Here at Marker Supply we are always looking for new ways to use the markers we carry. It’s extra fun when we get to see what you create with them. One of our favorite blogs Oh So Beautiful Paper featured a DIY tutorial on jazzing up your holiday place settings using Sakura’s Pentouch markers on leather as napkin rings. It’s such an easy way to add a personal touch to your holiday festivities.

Inspiration Monday : Broad Edge Calligraphy

This week I wanted to share some beautiful broad edge calligraphy work. The following pieces show how much variety you can get with the double ended ZIG Memory System Calligraphy markers. The calligraphy “S” shaped flowers are a favorite and really easy to achieve (I plan on showing you how in one of our upcoming video blogs!). Enjoy!

Inspiration Monday : Watercolor Brush

Clean Color Real Brush

Keeping with the brush lettering theme this week I’m sharing some work done with the Clean Color Real Brush markers. These markers are one of my favorites for sure. They feature actual bristles on the tip, meaning they look and feel like a real paint brush. The difference between a paint brush and the marker is that the watercolor dye paint is in the marker already! So there’s no need to dip the pen in paint or water (you could though if you want to create even more unique marks!).

Here’s how it works, you make your mark with the Clean Color Real Brush marker on watercolor paper and then take a wet paint brush or a ZIG BrusH20 (which you should also check out if you do watercolor art.) and paint over your mark.…

Inspiration Monday : Brush Lettering

Our blog hiatus is over! And we’re going to start 2013 with a new ongoing project. Every Monday we’ll be posting some artwork done using the markers we carry. My hope is to share some unique techniques and inspire you to use your markers in new ways!

Brush lettering is a quick way to spice up a letter or note. By applying different pressure as you write, you can create contrasting lines. The examples below were done with the ZIG Brushable marker. Its unique, two-toned, double-ended brush barrel allows a quick way to create depth using one marker with simple layering.…

Pebeo Porcelaine Markers on Postcard Mug

Postcard Mug

In the age of digital communication it’s always fun to receive a handwritten letter in the mail, especially when it’s from a loved one who is off traveling. When we stumbled upon this adorable idea by Bailey Doesn’t Bark our minds were blown. They have created a Mug that also serves as a Postcard! When you order the mug you also receive a Pebeo Porcelaine 150 Marker in black to write your message. As with all the Pebeo Porcelaine Markers once dry and baked the written marks are dishwasher safe. Such a cute idea! For more information and more color options of the Pebeo Porcelaine Markers visit the Pebeo section of our website here : http://www.markersupply.com/pepama.html

Cute Summer Project for Girls Room

Summer is a time for crafting! With no school and time to do some creating, school teacher Jennifer took decided to redecorate her daughter’s bed room.  We’re very excited she shared her wall art project with us.

Inspired by Pottery Barn artwork, Jennifer found a less expensive way to create the looks seen in this season’s catalog using different mediums and markers.

She started by purchasing a variety of scrapbook papers to match the bedding in her daughter’s room. She then used stencils, templates, and our Greeting Farm Forest Friends Stamp Set to create little scenes on each page.  To make the stamps pop, she used the Art & Graphic markers on white card stock. …

Downtown Nashville Watercolor Painting

One of the newest products we’ve added are the Clean Color Markers.  At a recent Trade Show we wanted to feature the new markers so we contacted artist Derek McCrea and asked him to create a Nashville themed piece of art. With the Clean Color II Brush and Double Ended Markers he painted a beautiful scene of Nashville’s Broadway Street downtown. We were very impressed. Below you will see the image followed by a detailed review of his experience using the markers. Marker Supply would like to thank Derek again for the wonderful artwork! Enjoy!
