Start by painting in hearts or any shape with your watercolors. Then drop in small droplets of the rubbing alcohol. It’s as easy as that.


The bookmarks are my favorite! Which one of these Tombow Galaxy Palette projects inspired you today?

Supplies USED:

  1. THICK PAPER: I used my Mixed media sketchbook to illustrate in and for the bookmarks, I used a good 140lb heavy watercolor paper
  2. WATERCOLORS: Any watercolor set you own will work. Today I am using the Tombow Galaxy Dual brush pens which are water-based markers and great to watercolor with. I like that the colors in this set are all chosen to coordinate with each other.
  3. RUBBING ALCOHOL: I reached for rubbing alcohol or isopropyl alcohol that I had in my medicine cabinet. This is easily available in grocery stores too.
  4. PAINTBRUSH: You will need a good paintbrush (I used a Round no 8 one) and an old scruffy paintbrush to dip in the alcohol.
  5. MISC: Other items like stencils, cotton swabs, or an old toothbrush will come in handy.
