Hello, coloring friends! I'm Sandy Allnock...here with a quick little tip to help with your Copic coloring that you just might not have thought about before.
I'm often surprised when I say something in a video that appears, to me, to be...well, a no-brainer. That's likely a symptom of being an obsessive colorist - I assume it's a little tip others of course know, but that's not always the case! This might be one of those - and it's using colored pencils along with your Copic markers.
Check out my video coloring these sweet kitties from Elizabeth Craft Designs...watch it below or HERE on YouTube!

Pencils can really help out with coloring! You can:
- fix blending
- add texture
- color teensy details that your marker nib just can't get into
- coat a Copic area to push the color to be more blue, more pink, etc.
I used the Spectrum Noir pencils with Copics for my card - I recently did a post about them HERE, comparing them to my beloved Prismacolor pencils, and testing out Gamsol vs Baby Oil for blending. If all you have are watercolor pencils, you can use those too -just no water, since you're not coloring on watercolor paper. ;)
