Aquamarkers and other Markers
Last week I heard about Aquamarkers from Letraset for the first time. You cannot get them in one of the big art shops here in Berlin, but they are sold in a German online art shop.
Fortunately YouTube is a wonderful resource, and so I searched for some videos about them. They are markers with watersoluble ink – which means that you can treat them like watercolours. You apply the ink on the paper (watercolour paper is best), and then move the colour around with a brush.
I ordered three Aquamarkers in pink shades, got them last week and had to try them out. I combined them with my “normal” markers (some copics, some of a German brand). The result you can see above. You can mix colours by adding more than one marker mark on one spot, and then going over the paints with a brush.
