Pastel Copic Coloring with Kelly Latevola

Hello Crafters! 

It's Kelly here and I'm back with another Copic coloring tutorial for you guys!


You all know I love my Copic markers and I've been using them for a long time. However, there's still plenty of things for me to learn and pastel coloring is one I struggled with for a long time. 


Often times in summer and spring I would like to color things a little lighter but they always felt flat to me. I missed my dimension! I have found the trick to it is to add the dark colors. 

Sounds pretty common sense right?
Well it is, except I was very heavy handed with my coloring. The trick my friend is to add the tiniest little bit of the darker color. It won't overwhelm your image and the dark makes those light colors POP. 

Check out the video below to see what I mean! 


Did you see how flat they look before adding the hint of dark?
It makes all the difference! 
Give it a try :) 


Thank you guys so much for stopping by! 
I appreciate you joining me :)
