Nyctophilia - Love of darkness or night; finding relaxation and comfort in the darkness 🌌 Here are some more galaxy letters I made yesterday. These ones were made with my trusty Artist's Loft watercolors on kraft of course πŸ’

Today I'm chiming in with @calligrabasics for white ink week. One of my favorites lettering mediums, Dr. PH Martins bleed proof white + a dash of water for a watercolor consistency. This prompt is from @josecalligraphy & @thecreativelaura #30yearsofhot100 year 2013, I chose the song cups from @annakendrick47. I actually watched Pitch Perfect last night, so it seemed fitting. I'm obsessed with the soundtrack, and the movies always has me cracking up... no matter how many times I might have already seen it. What movie do you watch over and over again, I love a good movie recommendation 🎬

Here's a small portrait I whipped up during art club, small canvases are so adorable! Shoutout to my members for your great art and for cleaning up today, you're the best πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•. Art: @me_kala_ #art #watercolor #watercolorart #artistsloft #traditionalart

#flowers4rachel @rachelryle once I saw a Rachel's post about this I just thought that I should participate in this! I thought it would be super fun to do! And so I can kill some time! #prismacolor #artistsloft #michaels πŸŒΈπŸŒ»πŸ’πŸŽ¨

A video showing how I blend Artline Stix (same process for Tombows as well)! Please keep reading for materials and other tips! ➑️

β–ͺ️Use watercolor paper! It'll facilitate blending a lot better than regular paper and it won't wrinkle and disintegrate with water. I'm using Artist's Loft watercolor paper.
⚠️ Watercolor paper is textured and it'll probably be hard on your marker tips over time!
β–ͺ️I'm only showing you one letter here, but when I do entire words I only blend one letter at a time - a tip I actually learned from @alissecourter! πŸ’•Letting the ink sit for too long and dry makes it harder to blend out.
β–ͺ️I'm using @mozartsupplies fine tip water brush to blend my ink, but I've also used a small brush dipped in water. A water brush is just more convenient 😊
β–ͺ️If it looks like the darker color is going to overpower the lighter one, I wipe my brush clean and then start blending from the lighter region into the darker region (that's why I occasionally start blending in a new spot on the letter in the video).

And that's it! I hope it helped anyone who has been struggling with marker blending. Any water based marker should work (I've just used Crayola markers before)! This is a really fun and satisfying process, so have at it! πŸ–ŒπŸ’¦
