Blending Tombow Dual Tips: Favorite Color Combos
It’s no secret that I love my Tombow Dual Brush Pens. There are so many techniques you can do with them, and blending colors is one of my favorites. I’m going to share with your 3 of my favorite color combinations and I hope they will become your favorites too!
But first, let’s talk about how to blend. You’ll need a Tombow Blending Palette, or some other smooth plastic surface like a ziplock bag and your brush pens.
To blend, spread your darker color onto the blending palette. You will use the lighter color to pick up some of the darker color from the palette and then you’re ready to write.
So, grab your brush pens and let’s blend!
Favorite Color Combo One
My first favorite combination is also known as the galaxy effect. Here are the two Tombow Brush Pens you will need: no. 685 and no. 373.
Spread no. 685 (purple shade) onto your blending palette. Using no. 373 (teal shade), pick up some color from the palette and write. These two colors blend together to achieve a beautiful blue/purple shade. Isn’t it beautiful?!
Now, this one is my absolute favorite because of this:
Take it a step further and add a star pattern inside the letters with a white Gelly Roll Pen. So fun!
Favorite Color Combo Two
The next combination makes me smile! It’s so bright and cheerful. Here are the two Tombow Brush Pens you will need: no. 933 and no. 055.
Spread your darker color (orange) onto the blending palette. Using the lighter color (yellow), pick up some of the orange from the palette and start writing. This combination creates such a bright yellow that just makes you smile!
Favorite Color Combo Three
My third favorite color combinations includes my favorite shade of pink. Here are the two Tombow Brush Pens you’ll need: no. 725 and no. 873.
Again, you’ll spread your darker color on the blending palette and pick up color with the lighter color. These two colors look so amazing together! I did the let the darker color run out (by not picking up anymore color off the palette) to achieve the two different shades in the words.
By now, you might be thinking- “Doesn’t this ruin my pens?” NO! That’s what so great about Tombow Brush Pens. They are self-cleaning. Just rub the pen on paper until it’s normal color comes back.
So, grab your pens and give these a try! Which one is your favorite?
