So far I find them to be wonderful. They remind me very much of Copic Ciao markers. They are hex shaped, and large like Copic Ciao, and also have the bullet and chisel tips. You can replace the bullet tip on the Spectrum Noir markers to a brush tip if that is what you prefer, but I don't plan to do that, except possibly to experiment down the road some time. For now, I prefer to use them "as is" to show everyone just how well you can color and blend with the bullet tips.
Even though I have the entire collection, I want my first few projects to draw from just a few of the Spectrum sets, so you can see that you really can color beautifully with a limited number of markers and build your sets up as choose or can afford. On today's card, I used the 6 Piece Blues set and the 6 Piece Greens set.
For my card today, these are the markers I would have used to achieve similar results. There are probably better matches to the Spectrum colors, but these seem like the closest ones in my collection.
With the die templates still in place, sponge around the edges using Memento Bamboo Leaves.
Thank you for visiting. I hope your day is wonderful!
