promarker tutorial part 1.

good evening all, not long back from alton towers.we had a fab time and with living 5 mins away we get home little man was about 2cms too short for the new ride 13 so hopefully next tonight no card but instead a promarker tutorial to share with you, if you want have had this ready for a few days but have been awaiting permission from whiff of joy as i am using a whiff of joy stamp.thankyou katharina for your kind permission to let me share this with my the fab stamp is a whiff of joy and is called feel better in the morning, you can find it here.

so first off i have stamped my image onto rymans 200gsm smooth bright white coated card with momento ink.

then i colour his hands and face all over with IVORY.

then nearly all over with BLUSH.

then add some DUSKY PINK.

then a little SOFT PEACH.

for the cheeks PASTEL PINK, it won`t look this strong in a minute.

take your IVORY and go all over in small circular movements to blend the colours together so there is no obvious lines, you may need to do this a couple of times.

now for the hair.1st use COCOA all over.

next use CHESTNUT, nearly all over again leaving some cocoa showing where you want the light to be.

then i use WALNUT nearly all over the chestnut, you don`t need to be to precise.

then i use SHALE all round the edge and the ends of the hair and under the hat where the shade and darkest hair would be.

take you COCOA again and then as with the skin use small circular movements all over until you have blended to your liking.

now for the chair and table.i have used the same colours for both.
first i used SANDSTONE all over.

then i use CARAMEL nearly all over.

then COCOA where the shadows and darker areas would be.

then a little CHESTNUT where the very darkest shade would be.

then take your SANDSTONE and again using small circular movements go over the entire area as many time as you need until you are happy with the blending.
well thats it for part 1.
i hope you have found it of some help, i know there are probably loads of other people who are far, far better at colouring than me, lol but i thought it would be nice to share with you how i do
i hope you agree :)
i will be back with part 2 hopefully tomorrow.
enjoy the rest of your evenings.
luv coops.xxxx
