Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)
On behalf of all the Copic Marker Europe Girls... Happy New Year! We wish you every happiness for 2019.
Last month I showed how I colour Northern Skies and a lot of you asked how I did the hat, so I thought I'd show you.
I have used the same Gerda Steiner stamp; Long Time No See. I still have a soft spot for him ;)
Ready? Let's go...
I've coloured the penguin already
I'm starting to lay down the colour dark to light. Sometimes it can be a little intimidating to lay a dark colour down first, so I am planning what I will do with the dark colour with one of the medium ones, in this case, R37
Go over the planning with R39. Because there is some ink laid down already, this will allow the darker colour to blend more easily
Pull the colour out into the white space with R37
Extend the colour further into the white space with R35
Finish the area with R43
At this point I change the way I am laying the ink and go from light to dark. But, no smooth blending, dab lots of little, but variously sized dots all over the hat and pom pom
Repeat with R35, but don't lay down so much ink. Only lay a small amount of this colour on the lighter areas
Next is R37, laying less ink than when you used R35, this time avoiding the lightest areas
Lay a small amount of R39 on the darkest areas of the hat
Finally, add some RV69, but be stingy with this colour and only in the very darkest areas.
