Thanks for the tutorial. I'll definately be giving this a try as there have been a few occasions recently where I've ended up with the mottled effect when trying to lighten a colour. x

Thanks Debbie M

Lavender Rose said...

Thanks for the tutorial Jak. It's very welcome as I have been using Promarkers for some time but had no luck with the blender and was obviously going about it all wrong. I love the effect you got on the tutorial page with the pale pink.

Love it thanks for the great tute. :D

Daisycat said...

Good tutorial Jak didn't know you could use the blender pen to pick the colour up and use as a lighter shade.

Marge said...

Fabulous tutorial, Jak! Use it all the time for my Copics. Didn't think I "needed" Promarkers, but IF I would win, I could see if they differ in shades from Copics I have or give away as Blog Candy on my blog -- fun, fun!

Wonderful tutorial Jak the pics make it so easy to follow. I did wonder if I needed a blender - I do now!

Maggie Smith said...

What a great tutorial Jak, you make it so easy to follow. I can see where I was going wrong & must get hold of a blender pen as I'm sure it will help me to blend the colours better.
I am using more digi stamps now & the promarkers will make my life so much easier.
Can I also say I really enjoy watching your blog & the fab samples you make which give me such inspiration for my own cards.

JO said...

Thankyou so much for your lessons on promarkers. I have learnt more in ten minutes in watching that, than the past ten weeks of using them. Good work, love the website. Thankyou x

dmorg said...

Great Tutorial... Always wondered how they blended the colours lol... tried lots of different markers but never got that effect, they look really good, there are so many shades. Sorry haven't got a blog.. I suppose I should get blogging really, maybe i'll start one this bank holiday, but I will put a link on my facebook page. Dawn x
