About the Range
AquaTint pens are filled with bright water-soluble dye-based ink, dispensed through a fine nylon brush. Their colours can be applied as accurately or freely as you want, then blended out with water for an amazing result every time.They are perfect for a wide range of Mixed Media and distress background effects.
See How It's Done
Learn a fun technique with our new AquaTint brush pens in this tutorial from design team member Jo McKelvey! She uses her AquaTint brush pens, used to colour directly on to a stamp and combined with water to create stunning watercolour effects. This technique can be used for all sorts of papercraft and mixed media projects, as well as lovely additions to home decor!
Gather the supplies needed to create this project:
- AquaTint pens
- stamps & sentiments of your choice
- spray or spritz bottle with clean water
- paintbrush (or waterbrush)
Watercolour with the stamp
Scribble your chosen AquaTint pen colours directly over the stamp.
Stamp on to dry cardstock.
Using a damp brush, pull the colour out.
Make it messy
Place a piece of scrap cardstock down on the table, turn the cardstock away from you and spritz the bottom of the image so the colour runs.
Allow to dry thoroughly.
Make an extra (optional)
Before cleaning your stamp, spritz some card and stamp onto it.
Drag the colour out with a Clear Sparkle pen.
There will not be as much colour to drag out as the ink would have already moved with water.
