4 Stars. This realistically is a problem with all water based markers and that's why Copics and Spectrum Noir markers have a market. I love these markers for the brush tips and the ability to color tiny details, stamp with them or make fancy letters (I'm not in to that, but I've seen pictures how these long brush tips are great for lettering). I am not as much of a fan of the "scratchy" bullet side. Originally, I thought I would use the bullet end to color larger spaces but I don't like the way it "blends" or moves across the paper as much as I like the brush ends for coloring. For lettering.. the bullet tip seems fine. So I basically stick to using the side with the brush tips when I use these. These Tombow markers don't bleed through paper as much as the alcohol markers/Copics do which is their advantage with coloring in coloring books. The other thing I like about this set is that I can grab it and go..using the clamshell packaging for storage and have a great color mix on hand with 10 markers. So small, pretty and convenient. Only downside with frequent coloring is they aren't refillable.
WATERCOLORING: Just a TOTAL beginner here.. I tried watercoloring with these Tombow's for the first time (bright set actually) and they seemed good for that but learn from my mistakes.. Be sure to use the appropriate 140lbs. watercolor paper (90 lb won't even work.. I tried on a scratch piece of cardstock 4th picture), like Canson's Watercolor pad.. And be sure to use Staz-On or Archival Ink when stamping an image to watercolor on so you don't wind up with a blurred mess. Looks like a girl had too much washable mascara and went swimming.. (Sherri Baldy's My Besties Stamp) Black MESS EVERYWHERE (I knew better but already stamped with the wrong ink on my watercolor paper by mistake.. BIG MISTAKE) I used an acrylic stamping block to squiggle the Tombow colors on to and used Pentel water brush pens for actually watercoloring with.. The pens did well..can't say the same for me..I over saturated the paper and got outside of the lines.. Not sure I'll finish this one... But Oh Well play on.. LOL. I might need to just stick with colored pencils a LOT longer.. At least the stamped ink and paper were right this time on the 2nd Mermaid Stamped image. ;)
Update: Last Picture Shown .. LETTERING: FROM A NEVER TRIED IT PERSPECTIVE.. vs Zig Real Brush Tip Marker.. Don't Laugh.. ;)
I wanted to demonstrate the difference in the brush tip size. But I have never tried lettering before.. So here goes a totally inexperienced opinion.. The Tombow Brush tips seem to want to make "bigger" letters with it's larger brush tip than the Zig Real Brush tips. As shown in the last picture.. But keep in mind that the Tombow's have the bullet tips that seem to handle smaller words/lines than the brush tips. I am not sure if this information will help with anyone's perspective or not.. But here it is..
1st-3rd Pictures..Here's a frequent Prismacolor template I use to compare my colors.. It isn't on watercolor paper and (I think it's my 60lb paper) and this will be the darkest potential of color produced since it's on such a small space. It has the Primary, Secondary, Brights, & Muted Set colors on it. It gives a handy quick view and let's you see the duplicate colors found in those sets.
Where to find it? If you are interested.. The template that I frequently use is from the Prismacolor dot com website. Go there, then products tab, then prismacolor colored pencils..on the bottom of the web page is a light colored green pencil that says "download here." Click on that pencil and you can print you own templates too.
