The Copic Coloring Guide is a new book by Colleen Schaan and Marianne Walker. It's the perfect resource for beginner and intermediate coloring artists alike. The book contains information about the different styles of Copic markers, explains the coloring/numbering system, details how to pick good blending groups, teaches a number of blending techniques through illustrated tutorials, and demystifies the colorless blender marker. And that's just in the first 18 pages! The book also contains over 40 beautiful coloring card projects separated into beginner, intermediate, and advanced skill level. Each card project includes step-by-step coloring AND assembly instructions, along with supply lists and manufacturer information to make recreating the projects simple and easy.
This is a card of mine that appears in the Copic Coloring Guide. On it I used a Lockhart Stamp Company image, Peonies, combined with some October Afternoon Thrift Shop papers. I used two Spellbinders die templates as well, Petite Scalloped Circles Small and Standard Circles Small. Stepped-out directions and all supplies are in the Copic Coloring Guide.
The book is published by Annie's Attic, a division of DRG, also the publishers of the popular CardMaker magazine. Click HERE for more information or to purchase the book (also available in PDF electronic download).
