I just love using Tombow Dual Brush Pens to create a watercolor effect and the new XL Blending Palette is perfect for that! Today I’m going to show you how I create watercolor backgrounds for lettering projects. You’ll need the XL Blending Palette, Dual Brush Pens in your favorite colors, a water mister, watercolor paper, and Mono Drawing Pen or Fudenosuke Pen.
To create your watercolor background start by adding some ink to your XL Blending Palette with your Dual Brush Pens. Spray a little water over the ink then press your watercolor paper down onto the palette. Blot any extra water with some paper towel, and if you want the color to run a little more you can spray water directly onto your paper. While you’re waiting for your paper to dry, wipe down your blending palette with damp paper towel and you’re ready to start again! What are your favorite colors to blend together?
Here's a video of the whole process.
Once your watercolor background is dry you’re ready to start your lettering project. I used Mono Drawing Pens, Dual Brush Pens and my Fudenosuke to create the lettering on this project. Do you have a favorite quote, let me know in the comments!
