Winsor & Newton Water Colour Markers are an outstanding range of highly pigmented water-based markers which deliver Winsor & Newton’s superb colour performance with added precision.
Expertly crafted with a twin tip, the markers enable artists to achieve unrivalled definition and control with water colours. Each marker has a fine point on one end and a flexible brush nib on the opposite, helping you create a variety of stunning, sweeping line thicknesses and superior detailing. The colour is easily blended with water to create soft and vibrant water colour washes.
The markers have been specially formulated using fine quality artists’ pigments. They not only offer incomparable vibrancy, flow and blending ability, but they also provide excellent permanence and durability far superior to their dye-based marker equivalents.

For optimum results, use them with Winsor & Newton Watercolour Paper, which provides excellent lifting properties to further enhance the blending abilities and flow of the markers. Alternatively Bockingford Watercolour Paper can be used.

I had anticipated that I would be able to soften a line drawn with these so called
watercolour pens. Otherwise they are a useful tool to have. Marion Campbell (Edinburgh, United Kingdom) on 20 Sep 2014
Ken Bromley's replies: Winsor & Newton recommend using their watercolour marker pads for best results when blending these markers. http://www.artsupplies.co.uk/item-winsor-&-newton-watercolour-marker-pads.htm
I have been using these markers since June. They are expensive felt tip pens which I find impossible to use as demonstrated on the video. I bought twelve colours and tried hard with them doing various subjects but without much success. In taking the tops off the pens I found some fell apart pulling the inside out. They were easily fixed but messy. The colours are Cotman and not Professional watercolours. A Randalls (Bournemouth) on 16 Oct 2014
Ken Bromley's replies: I am sorry you have been having problems with your markers. W&N do advise that for best results for blending the markers, to use their watercolour marker pads. With regards to the markers coming apart when you take the lids off. We are happy to replace any markers where this is a problem, just contact us and we can sort that out for you.
Like some other reviewers, I first found it quite difficult to see how I was going to use these markers. I have persevered and I find that I get on with them better and better and that I find more and more ways to use them. They are fantastic for adding detail at the end of a watercolour painting; brilliant for putting transparent washes on to existing paint and also for creating a line that you can then fade away with your brush. I do find I can draw a line and then paint it out. That was a problem to start with but now I seem to manage very well. I bought 12 of these colours to start with and now I want the entire range!
