Photo Tinting With Photo Twin Markers

For all of you who have ever wanted to try tinting black and white photographs, EK Success has made it a whole lot easier.  The new Photo Twin markers allow you to tint any photos just by coloring them with a brush-tip pen. These pens only take seconds to use and the the results are gorgeous. 

Some tips to keep in mind when using the pens:

Matte finished photos will accept the color more readily than glossy.

Do not go over the same spot on the photograph too many times or the dampness of the ink will cause the photo to disintegrate in that spot. Instead, allow the layers of color to dry before you add more.

The large brush tip of the pens works well for most applications, while the fine brush tip allows you to add color to small detail of the photo.

Color the focal point of the photo first. Add color to highlight and not to overwhelm the photo.
