Do you know "watercolor pencils", a hybrid painting material of colored pencils and paints? It looks like a colored pencil, but when you trace it with a wet brush, the color melts like paint.
This time I found that this is sold at the 100-yen shop Can Do. We will introduce it together with the "water brush pen" that is recommended for use in combination.
Can Do watercolor pencils & water brush pens12 colors are included and you can see it at a glance with ordinary colored pencils. There is no particular discomfort in writing.
However, if you trace it with a wet brush, it will bleed like a watercolor paint. It is also possible to add delicate color strength and mix multiple colors. It is also interesting that the taste changes depending on the degree of bleeding.
You can use an ordinary brush, but a water brush pen is the best for watercolor pencils that do not stain the brush so much. I also got this at Can Do.
The water brush pen is a pen-shaped brush whose handle is a bottle of water. When you press the shaft, water is transmitted to the tip of the brush and it functions like a wet brush.
The color on the brush tip can be removed with water on a sponge or tissue, so you don't have to wash the brush.
In other words, if you have a watercolor pencil and a pen, you can draw a picture that is almost like a watercolor. Unlike ordinary watercolors, it does not require a palette or brush-washing bucket, so it is convenient for sketching outdoors or on the road.
Why don't you get the hang of it during the winter and go out to sketch when it gets warm?
