Questions from our Website:
What is the difference between feather and bleed?
Feather and bleed are two different things. Feather refers to ink spreading from where it was laid down. Bleed refers to marker or ink seeping through paper. Read the Artist Newsletter to learn more and understand preventative measures you can take to keep either from ruining your art.
