Good afternoon to you all in the land of blog
Today I ran another great class at Grimsby Crafts for our copic addicts.
We had a lovely relaxed class and two wonderful fans as the weather here today has been hot hot hot!!!!!! So hot that almost all of us were heading off for a BBQ.
In today's class I taught facial blending, tip to tip blending, different types of copics, refilling copics and replacing copic nibs
This is the Triple Easel Card that we made
The clear polymer images available at Grimsby Crafts are Secret Crafter Manga Images - the beauty of these is that the face is rather large and allows the extra room to create the facial features using the copics. These can also be purchased in digital format by clicking on the Secret Crafter shop logo in my side bar. The papers are also available in the shop, the pearls are but have been coloured with the copics.
Here is a close up of each image
Colours used were
G99, G94, G82 (greens) Little boy
