Tombow Dual Brush Pen ABT is really just a fibre-tip pen with two tips, one at each end: a flexible brush tip and a fine tip in one marker!
The following colours are included in the set of 6:
- 055 process yellow
- 296 green
- 493 reflex blue
- 725 rhodamine red
- 856 chinese red
- 925 scarlet
The colours are all intermixable: This provides the opportunity to use these base colours to create numerous other colours - a little time to develop the right technique will serve you well!! The inks can provide a watercolour look and in order to use them at various levels of intensity, Tombow has developed a Dual Brush Pen ABT Blender. By using the blender and a little water and, for example, a plastic mixing palette you can premix your colours in advance or you can just mix them directly on your paper substrate after application. You are, then, able to produce either colours of different intensity and new colours altogether or blended colour gradients.
If you require particularly intense watercolour effects we highly recommend the wet-in-wet technique whereby the paper substrate is wetted with water just before you apply your ink - this will result in the colours being either dispersed in colour gradients or they will simply flow into one another.
The brush pens are ideal for very colourful sketches and comic. Illustrations, lettering, card designs and and a whole lot more are at your beck and call with these colourful Tombows!!
