Watercolours With Cass Art*

One of my favourite mediums to work with when it comes to painting is watercolours and although they're not a huge strength of mine, I love their delicate nature and the relaxing vibe they seem to bring whenever I sit down to create some art with them.

Cass Art are an arts and crafts supplier who have a crazy impressive range of watercolour materials as well as many other things, but they recently got in touch and asked if I would like to get involved with their watercolour campaign...can you imagine my excitement? I was able to choose a couple of products from their watercolour range to test out and create some art with so I went for a couple of pretties that I wouldn't normally go for, that I currently don't own anything similar to, to really have a play about and explore something completely new.

I went for these watercolour inks because a huge weakness of mine is pretty bottles that make me feel a bit like a scientist. I chose the primary colours set of inks from a brand called Ecoline who prior to this opportunity I had never heard of before. I researched them before deciding on my chosen products because as I've mentioned in previous posts, going forward with art supplies I'd also like to stick to vegan friendly brands and according to the Vegan Womble arts supplies page, these inks are vegan. The primary set consists of a blue, green, lemon yellow, magenta and black; I had in mind a sort of galaxy animal for my artwork and thought I'd try mixing some colours to achieve a gorgeous range of purple shades. They did not disappoint!



These inks go such a long way as they're incredibly pigmented so one drop of colour packs a real punch. You can water them down, mix them easily to get lots of different shades and they're extremely clean to use due to their lids coming with a glass dropper. I dabbed just two drops of each colour onto a ceramic plate and found it was plenty to create my galaxy horse painting.


I'm also a huge sucker for pens so when I saw these watercolour brush pens again by Ecoline they seemed like the best of both worlds. Again they're vegan and I've never actually learnt any calligraphy with brush pens before so that's something I'll definitely be practising for a future blog post! But something I do like to do whenever I get new pens is swatch them all, as other brands I have tried in the past haven't been true to colour at all and this can cause a problem if you accidentally use a colour you weren't intending to use. These however, are some of the most pigmented, vibrant and true to colour pens I have ever had the pleasure of testing out. I went for the pack of 20 which is great value for money with a pretty decent range of shades, all of the main colours are there and it even comes with a clear blender brush to help blend colours together.

I had such a fun time over the weekend testing these out and I can't wait to create some more pieces with them. The pens especially I think will be fab for sketching with and adding a dash of colour. Since they are a pen form, you can take them out and about with you without having to worry about spilling paints and water everywhere. Now that's an added bonus! If you wanted to check out the products I used I'll link them down below and a huge thankyou to Cass Art for having me on board for the watercolour campaign!


Thanks for reading & take care,
