I was hoping these would be good. As other have said, they LEAK. Most of the watercolor markers leak. I am not squeezing too hard. I don't have to squeeze much at all, they just leak. I am using them as directed. They bubble and leak.
Not all, but most, and when they do, they destroy the stamped image. The ones that don't leak, are fantastic, but too many of my pack leak.
I could have contacted Altenew when it happened, but I am not one for returning items, I find it to be a pain in the butt. I swallowed the loss, my decision.
I still love Altenew, just not the watercolor markers.
Thanks for taking the time out of your busy day to give us your feedback about the item. We're sorry to hear it didn't work well on the others.
Can you please send us a photo of the colored impressions so we can help you further?
We look forward to hearing from you soon.
These markers are the first watercolor I have tried outside of grade school. I was leery of trying watercolor. I was not sure it was for me and I was sure I would make a mess. So far, my experience has been a good one. I feel like they give me the opportunity to experiment and get familiar with watercolor, while maintaining a bit more control over the process. The only drawback was they were a bit tricky to set up to use the first time.
I love these watercolor brush markers! I made a color chart for all of the markers and really enjoyed how easy and fun it is to paint with these markers. I shopped a lot of brands before deciding on Altenew and am very happy with the quality, vibrant colors, and that the pens are refillable.
Wow! The colors from these brush pens are beautiful! I played with them for so long, I had to order pizza for dinner.
I'm not a Watercolor expert so these Brush Markers make it so easy for me to achieve a professional look. The colors are true and vibrant
