Well if you do you are going to love Aquamarkers.
Letraset sent me their test range of Aquamarkers to see what I could do with them. I didn't think I could get them to do anything different to their Promarkers until I started faffing about with them. And the more you faff, the more you discover what things are capable of.
Basically, these pens are the king of all water based markers. They are big, fat and juicy with a steady flow of delicious colour that you can mix with water to create watercolour effects on your rubber stamps, collage work, backgrounds and canvasses.
Now they are about to be re-launched (with more colour choices) in August to the crafting market and these three projects have been approved for their press release. My job was to create something other than "just colouring in" so I swished the pens on some acetate, spritzed in some water and dragged the tags through it to create a marbled background.
also coloured the edges of a tag in a thick saturated coating of juicy lime green and then used a paint brush loaded with water to dilute the colour towards the centre of the tag.
My overall feeling about these pens is that they are more portable than a paint and brush kit (ie no huge pallets to lug around and little screw capped tubes to fiddle with) and double up for marking as a pen plus the added bonus is that they are light fast making them EXCELLENT for archival work (ie scrapbooking).
Promarkers are alcohol infused which means they colour in on even non porous surfaces and blend beautifully but the Aquamarkers are a world apart making sure that you get a clever blendability by mixing with water. So whatever your thang is in the craft world, I think Letraset have got all angles covered.
**Letraset are giving away a pack of 40 Aquamarkers to one lucky commentor on this blog post. All you have to do is tell me what you would use these pens for. Sensible answers and nothing like "drawing lines on hubbies faces when they are asleep!!" - There are also runner up prizes of packs of 12 to be won, too**
