Alcohol Marker Madness

This episode of Clearly The Best focuses on Close To My Heart’s new alcohol based markers. These markers make it so fun and easy to create stunning results in your artwork. The colors blend beautifully, creating lovely shaded images. Take a look at the video to see what I mean….

The markers come in a set of 2 complementary colors for only $5.95/set. Check out the entire color pallet here.
