We realise you may have never seen or used products like this before so we have put together a few hints, tips and techniques to test out and get the best from these supplies.
These Spectrum Noir metallic markers will provide an ultra-smooth and radiant metallic finish for all your art projects. These markers are extremely pigmented and will give you a brilliant opaque coverage, plus they are quick-drying and will work on virtually any material including black card, glass and ceramics. The ink is oil-based and will not fade, keeping your work vibrant and packed with colour for a long time to come.
The Sakura Gelly Roll pen contains a special water-based pigment that provides intense colour that will never fade. Thanks to the unique gel ink technology, the ink flow will always be consistent without having to exert any extra pressure. This pen draws brilliantly and even has a special effect under blacklight! The creamy, smooth and opaque ink is ideal for any drawing, doodling and colouring project on dark or light paper.
Things To Try...
~ Get things started- shake and pump to activate the Spectrum Noir markers! As these markers are oil based they may take a little longer to activate. (Also worth noting the POSCA pen will need activating in the same way).
~ Once the metallic markers have dried they are permanent. This means you don’t have to worry about erasing your pencil line work until afterwards as an eraser will have no effect on these pens.
~ Blend fast! It’s best to work fast and while the paint is still wet if you want to experiment with blending.
~ Each layer will dry fully opaque. Once fully dry you can go back over with another colour.
~ Oil based paints don’t react to water. This means you can use them to decorate things like glass, ceramics and fabric.
~ The black POSCA dries matt onto the black paper which creates a great contrast to the metallic finish of the other markers.
~ It will also come in handy for correcting any mistakes or cutting back into places you want to add extra details and fine lines to.
~ Go slow! In contrast to the Spectrum Noir makers, it’s advised to work with more patience with the Gelly Roll pens for the best results:~ Use slow strokes to ensure an even flow of vibrant ink.~ Allow time for them to dry fully to avoid smudging.
~ These pens are super vibrant and opaque so they layer up nicely on top of the other markers for some fun effects.

I think when doing doodle art it’s just about freeing your mind and go for it without over thinking. The most difficult part is getting started, once you start then you just let out your crazy idea and fill the page with your favourite pen.
Self-Reflection – If I remember it correctly, this piece is one of the first few pieces I created when I started to get involved in doodle art. I tried to use different colour for this piece to make it look more unique instead of just one colour and the result is pretty amazing.
