What Paper Should I Use For Colouring With Promarkers?
To achieve the best finish, you really need a great bright white smooth cardstock or paper. I buy mine from Rymans at 5.99 for 50 A4 sheets and usually on 3 for 2! Letraset also sell their own that is for the specific use of Promarkers.
- Remember, Promarkers leave a lot of ink on the page.. always have something underneath your work as the colours tend to seep through!
Which Ink Pad Should I Use With Promarkers?
Whenever I stamp, I like to fill the whole A4 sheet with the same impression so that I don't have off-cuts lying about. I love duplicates to use later or send to friends (if the company allows image sharing..) Sometimes I might make a mess of an image... but this is a perfect space to test my colours out on.
I always use a Memento ink pad to stamp images for use with Promarkers. Never use Staz-On! The reason for this, is Staz-On and Promarkers are both alcohol based and will react with each other causing unhelpable bleeding.
You can also use Impress:
When I first started out with Promarkers, I was overwhelmed by the amount of colours available and despite spending a lot of money on what I thought looked right.. I could never achieve the results seen on other creations. To help anyone else that feels like this, I'll be posting some more tips over the following days for Promarkers from my own personal experience :)
