  1. I too have been using Prismacolor pencils for about 45 years! I love their vivid and varied colors and the smooth way that they blend so nicely! I recently got a clear Wink of Stella pen, which I love, but seeing the comparison with the Spectrum Noir marker, I think I may have to give that one a try also. Thanks again for all your helpful information! Keep it coming. I really enjoy it!

  2. I am only just starting out on this adventure and have so much to look forward to. I love watercolor techniques and love seeing everything where great color blending can be achieved.

  3. My choice is colored pencils. I am marker challenged. LOL I see beautifully colored stamped images and sigh wishing I could color my images like that. I know that a key component is practice, something I need more of.

  4. At present I don’t have a favorite, but after watching your videos. on zig markers, I just ordered the 80 markers set and I’m sure that THEY will be my favorites. Thank you so much for these 3 videos.

  5. I enjoy the effects I can get with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. For relaxation and crafting away from home I love copic markers, though I’m a newbie and still working on my shading and where shadows would be.

  6. I have to say I love my Copic markers. Still working on my technique. Thanks for the review Jennifer, it’s always nice to hear honest opinions on products and thanks for the chance to win.

  7. I love how easy Distress markers are to work with. J do, however, need to get more practice in with my Copics because I think they could become a favorite if I get better with them.

  8. I am currently using Copic markers for my coloring and love the color choices and I’m getting better with blending!

  9. I used to colour with pencil crayons, but I’m trying to increase my alcohol marker skills (copics + spectrum noir). I’ve admired your and others abilities with watercolours but I haven’t had much luck with them.

  10. Hello! Are you no longer using Peerless Watercolors? I’m sure you are sooo busy and can’t respond, but I was wondering, if so, why?
