I love using my Tombow Dual Brush pens along with a Blending palette itself to create a watercolor effect. I love these Derwent waterbrushes. I also recommend the brush that comes with this Koi Watercolor set. I have loved lettering with the brushes that come in this set as well. In the video I also talk about how this technique would be awesome with these Dr.Ph.Martin colors.
