Challenge: Shattered Self
Cool down this summer with this refreshing blue palette and add a little shimmer to your work with a couple of metallic supplies to experiment with.
What was in the box?
Kuretake Wink Of Luna – http://amzn.to/2wrY74I
This brush pen is the perfect tool for adding vibrant colour and a subtle metallic effect to your artwork. The brush tip is a real bristled tip, so variations in pressure can produce broader or finer strokes.
Staedtler Noris Colour Pencils (12) – http://amzn.to/2vka3VM
The first coloured pencil with an Anti-Break System (ABS). The protective coating reinforces the lead and increases break resistance. A range of brilliant colours, in a pencil that is easy to sharpen.
Artline 200 Fineline 0.4 – http://amzn.to/2vNbJu0
The instant drying, blur proof ink makes this plastic nibbed pen ideal for drawing. The fine fibre-tip draws a 0.4mm line enabling detailed outline work.
Artline 210 Medium Liner 0.6 – http://amzn.to/2wGn0J4
The 210 has a slightly larger tip, making it ideal for drawing where bold lines are required. The ink is the same water based, instant drying, blur proof ink as the 200, but we opted for an extra splash of colour.
Artline Metallic Poster Marker – http://amzn.to/2wFVnzK
This vivid opaque, water based, metallic pigment ink has superior water and fade resistant performance. It allows over-painting without bleed-through, but easily washes off non-porous surfaces.
Kuretake Post Chalk Dry Wipe Marker – http://amzn.to/2fr3Ovv
A water-based pigment marker, in which the chalky lines appear gradually after drawing. The 1.2mm bullet tip is especially effective on black, but can also be used to add highlights to your work.
