Colouring wavy hair tutorial

Hi all!  I'm here today with a quick tute on colouring wavy hair with Copic Markers using MilkCoffee Stamps  Lisbeth Walks In The Rain.

So, first I select my colours - here I am using E31, E33, E35 and E37.  First, using my lightest, E31, I cover the whole hair...



I then take the next darkest E33 and  colour where the darker parts of the waves in her hair will be...

I then use the next darkest E35 to colour the darkest part of the hair waves...

I go back and use my lightest colour E31 to blend the colours together...

Now I want to create even more depth.  I take my darkest colour E37 and put in the very darkest areas in her hair...

And finally using light strokes I lightly blend the darkest areas where I have used E37 with E35 into the E35 areas and E33 where I have used E35 into the E33 areas (if that makes sense!!).   Et voila, the finished hair...

Hope that was useful!  Leave any questions you have in the comments and I'll get back to you!

  10. How-to's always much appreciated! It looks like the key is to have a series of shades (of markers) in the same colour-family, no? Thanks for the link to the Cuddly Buddlies. They are getting back to me re: international shipping costs.
