Coloring Faces with Copics

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!
