Magic with Alcohol-Based Markers

This week I have two videos to share to help you feel more comfortable using the CTMH Exclusive Inks® alcohol-based marker sets. I have to admit, I love using watercolor pencils and have yet to give the alcohol-based markers a try, but these videos gave me more confidence and I am looking forward to giving this technique a try.

The CTMH Corp. description of the Marker Magic video is "Coloring has never been so fun! Learn how to use Close To My Heart's alcohol-based marker sets to magically create smooth, even coverage on your colored images."

Items featured in the video:
You will want to use the Black Stazon® Ink Pad (Z888), Archival Black Exclusive Inks® Stamp Pad (44751) or the black from the Basics Exclusive Inks® Mini Pigment Pads Set (Z2503) (you could use the Brown Stazon® Ink Pad or any color of the Exclusive Inks® Mini Pigment Pads depending on the look you are trying to achieve). You do not want to use dye-based ink pads because they are water-based and coloring with the alcohol-based markers may make the image bleed and your artwork look "muddy". Stamp pad selection is discussed more in the video that will be posted on Wednesday.

If you would like more information about the alcohol-based markers, stamp pads or any CTMH product, please do not hesitate to contact me and I'll do my best to answer your questions. If you would like to purchase any of the items, click the Shop Now button.
