The classes with Jane Davenport have been going REALLY well, I need to get some pictures on here don’t I. Today I dug out my Zig Art n Graphic Markers to see how they went colouring in my sketches. Here are the results
Its not the best photo sorry uploading from a tablet as laptop low on memory. The paper is WHSmiths 135 gsm and to be fair its not for wet media, it took one layer of pen fine but the additional layers of pen did pull up the surface. But what was a worry was the fact that the Faber Castell Pitt Artist pen which is India ink and waterproof; moved and smudged when I got the Zig Marker near it, this was a surprise as the Zig pens are waterbased so should have had no effect on the marker.
I quickly scribbled on a different area of the page and also used my nail to carefully move the black ink of the rubber nib of the Zig pen, since the Pitt pen ink is waterproof I didn’t want it to dry on the Zig pen. Luckily it did come off.
I am new to the world of markers, and know enough that regular papers are not ideal for them. I used to use a very nice paper by Rey but they don’t seem to be around any more, I used to get it in Staples. If anyone reading this can recommend a good paper for water based markesrs I would really apreciate it.
These sketches were from the class ‘Express Yourself’, I had previously taken Jane’s Supplies me class which is all about which kinds of products work the best for her style of art. I also enjoyed Beautiful Faces and the book of the class too. I need to put up some more photos of sketches in a while. In the meantime do check out my previous post where you can find details of Jane’s classes.
Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon
