I have to confess that watercolor, hands-down, is my all-time favorite means to color and I own a variety of different watercolor tools because each serves a different purpose, depending on my project and the method I need. I love using the Kuretake Gansai Tambi for washes and coloring large expanses of area, and the Peerless are super easy and compact enough to take with me when I travel or have a small project that I just need to quickly swipe some gorgeous color onto.

Then along came the ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers, and, well, to make a long story short… they also had to come live at my house. *cheeky grin* Because they are awesome and fun in a completely different way–the points of the brush tips can get into such tight spots!  They really come to life on watercolor paper, so I suggest stocking up and snagging yourself a waterbrush, too–I recently became a fan of the small/detailer H20, especially for stamped images, because of the control.
