HOT PRODUCTS!!! Koi Coloring Brush Pen Restocked with NEW Colours at

We've restocked the Koi® Coloring Brush pens in and brought in new colours!!!

why the Koi Colouring Brush pens craze?
Koi® Coloring Brush pens - a dye based pen - allows you to color your artwork easily, anywhere, anytime with the no-mess. The pens perform similarly to an artist brush where you can make fine, medium or bold brush strokes just by changing the amount of pressure to the nib. The durable tip will quickly spring back to its original shape! 
It is also odorless and the water-based solvent helps you blend smoothly and layer colours.
So, in short, the Koi® Coloring Brush pens are a convenient way to add vibrant color to any sketch, journal, cartoon, illustration, or rubber stamps. 

Check out the Hand Lettering Demo by Joanne Fink below:

The 48 transparent ink colors blend easily to create a multitude of hues and effects. 
Use the colorless blender pen to create seamless washes and color gradations.

And if you're looking for a pen that will write on photos endlessly (which I have for eons), be sure to check out this gem: Zig Photo Signature

TIPS & TECHNIQUES: Watercolor and Stamping with Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors by Jennifer McGuire

Word of warning: this is a rather lengthy video, but if gives a good overview of the Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors ... and that bits starts right at the beginning of the video.
If you're not into card marking and stamping, well, just stop the video midway!

and if you're thinking (like I did) ... hmmm... but I am not good at watercolouring and that's a bit too much to invest in ... well, this video and the ideas you can get online on how to use the Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors (even on dark cardstock!) you'll find good and expansive use for it.

Enjoy the video:

plus an extra video for those who are into the first one a lot! :)

So, as you can see that although the traditional Japanese Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors  were designed for professional artists and crafters, they can be enjoyed by novices and experts alike. 

Each watercolor block comes in an individual tray that can be removed from the palette during use. The underside of the box lid features a color chart that you can fill in yourself using the actual watercolors so that you can see exactly how they will appear when used.

The large pallets allow working straight from palette to paper, making them great for painting on the go. If heavily diluted the paint dries highly translucent or with less saturation it dries opaquely with a slight sheen. Can be used on conventional watercolour paper or dark coloured cards.

Manga and comic artists, illustrators, and lettering art professionals will enjoy the expressiveness of thick to thin strokes with ease and fluidity.
The brush nibs were specially developed to provide fantastic bounce and memory over long periods of use.

Courtney from Swiss Cottage Designs illustrated the tropical patterns (below) using all three Pigma Professional Brush pen weights – fine, medium, and bold.
