Thank you for making this! Ever since I got mine, I've been thinking I bought the wrong brand because I have to be so careful to get a consistent white line. I am so glad/relieved that you mention right at the beginning that skips and inconsistency will most likely happen with any!

I will definitely be trying some of those alternatives.

I have heard so much about whether it is right to use white or not in watercolour but I don't think it really matters. Art is what you make of it. I'm a newbie on Deviantart and I enjoy following you so much. Your tutorials have made me a lot more confident not just in following your directions but also to have a go at my own art. As you say, your tutorials take a lot of time to prepare, I for one appreciate all the effort that you and others got through to make art easier for others. And for that I thank you very much ♥

Thank you very much for your encouraging comment, means a lot when I know I'm not making it in vain.

Wish you a lot of inspiration (:

Do you ever use Gouache? I find it works really well for both paintings and drawings ^^
jane-beata's avatar
I've heard artists saying all the good things about gouaches, but personally I didn't get to try it out yet. The first decision was between white ink and gouache and I chose the permanent opaque ink, ever since I didn't need to look for alternatives, it's perfectly suitable for both hard and fluid media (:
Pandannabelle's avatar
Sounds like a good alternative :) We don't have inks here however, so I have to stick to gouache. Thanks for the reply :)

brilliant, i alwasy thought my gel pens were a bit dodgey, think you just inspired a bit of confidence in me (but maybe not enough to upload any of my watercolours with white gel pen ....truely dodgey!) many thanks, great as always!

Glad it helps, keep on practicing (: Yes those pens get very annoying :(

I sometimes use a (white) corrector for lining my paintings, and it works, and is very visible. :)

Very nice tutorial, I especially liked the materials comparison at the end.

Great tutorial! This gives me plenty of ideas as I have never used white gel pens or even knew about them!
