At some point last year, during a trip to Poundland (a UK version of a dollar store), I saw these.
I had a brief flashback to childhood. We used these more than once, and I was always amazed. Even know, I don’t entirely get how they work. They must be actual magic.
If you don’t know what they are, they’re simple felt tip pens. When you colour with them, the colour is the colour (roughly) of the barrel.
When you go over that with the white pens, the colour changes to the the colour (roughly) of the lid.
After swatching, I drew out a Domun. Colouring the small parts was fine.
When you move to the larger sections you start to get the same issue you always get with water-based markers. Streaky, starting to tear up the paper. But I’m not aiming for a masterpiece here.
And then you add the magic and voila!
As ever with water-based markers I considered that they’d probably work better for lettering pieces.
I was right!
