Good morning! Today I have a card to share that uses the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I colored this image a while ago and posted it on social media and received such a warm reception! So I finally finished out the card and sent this off to a friend. I’ve watercolors a few more since then live on Periscope and had a blast talking to you guys!! (Periscope is a live streaming interactive app you can download on your smartphone and interact with the periscoper. My handle is @lbeard).
I purchased my Zig open stock (individually) from Ellen Hutson because I wanted to try them out to be sure I liked them and then I finished out my inventory with colors that I was personally drawn to. I know many that have purchased just the 12 pack and have been quite happy with it as you can mix the colors to create custom colors! I also know plenty who splurged and got the 80 pack!! It’s really whatever you are personally interested in. 🙂 A few resources for the zigs:
Note: I have discovered using the Zigs is all about the paper!!! When I first got them, I hated them! I played with them for hours and couldn’t get them to blend. Then a friend told me it was more than likely my paper! I tried a 90# no name brand I had in my craft room and poof! Magic!!!!! Also, Bristol (which is ironically NOT a watercolor paper) works well with these markers. I prefer a 90# watercolor paper over the Bristol by a tad. But both would work just fine I have found. I have linked to a few papers I use in the supply list.
