I really am hesitant to spend a lot of money on anything, but after reading reviews, watching Altenew tutorials with the brush markers, and seeing how many ways they can be used...I took a leap of faith. No regrets. The colors are rich, vibrant, and easy to work with!
These watercolor brush makers make a tin of watercolor cakes and a stubby paintbrush a thing of the past! Easy to hold, use and the pigment is so rich and bold. I haven’t completed a card yet but I LOVE these!!
I’m still learning to use them, but I have found that it works well to put the color on a mat or other tool rather than straight to paper. I’ve had a big drop ruin my coloring even though I wasn’t squeezing the tube. Also note the the Fiesta set is also called the Summer set. They are one & the same. I didn’t know that and got 2 of the same sets. There was no problem returning the extra set.
I just received mine a few weeks ago. I've had time to play around, and for me I like to take the color from the brush to palette instead of to paper. A lot of color comes out if you use the brush to paper, which is great too! I just have to play around with that method! But these are vibrant and gorgeous colors!!
These watercolor markers are amazing and very vibrant.
