The blender pen is a dual tip marker which is filled with clear blending fluid. It can be used on ink pads, markers, watercolour pencils and chalks.
The tip of the pen can be cleaned by simply scribbling ink color (from the last use) onto a scrap paper until it flows clear. Even though the tip appears stained, future performance will not be affected.
USING THE BLENDER PEN WITH INK PADS
Stamp an image using a water based dye pad. Use the blender pen to lightly stroke the outline color into the inside areas. This will result in an image with several tones of the same color; for example, a deep blue image with lighter, "watered down" blue inside.
USING THE BLENDER PEN WITH MARKERS
- Stamp an image by coloring the rubber die of the stamp with water based markers. Pull color from the outline to the center areas by stroking with the blender pen, as above.
- Use a blender pen to apply marker ink which has been scribbled onto a plastic plate, blending the colors just like you would blend watercolor paints with a brush.
- Use a blender pen to soften the stroke marks left behind when you have colored an area with markers.
USING THE BLENDER PEN WITH WATERCOLOR PENCILS
The blender pen is perfect for blending watercolor pencil colors, eliminating the need for water and a paintbrush. The colors intensify and blend smoothly, and the paper does not buckle from being over-moistened.
USING THE BLENDER PEN WITH CHALK
Blend and moisten chalk colors with the blender pen to intensify colors and work the chalk into the surface of the paper. It will not need spray fixative to remain in place.
