blending of Tombow Dual Brush Pens
Hello all. Amazon.com is having a sale on their Tombow Dual Brush Pen Sets. These pens are water-soluble and can be used like watercolor pens. Their brush pen end also makes beautiful lettering techniques which I am learning in this book, Lettering With Purpose by Brittany Luiz.
Each of the sets below come with nine colors and a blender pen. The pens have both a fine point and a brush pen. They can be blended using either the blending pen or by touching one brush tip to the other. As the photo shows you can get some spectacular results with just a little learning. The blender pen can be used to give watercolor effects and you can also use a water brush to move the color around or blend colors on a piece of plastic then use a brush to make washes. Tips clean easily after blending, the pens are water-based, odorless and non-toxic. (The links below go to the sets on sale.)

I will be reviewing Brittany Luiz’s “Lettering With Purpose” in the next few weeks. I’m about a third of the way reading it but have to try out all of her wonderful and easy to follow instructions. The photographs in the book are incredibly inspiring and I look forward to putting pen to paper. So, if you too are interested in improving your lettering skills, watch this space.
