By | February 7, 2019

Stampin’ Up!’s  Watercolor Pencils (Watercolour Pencils) are great for colouring in a stamped image.

The recommended ink to use with Watercolor Pencils is StazOn.   StazOn comes in Jet Black and is an archival and permanent ink. It dries quickly and is waterproof, which is important when watercolouring.  It isn’t quite so vital to use this particular ink with Blender Pens as there is only a little liquid in this pen.  It is very important to use StazOn ink when using Aqua Painters as it won’t smudge your image when it is mixed with water.  StazOn can be used with rubber and photopolymer stamps, but it will stain photopolymer stamps.  To clean your stamps, you will need to use StazOn Cleaner.  So that you don’t damage your photopolymer stamp, wash the StazOn Cleaner off the stamps after use with water and mild detergent.

You may notice that in the video below, I use Memento ink. Sometimes you can use this ink when using a Blender Pen as long as the ink is really dry.  You can leave it to dry or use a Heat Tool to speed up the process.  I wouldn’t recommend using Memento ink with Aqua Painters.

Here is a dragonfly card with a three-tone watercolour background created with the Watercolor Pencils and Aqua Painters.  If you wish to colour with the Aqua Painters then you would need to use either Shimmery White Cardstock or Watercolor Paper.  When you check out the dragonfly card post, you will also read more information about the paper options you have when you use water.
