Watercolor Technique, Markers and Stamps

Artful Adventures Watercolor Techniques with Markers and StampsToday’s artful adventure video takes us further into the world of watercolor techniques which we are exploring this week.  We’ll use markers and stamps, and we’ll discover how to achieve effects with the assistance of tools such as water brushes, blender pens, or misting with water.

We’ll also look at a 2-step stamping process, as well.  If you aren’t familiar with 2-step stamping, it is where a completed images is stamped in two steps, using two separate stamps.  These can make amazing images.

There are no completed projects shown today, just the watercolor techniques with markers and stamps. Remember, many of these lessons are to help you use the items you have on hand, however I have included some links to basic tools beneath the video.

  1. Love these techniques! Haven’t used them in so long… Just as an aside, copic markers do not work to color directly on stamps. They dry too quickly.

    My favorite watercolor technique is to stamp and emboss an image, then use watercolor pencils and a blending pen to color the image.

    • Heather, that is true, any alcohol based marker would dry too quickly for this type of technique. Now that you bring up Copics, I should also point out that Stazon ink is not a suitable choice to use with them, as it has properties that will cause a build up on the tips of the Copic markers, and require tip replacement much sooner than normal. Thanks for stopping by!
