Bleedthrumanade-Glass Flowers with Letraset Promarkers & Paperblanks


When I did my Glass flowers I messed up the composition.  I use B&W pen & ink most commonly, and I could have lifted the 4-headed Martian (tangle by Sadelle) from the pinwheel flowers (tangle by Ledenzer) through heavy shading.  It didn’t work with color.  There are no mistakes in zentangle but nothing says you can’t get insights or learn from them, lol

So, I eagerly flipped the page, and happily took my second chance from the bleedthrumanade.  I think it could have used more color, but I didn’t want to risk messing up the original. 

I’m getting to the point where I’m disappointed when I don’t have bleed-thru to play with!

  1. Have you tried adding a little water to the page before adding the colours? I've not tried it though. My pens go straight through the paper, although admittedly it isn't very thick like I originally thought.

  2. I haven't tried adding water with the Promarkers. I'm not sure how well that would work with alcohol based markers. I have done a little with water and the Tombow brush pens, which are water-soluable. Generally, though, I prefer to use my pens undiluted. That's just my taste, though, and I suspect I've missed the opportunity for some cool effects!
