I have had these for awhile and just recently used them for an Altenew Stencil class. Oh my, lovely. A nice fine tip point to get into tiny spots. Vibrant colors that blend well together. I received the Altenew palette for free. I liked how I could squeeze color from the barrel of marker onto the palette and pick up the color with a regular paint brush when needed or add clean water to that color to dilute the color. I purchased the refills as well and have liked how adding these to embossing paste has really stepped up my stencil use for card making. I think Altenew needs to promote this product more as I think those who love water coloring will enjoy these markers. Thanks Altenew for making such a quality product.
I love to color with Altenew’s watercolor brush markers. I had to complete the set with the tropical fiesta set. Looking forward to coloring with these.
I am not an expert in water coloring nor on supplies but these brushes are very easy to use and to create wonderful paintings with. I gave it a four because sometimes the drops come out quite quickly with not a lot of pressure. I found the colors to be vibrant and I enjoyed using them on some multi purpose Canson paper. I also felt that the red was a bit more orange than red. It did not compliment the red wine color as much as I would have liked and I had to keep trying to lighten the red in the picute with the gold stripes behind the image. I did not test them out or swatch the prior to use. I just jumped right in, so I would advise swatching them prior.
I used the red, wine, and both greens in the project I made and have yet to try the other colors but I am sure they will not disappoint.
i love te markers. The colors are very vibrant.
