Hello everyone! I have some fun products that I’m reviewing today. Arteza contacted me and asked if I’d like to review some of their art supplies. They sent me a 48 pack of their Real Brush Pens. I have the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, which I really love, but I’ve heard some great things about Arteza’s Real Brush Pens. They also sent a two pack of their watercolor pads, a set of bone folders, and three packs of Holographic Chunky Glitter.
First I swatched all the Real Brush Pens onto a piece of the watercolor paper that they sent me. The colors are all vibrant and beautiful, and I really like the names they came up with for their colors. I had some difficulty getting the colors to move on their watercolor paper with a water brush–I wanted to achieve a gradient from each of the pens. However, I found that if I first dipped the pen into clean water and then onto the paper, I could create a nice gradient effect. Also, Bristol Smooth paper is a great paper to use with these brushes. The coating on the paper allows you to blend and move the pigments beautifully.
To color my flowers, I put down my lightest pigments first using this technique and slowly built up my colors. I left a lot of white space on my flowers for highlights. To color in my light blue background around my flowers, I scribbled the True Blue pen onto my acrylic block and diluted it with water and painted around my flowers with the water brush that came with the pens.
I really enjoyed using all of the products they sent me. On their website they say that their goal is to provide quality, affordable art supplies to put into the hands of the creators, and in my opinion, they have accomplished this goal with these products that they sent to me.
Poppy Birthday Card:
Real Brush Pens used: Rouge Pink A190, Red A101, Light Magenta A184, Walnut Brown A164, Green Tea A154, Crocodile A126, Olive Green A146, True Blue A168
On the inside of the card I painted a strip of the same watercolor paper with the Rouge Pink pen. I again dipped the pen in clean water to lighten the pigment and then colored it along the paper until the pen’s natural pigment came out. I then adhered it to the inside of my card with liquid glue.
