5 TIPS FOR COLOURING LIKE A PROFESSIONAL
If you’re colouring a stamped image with alcohol-based markers, make sure you use water-based ink. If you’re using water-based markers, you’ll need waterproof ink, such as StazOn. If you get this the wrong way round, your images will run!
When blending two colours onto the same area, always start with the palest colour first, then work on top with the darker colour. Small touches, such as adding a spot of colour to cheeks on faces, will make your finished result even more impressive.
If you’re colouring using crayons, gently heat up your paper before you start. The warmth will melt the wax of the crayon slightly, and help create a more vivid colour.
Use gel pens to add fine details, accents and metallic accents on top of your coloured images.
To add a touch of glitter to your coloured image, use glitter pens for ease and accuracy.
