Hi everyone! Happy Satur-YAY! We're celebrating the weekend by getting our craft on. I hope I can inspire you to get in your crafty zone and create something that brings you joy on this fine Satur-YAY!
Today, I wanted to give you a look at the Zig Art & Graphic Twin Tip Markers and show you the similarities and differences between the Twin Tips and the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, also from Zig. Zig is well known for their amazing color products, from the Clean Color markers that we love, to the sparkly Wink Of Stellas and the Gansai Tambi watercolors. Their quality products never disappoint. The Twin Tips are now available in the Ellen Hutson shop and I wanted to give you an up close look at these markers.
In the video tutorial below, I will give you a look at the Art & Graphic Twin markers alongside the Clean Color Real Brush markers. There are some similarities between the two. However, there are a few important differences that set them apart from each other. I am hoping this up close look will help you determine which suit your crafting needs best.
Here are a few of the most important features of the Zig Art & Graphic Twin markers
- Waterbased Dye Ink
- Dual Tipped -rubber brush tip and small 0.8mm bullet nib
- Xylene Free
- Blends easily with water, blender pen or sparkle pens
- Use rubber brush end for direct to stamp coloring, brush/hand lettering or watercolor effect
- Use fine nib for writing, sketching or detail work
- Available in sets or individually
- Full set comes with handy carrying case and keeps them stored horizontally
Zig recommends that you store these markers horizontally for best results.
While I was playing with and discovering these markers, I wanted to make a project. My favorite part about these markers is the durable rubber brush nib which makes them perfect for coloring directly on to a stamp. This allows you to get effortless color blending on your stamped images.
I used a few colors to color directly on this Dina Wakely circle stamp and stamped it directly on to a card front. I used multiple colors on one stamp to get a gradient effect and worked my way up the card, fading the color as I went. I wanted the focus of this card to be the green, Pantone's color of the year. And I love green....have you ever seen my craft room? I was cool before Pantone said I was cool.... ;)
