So let's begin... and once again it is a long post to please sit back and enjoy yourself.

WHAT ARE ZIG REAL BRUSH PENS?

Zig real brush pens is a  product of the Japanese brand Kuretake and is most popular for water colouring. It comes in a single colours as well as in sets of 12, 24, 36, 48 60 and 80.




WHAT IS IT USED FOR??

Zig real brush pens/markers can used to make beautiful illustrations, , stamped images, water coloured backgrounds, calligraphic writing. It has soft nylon brush instead of a nib and one can manuveour the pens and create beautiful designs. The marker is Xylene free and odour less. It has  vibrant hue and gives a transparent effect . IT IS NOW POPULARLY USED BY CRAFTERS FOR COLOURING STAMPED IMAGES.



WHAT TYPE OF PAPER IS NEEDED FOR ZIG MAKERS??
It works on card stock that has a matte effect. Water colour papers give wonderful results.
These are also good for Iris paper.
The paper are available here



WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE.???

Proper storage and usage can give a longer shelf life. I have been using mine for more than a year.

HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM OTHER MAKERS??

Each have there own quality. It has real soft nylon bristle unlike others that have a felt tip pen hence the name real brush. It is xylene free and odourless.


IS IT POCKET FRIENDLY

Of course yes. Its a good crafty investment.

CAN BE USED ON HEAT EMBOSSED IMAGES???

yes you use them to colour on heat embossed image.


Other qualities 

The brush tip is so fine that you can use it paint thin lines and also make paint thick lines by applying pressure. Hence its good for decorative writing.



Blending is beautiful with Zig Real Brush pens. It gets saturated with water and gives even blending of two  similar colours  and even contrasting colours. The shades can be darkened or lightened by use of water or by repeated colouring.



One can apply colours directly on paper and blend with another colour of lighter shade or use water.You can also rub a little colour on a block and pick it up with a brush and apply on the image. this method gives better results.


These can be used to create lovely backgrounds for your cards.


WHICH INK SHOULD BE USED TO STAMP IMAGES FORWATER COLOURING?
Any water proof ink will do . Versafine onyx black, Archival Jet black are good. But all water proof inks will give you the good result.



Drawback

I could find only one drawback . The colour sets in the paper quickly and so becomes difficult to blend if not worked upon fast for blending. Then repeated colouring pills the paper. So it is best to mix colours with water before applying on paper or saturated the area to be coloured with water to avoid patchy painting.

I would highly recommend these markers to all those who love water colouring .... very good for beginners who are apprehensive of water colouring and can make beautiful projects with them.
