How-To use Tombow Dual Brush Markers as watercolors!!

Do you have Tombow Brush Pens and want to learn new ways to use them? Here is a fun project you can try with just a few supplies! Let’s get started!

Materials needed for this project:

  • Tombow Dual Brush Pens
  • Tombow Blending Palette or Ceramic Tile (for placing color on)
  • Watercolor or Mix Media Paper
  • Waterproof pen (if you don’t have one, that’s ok, you can trace in the lines after you are done painting.)
  • Water brush or dry watercolor brush
  • Jar of clean water

First, you want to come up with a design. I’m going to draw a simple rainbow for this activity. The Tombow markers I am using are from the bright palette collection.

Next, you want to start swatching out your colors on the blending palette or ceramic plate. I placed my colors in the order of which I will use them.

Now, start you masterpiece! Remember, clean off your brush after every color you use to stop the colors from blending in together. This prevents you from making a whole different color than desired.

**Blending Tip** While the colors are still wet on the paper, add the second color and watch the magic happen as the two colors meet!

Congratulations, you now have another way to use your Tombow Markers. Please share your artwork and tag me on Instagram! Follow the link to take you there now

I would love for you to tell me what you think. Please leave me a comment and thanks for sticking with me!!

Lyra aqua brush review

Upon my recent visit to Ross, I found these brush markers in the art section of the store.

So i took them home to give them a try.

So out of the package they reminded me of tombow dual brush markers. They have a similar body from end to end.

I will use these two set of colors for comparison. The Tombows are from the Bright Palette collection. As you can also see the tips on both ends are incredibly similar. Top is Lyra and bottoms is Tombow.

Picture of back to show any bleeding.

So as you can see everything is incredibly similar. So if you don’t have enough for Tombow Primary pack (12 colors) which are 16.47 on Amazon right now, you could get the Lyra (12 colors) pack for 12.75 and you’re getting a great deal! I hope my review has encouraged you to try out the Lyra Aqua brush markers! I have also linked a video swatching the colors. Please like and subscribe!

Disclaimer: I was not given these markers, I bought them with my own money and am giving my honest review on these.
