Aquamarker Tutorial, 20 New Colours Blog Candy

We have 20 new shades in AquaMarkers, isn't that brilliant? I wanted a way to show just how well they work for crafters as well as artists so I started to do some hair colouring.
This is a video what I came up with, you will see just how quick and easy these are to work with.
 

 
So for a little view of some of the gorgeous new colours.
Vintage Blue, Rusted Red, Viridian, Lagoon, Oak and Dusty Plum.
Also Saltwater, Bitterwood, Quicksand, Plum Blush, Granite and Pink Champagne
visit the Letraset Blog here
If you leave a comment on the blogs I will be choosing a lucky winner to receive all 20 of the new colours
Image used is from Saturated Canary Digital Stamps and the water-brush is from Kuretake

I wanted to watch this vidio so much but unfortunately it did not work properly. It shut down soon after it started. I have debated if I should invest in this product so I thought this vidio might answer some of my questions. I will keep trying. You are so talented and I enjoy all your creations. Hope your back much better and that the walking sticks havve helped.

Carla S. said...

Fantastic tutorial, Jak! You make it look so easy to work with the Aquamarkers! Gorgeous new colors! Thanks for the chance to win them!

Mary Roberson said...

The blending really is what makes these markers look so realistic. I think it gives a bit of shading the way you use them (using 2 colors at the top and bottom and bringing them together in the middle). Great video, thanks for sharing it with us.
