Discover the versatility of the wide range of DeSerres markers. From fineliners to broad tipped alcohol-based drawing markers, these pens are great for the amateur, the illustrator and everyone in between.

Compare and contrast: Fineliners and Mangos are a great match

When using markers, the type of paper you use is as important as the marker. Markers work best on a bleed-proof marker paper. This type of paper allows you to flood an area with ink and go over it, again and again, to blend shades without the edges of the ink feathering or the paper pilling.

 

Alcohol-based markers : DeSerres twin-tip and Mango markers are offered individually and in sets in a wide range of vibrant colours and hues. The twin-tip markers have a bullet point on one end and a chisel tip on the other and the Mango markers have a single chisel tip. Both markers feature an ergonomic triangular barrel. These alcohol-based markers blend very well with one another and the transparent ink can be layered to build up tones.

 

Colourless blenders: Despite the name, the colourless blender marker is better suited for lifting colours rather than blending them as the colourless blending solution repels colour. Use a blender marker to gently lift colour out of an area where you have drawn outside the lines, to lighten areas or add highlights. Try applying the colourless blender ink to a rubber stamp and stamping over areas of your drawing to create a subtle texture. To add very pale shades of a colour, press the blender to your marker tip to lift some ink and colour with the blender.

 

Water-based fineliners: DeSerres fineliner markers have a 0.4 mm line width and are great for detailed drawings, sketches and for writing. Because these pens are water-based, they can also easily be blended with water and a paintbrush on most types of paper. Grab a water reservoir paintbrush and add these markers to your urban sketching kit. You’ll be able to instantly add watercolour effects to your drawings on the go.

 

Together : Fineliners and alcohol-based markers can both be used to great advantage in the same drawing. The alcohol-based Mango markers will not smudge your fineliner drawings as you layer techniques and colours. Try mixing both in your next project!
