Today I am showing you some basic techniques using Copic Markers. When you use Copic Markers it is best to colour in little circles, instead of back and forth lines. This will prevent streaking. When you colour an image, turn your paper over to see that you have even coverage on the back.
When adding a second colour in the same family of colour you can ‘feather’ the colour in to your image. This is when you take your marker and put it at the edge of your image a lightly brush it over your image. Then take your lighter colour and in small circles colour into your darker colour. This will blend the 2 colours together. You can repeat this step with a 3rd colour in the same family.
If you want to learn more about Copic Markers I am teaching 2 classes this month at Scrapbooks By Design in Toronto! On June 20th, the Copic Marker 101 class is $50 and includes 5 Ciao markers and a Black Memento Ink Spot. I show you a few different techniques and we make 3 cards.
On June 27th, in the Copic Marker 201 class I introduce the Blender Markers and show you a few techniques using it and the Blender solution, plus a few different things as well!! This class is $25. You must take the Copic Marker 101 class first.
