I have been off line for a while and missed the discussion on painting bevels last month. I thought a photo would show a quick and dirty way of doing them without tape. This is an artists watercolor marker by Windsor and Newton. Simply wipe the marker parallel with the bevel. Other artist quality markers also work. Don’t use Sharpie markers- they can bleed onto the art. Watercolor bevels are wonderful for accents on original watercolors.

I bought a set of the W/N promarker brush watercolor markers. I've been practicing and they bleed horribly. I've tried different matboards, but they all look awful. Did I get the wrong ones?? These are def. useless for painting bevels.
