After I had the base layer on I decided that I needed some additional color and began applying yellow, red, and green to the mix. Then added a white gel pen and black paint. Everything that I have added has been either a gel pen or in the markers. At first I wasn't crazy about the page but I have continued working on it adding some doodles and in the next post I will share where I am with the page. I'm not sure if I will leave it or try to add something more.
I had hoped that I could use the markers for a travel set of paints, I may still be able to do so if I used watercolor paper but found that on this bristol paper the paint did not want to mix and blend particularly well. That doesn't bode well for travel painting. I'm going to have to do more experimentation to see how I feel about the media. Don't get me wrong, I love the markers and have used them frequently when doing layouts to add interest and detail especially when I am doodling but that wasn't the goal of this test. So......... we will see how my next test goes.
I just discovered that Montana also carries an empty paint marker and I'm curious how it will work with the Golden High Flow Paint. I'm going to have to read what the manufacturer recommends.
