This pen makes blending my other water color pens so easy. I also found that if I use a Distress Ink stamp pad right onto my non stick craft sheet, I can then use this pen to pick up the color and use it to paint. This pen will get a lot of use from me...and the nib cleans easily by just wiping it on the non stick craft sheet a few times.
This brush is great for fine detail as well as a slightly bigger area. I am so glad a friend recommended this Water Brush Pen to me. It works great with my water color pencils. It also travels well. It doesn't seem to leak.
This detailer water brush is great. It provides consistency, yet there is a lot of control over your techniques with just a little practice. I really love that there are many uses and it's convenient to use.
I highly suggest looking on YouTube to get the most out of this water brush.
Here are some things you can do with this brush:
-Without filling the barrel with water, you can still use water with it like you would a traditional brush
-Fill the barrel with Dylusions Ink Spray (don't forget to search on YouTube for how to use this water brush as a "ghosting" technique; using the water to take away some ink for cool effects)
-Lightly squeeze the barrel to get the water from inside it to dispense more water
-Lightly squeeze the barrel to get the water from inside to clean out the color on the brush nib
-Wipe it on paper towel/ Ranger 15-Inch-by-18-Inch Inkssentials Craft Sheet/Back of your hand ect to clean off the brush nib
--The water will get used quicker if you are using a surface with high absorbency
-Don't store this water brush nib side down; I store it nib side up instead of on it's side just in case.
-Keep track of the cap
