Faber Castell Watercolor Markers Demonstration and Review

I love anything Faber-Castell makes. They have really good products even if they are very expensive. The best thing about these watercolor markers is they are lightfast. Not many markers are light fast. The colors are super vibrant and there is a ton of ink that can be drawn out from one marking on the paper. The markers come with two tips a brush and a thin line marker. There are only 30 colors, but most of them are unique and they can be combined to make more colors.

The markers can be used three ways as illustrated below. They can be drawn on a different surface and then painted on. The markers can be used as straight markers, but that is super bold. I would use them sparingly when doing that. Or then can be drawn on the surface and then spread. I like C the best below, drawn on the surface and then spread, but I also like A a lot also.

Here are the song titles to Taylor Swifts 1989 (Taylor's Version) I did in watercolor. I drew the color on a Yasutomo dish and then used a water brush to spread the color.

What is really cool is because Faber-Castell has the same color system for all their supplies the markers can be used with the pencils. All You Had to Do Was Stay shadows were made with pencil while I wish You Would and Wildest Dreams were made with the fine tip of the watercolor marker.
