Blender Pens & Water Brushes

Using a Blender Pen or Water Brush

The blender pen is a dual tip marker which is filled with clear blending fluid. The tip of the pen can be cleaned by simply scribbling ink color (from the last use) onto a scrap paper until it flows clear. Even though the tip appears stained, future performance will not be affected.

The water brush is a paint brush and water container rolled into one. Greate for traveling and convenience. The handy tool allows for a little water for blending watercolor pencils or ink - or a lot of water, by squeezing the barrel and allowing more water to flow through the brush tip.

TECHNIQUES

USING THE BLENDER PEN OR WATER BRUSH WITH INK PADS
Stamp an image using a water based dye pad. Use the blender pen or water brush to lightly stroke the outline color into the inside areas. This will result in an image with several tones of the same color; for example, a deep blue image with lighter, "watered down" blue inside.

USING THE BLENDER PEN OR WATER BRUSH WITH MARKERS

  • Stamp an image by coloring the rubber die of the stamp with water based markers. Pull color from the outline to the center areas by stroking with the blender pen or water brush, as above.
     
  • Use a blender pen or water brush to apply marker ink which has been scribbled onto a plastic plate, blending the colors just like you would blend watercolor paints with a brush.
     
  • Use a blender pen or water brush to soften the stroke marks left behind when you have colored an area with water based markers.

USING THE BLENDER PEN OR WATER BRUSH WITH WATERCOLOR PENCILS
Both of these tools are perfect for blending watercolor pencil colors, eliminating the need for water and a paintbrush. The colors intensify and blend smoothly, and the paper does not buckle from being over-moistened.

USING THE BLENDER PEN OR WATER BRUSH WITH DECORATING CHALK
Blend and moisten chalk colors with the blender pen or water brush to intensify colors and work the chalk into the surface of the paper. It will not need spray fixative to remain in place.
