Waterbrush vs Watercolor Brush

03/02/2016

Waterbrush and a watercolor brush using the same colors produced different results.

The soft color and faded effect can be put to good use especially in the small confines of a journal. If you want consistent color, fill a waterbrush with watercolor or fountain pen ink. The chamber doesn’t need to be full to work well. Noodler’s would be a good choice since it is economical and can be stretched with the addition of a little water. Use the same ink in your fountain pen for a monochromatic piece. Or pick contrasting colors for playful pages. Aqua and peach anyone?

“Since high school, too, I have written only with fountain pens. Buying new pens and trying out new inks are among the little joys of life that contribute as much — and sometimes more — to one’s happiness than the “big” things.”   Dennis Prager
