What do you get when you combine Copics, Prismacolors and white gel pens…

 I love my Copic markers, my Prismacolor pencils and my white gel pens.

And today, I dabbled with all three and came up with a brand new colouring technique–well, new to me. Here are my first two attempts–check them out and, if you like them, my simple instructions follow below the photos.

For example, let’s use the Black-eyed Susans in the  photo directly above.

To achieve this look, I began by laying down some very light yellow on the petals with my Copic marker.

Next, I used a deep yellow/orange to add some shading. I then blended them together with a yellow Prismacolor pencil. Prismacolors are very waxy, which creates a nice slippery surface, perfect for a little more blending with a yellow Copic.

To add, what I think is a cool touch, I used a white gel pen to create dimension and interest.

That’s pretty much it. You can have so much fun just playing with markers, pencils and gel pens. Give it a try!!
