Hello! Kerri, here and I wanted to share with you how I usually color faces with my Copic markers:)
These are the colors I almost always use. E11, E00, E0000, and R20. I am using the adorable Ellie Loves Lattes for my demo today.
I know that many teach to start with the lighter color first, but I always start with the darkest first. I outline the hairline and the sides of the face with E11.
Next I add some blush to the cheeks with R20.
I blend those together with E00, making sure to leave a space for my lightest color around the nose and mouth.
I finish blending with E0000.
Sometimes I go back and add a little shading around the hairline with my E11 once again.
The finished product! I used the YNS Fishtail/Banner Dies for my sentiment and the dp is Pebbles Seen and Noted.
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial! Thank you so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
