I need to say that I learned a lot about coloring and blending colors from all these blogs you sent me. One of the best things I learned was to put a lot of ink down and to blend the colors with the lightest of the two colors. What I mean is, if you are blending yellow and orange together and want and smooth blend of colors between the two, you need to use the yellow and color in small circles on the border of the two colors until it looks the way you want it. You can see I did that on the submarines in the first picture.
What I don't like is that the color bled outside the lines of of the images. I'm not sure if that is because I saturated the paper so much or that the paper is just not right for the markers. I read in many of the blogs that oftentimes the artists use Bristol paper for their coloring. I will try that and get back to you in Part 2. What I do like now about using my Prisma markers is how they blend now. I'm getting used to it. I'm equating this experience to my first experience with my Prisma pencils. When I first started coloring with them, I was frustrated because they didn't blend well, but the more I used them, the better I liked them. Now I can't live without them. I'm hoping for the same satisfaction with the markers, but it will take time.
Ok, so on to the winner of my pencil art on the "Happy Summer" July 17 post. I used the random number generator and it chose JAN! This is THE BLOG that Jan sent me to. Thanks, Jan! I'll be contacting you over on the Stamp Shack.
Thank you to everyone who reads my blog. I really appreciate you stopping by.
