Fuzzy Bunnies: Copic and Pencil Coloring with Sandy Allnock
When Sandy Allnock swings by the MFT blog, you know another month’s coloring is underway! And this month I have a coloring tool to share that you might not have thought about using with your Copic markers — a regular old pencil!
I’m using the bunnies this month…they’re such sweet little drawings and I played around with ways to make them look really, really fuzzy. You can use colored pencils, but, those are really soft. You don’t get tons of tiny hairs in the texture.
Then I saw my sketch box filled with pencils and I snagged an HB pencil. It’s similar to a No. 2 pencil, so you can try the same with a pencil in your pencil cup — just get it nice and sharp! Watch the video below to see how I did this.
To make the word “Bubble” look partially behind the bubbles, it was first stamped in the Cement Gray with black stamped just on the parts not in the middle. Afterward I was able to trace the letters that don’t have bubbles in front of them.
I created a little bit of a soft purple sky around the bubbles to make them appear whiter against the color, and then added Glossy Accents to finish them.
I hope you’ll get out some of your critter stamps and give them some fuzzy furry texture too. See you next month!
