HOW TO BLEND WITH TOMBOW DUAL BRUSH PENS
The first way to blend with Tombows utilizes 2 color and the blending palette. The belnding palette comes with the pack of dual brush pens and is a plastic coated sheet. If you don’t have one, you can use a Ziploc bag.
Place a dark color onto the blending palette. In my example, I used orange. Then use a lighter color such as yellow to “pick up” some of the darker color. When you letter, the colors will blend as shown below. When the darker color fades, just pick up more and keep going.
The second way to blend is to use the colorless blending pen. The colorless blending pen is N00.
Place one color onto the blending palette and then pick up that color with the colorless blending pen. As you letter, the color will fade from dark to light. creating an ombre effect.
This technique results in the pink lettering, below.
The final way to blend with Tombows is to use the blending palette and multiple colors. This technique is the same as the above except you use the colorless blending pen to pick up multiple colors on the blending palette. I chose yellow, orange and pink.
Pick up each color with the colorless blending pen to create an effect like the one shown below.
