Crazy for Coloring!

Coloring.  Not just for kids anymore!  I just recently acquired a set of 48 Prismacolor markers.  These are very similar to Copic markers – they are alcohol based ink which allows for blending and non-streaking when filling in.

Thanks to the brilliant Darlene Devires and her tutorial post showing step-by-step instructions on how to color with copics markers (or Prismacolor in my case) I was able to color this Mouse stamp that I had got to make boyfriend a Valentine’s Day card with.

And here is my first colored image using alcohol markers:

Those penciled notes you see in the top left corner are my notes with each of the colors I used to create this image so I know for next time what the best colors are to use.

Yay!

  1. If you want a thumbs up for your investment in the markers, I had to buy them *cough* years ago as a required supply for college level design courses, and they still work today. I didn’t remember they were alcohol based, so thanks to your post, I am going to dig them out and use them! Great job on the mouse too!

    • Woo hoo! I was a bit wary of going outside the “crafty” box with the Prismacolors – excellent news that they last! Thanks for the thumbs up
      And mega bonus for you that you will have yours 😀
