It is time for the Technique Blog hop and our technique this month is == alcohol markers. If you have come from Judy Faye's blog you are well on your way to seeing all the beautiful artwork.
Coloring with the new Close To My Heart alcohol markers is similar to other brands. Each color in our palette has two pens the base color and a shade, either lighter or darker. In the new 2013 Sprng/Summer Idea Book, you will see next to the item number a circle. If the circle is light, the coordinating marker will be a lighter shade and if it is dark, the coordinating marker is darker. This makes the ability to do shading easy peasy as you have the light and dark colors together. Each marker set is $5.95.
The markers have a paint brush end and a point end. While there is a point end, they do not outline sharp, it is not a fine tip and the ink will spread. I like to use the paint brush tip for painting, remember to use the edge of the brush and not the tip, so as not to splay your bristles. The point end is great for deep shading.
These markers are meant for coloring.
