Translucent & Sheer coloring: Learn the Glazing technique for Copics + Colored Pencil

Do you color transparent objects with a blue Copic Marker?

Last month, we looked at transparent glass and the failures of the blue marker method.

The blue marker method was likely born out of coloring frustration. Because really, what color is clear?

The blue marker technique seems to have caught on like wildfire; you see it everywhere! And I'm not surprised. Look, we've all been there. The stamp or coloring book image has a transparent object in it and we don't want to leave large areas completely uncolored... so what marker or colored pencil should we use?

Coloring Glass is a challenge

I'm not going to lie. Glass is something you work at but never master.

I know there are a lot of internet coloring tutorials for how to color glass, they almost always use a few BG Copics and you spend most of the time tracing the outline of the bottle, jar, or drinking glass.

Does that really look real to you?

Join us for art based coloring lessons on how to look at glass through an artist's eye- clues to look for, materials to use, and when + how to highlight. This class is the first step to really coloring glass rather than outlining it!
