Markers are one of my favorite mediums to work with. Over the years, with the help of sales and coupons, I have collected quite a few. I wanted to compare the look of the water based markers I have. I used this fabulous image from RubberNecker I just got this week. I dig the expression on the ladies' faces and the detail of the image.
- Ran anti-static bag over watercolor paper. Stamped image on paper, sprinkled with detail embossing powder and heat set. The embossed edges acts as a damn to keep the color inside an area.
- Colored the image by adding small dabs, or lines, of color with the markers and then spreading the color with a waterbrush. I worked with one color at a time.
- Cut the images out. I used a craft knife to get really close in areas too tight for the scissors.
- Keep a paper towel close. If you put too much color down or spread it to any area you don't want it in, dab the area with the clean dry paper towel. If it's not coming up, add a little clear water. You have to do this right away before it drys.
- If you want the color very light, color the marker on a piece of plastic and pick up color with your waterbrush. You can also use a wet paintbrush.
