Y'all, I'm so excited to be bringing you a tutorial in a new form today----video!! It's so exciting, though I am a bit nervous for you to see it since I haven't done a YouTube Video in like 3 years.
This week, I posted this photo on Instagram, and a lot of people were surprised to know that I used Tombow Dual Brush Pens (The NEW Galaxy Palette) to create this awesome watercolor piece.
The new galaxy palette is stinkin' AMAZING. All the colors in this 10-piece set combine and blend together to make beautiful unicorn/galaxy hybrid color variations!
Check out my quick swatch picture below. I created this first thing just to have a 'key' when choosing what colors I wanted to pair together.
AND BTW: You can get all Dual Brush Pen 10 Packs 20% off if you use the code 'YAY20' on Tombow's Website. Don't miss out on this offer....it's only good September 22-26!
Then, I decided...why not film myself re-creating the watercolor piece? In the video I not only use the markers in the galaxy palette to create watercolor lettering, but I use a few extra tools to bring the galaxy theme to life.
Click play to watch the video, but refer back to this blog post for a full list of recommended materials, and written instructions.
Tracing Pad (I use this one)
Watercolor or Mix Media Paper
Tombow Dual Brush Pen Galaxy Palette
A large round brush (I use size 12)
A small detail brush
A stiff brush for paint splattering
A cup of clean water
Paper towels on hand for blotting and drying brushes
White acrylic Paint
Gold Acrylic Paint
So, I realize I don't go over the basics of using a brush to letter or doing watercolor lettering, so if that's something you'd like to see, please leave me a comment here in this blog post or on the video, and I will make it happen for you :)
See ya next week!
