I made this little fuzz ball with my Tombow Duel Brush Pens.  I blended the colours mostly with the blender pen that comes with the kit rather than the water brush (which I purchased separately).  This gave me a darker, richer colour.  I was surprised as I hadn’t really used the blender pen very much and found that it works quite nicely, especially for smaller areas.

This is the first time I have used the Tombows to paint any wildlife and I’m still getting a feel for the pens.  I have to work really fast as the colours can dry very quickly and if you want to blend properly you have to work area by area.  I’m kind of used to just taking my time and layering all the dark colours over the entire animal first but with Tombows you can only work as I said in small areas at a time.  Anyway, the whole process is very fast and I started and finished this in only about 90 minutes or so.

Oky dokey, here’s some of my artwork I’ve been doing this weekend with my new Tombow pens.  As you can see the options are endless with all these lovely bright colours.  I’ve found they seem to blend better on thick paper rather than the watercolour paper which is strange considering they are watercolour pens.  Hmmmm, will have to keep experimenting.

Tombow Duel Brush Pens

Yay!  They finally arrived today!  I’m so excited to try these out.  I purchased the full 96 pens set and the colours are so vibrant and stunning.  The pens come with a brush tip on one end and a pen tip on the other.  The kit comes with a colourless blender but I have purchased some water brushes which work much better. (Water brushes are like an acrylic brush with a  screw on little container of water which allows the water to flow down the brush when squeezed).

As you can see below the pens blend together so easily with the water brush.
