Happy Monday everyone! Tabbatha here today for a down and dirty intro to the fabulous Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens! We all know I’ve been obsessed with them lately, but I wanted to go over just how quick you color with them. I also included a bit about my favorite skin combos!
We at Some Odd Girl love our different mediums so I thought it would be fun to create something with the Zigs just for you all! Here is the card that I made using the sleeping kitty and fishes from Clever Kittys clear stamp set (combined with papers from the Sunshine Sorbet collection, and our fabulous Hexie Dots wood veneers!) I’ve had my eye on this set for awhile so I was very excited to get the cute kitties colored up with my favorite medium just now. You can see the various looks you can achieve from the Zigs in each of the stamps, but to find out more you need to watch the vid! 😉
But first! What exactly are Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens?
These are watercolor pens by the fabulous Kuretake company. The pens boast a synthetic brush that you find on the awesome water brushes that are very popular (you’ll see two of mine in the video!). This means that you can do some different techniques than with other watercolor pens. You don’t have to worry about contaminating your brushes and you can always go back in with the pens – even on wet paper! This means these pens are very forgiving and great for first time watercolorists like myself. 🙂
The pens come in singles, as well as packs starting with 12 pens right on up to 60. I purchased the 36 pen set plus a Light Blue (036) for backgrounds. 🙂 Do you need all 60? I would say no, but you can achieve so much more when you have lots of colors, right? I am very happy with my 36 set – it has all the colors I need to do flesh!
So tune in to the video and if you have any questions you can always ask them in the Some Odd Girl Facebook group!
