Kuretake Zig Brush #24 [staff favorite]

This brush pen is great for laying down lines for your watercolor piece. Check out how our featured artist used it in her piece to define certain areas that were filled with metalic colors. This brush pen features a soft nylon brush tip that can produce a wide range of thick and thin lines, making it a great choice for manga, calligraphy, sumi-e drawings, and more. Its smooth-flowing, water-based pigment ink is water-resistant and lightfast, and the ink cartridge is easy to replace.

SketchBox Signature Flat Water Brush

Retail Value: $5.50 each

Based on your feedback and the success of our first waterbrush we decided to start adding more options to our product line. Introducing our first flat waterbrush! Water brushes made watercolor much more approachable since you can control the flow of water to the tip of the brush. Use this with your new gansai tambi watercolors to add layers of gold and shimmer to your pieces.

Manuscript Gold and Silver Set

Retail Value: $6.95

These are some of the most bold metalic marker pigments available. We tested a lot of metalic markers for this month‘s box and we decided on these for the versatility of their flat tips and bold color. These are great for adding embellishments, calligraphy, and outlining with the gansai tambi colors.
