It’s time for another Create in Color with Sandy feature — who is excited? The technique she is sharing today is bound to inspire countless variations…how about a bubbling pot for our famous chef, or a spooky smoking cauldron crafted from scratch for a sweet witch? We’re confident you all will come up with some incredible twists, and we can’t wait to see them!

Hello MFT coloristas! It’s Sandy Allnock, I’m back again, and thought I’d let you know that you make my beaker bubble, did you know that? I love it that I’m not alone in LOVING to color!

The chemists in the release this month got me SO excited…bubbling beakers are a lot of fun, and pretty easy too!

Start by making life easy on yourself: wipe off the area of the stamp where the steamy cloud will appear before stamping…you can see what I mean in the video!

I’ve added a layer of difficulty to mine (consider me a Copic gymnast going for bonus points??) by coloring different ethnicities…darker colors definitely offer bigger challenges. Go big or go home, right?

And while I’m using silly Olympic references — how about competing for the gold medal in Using Too Many Copic Colors?

The steamy little poofs of smoke look great with little bubbles added on top with a white gel pen…so. much. fun.

    Oh Sandy this is fantastic. Colouring is awesome, great effects. My latest qualifications are in forensic science & I do think that at times we might have actually looked like that in the labs hehehe. Love this set, couldn’t wait to buy it when it released.
