  "Oak & Olive" , an introduction to color kissing on limited marker palettes. |

November Lesson: color kissing

We all want a gigantic marker collection but even if you do win the lottery, it takes some time to gather a complete Copic collection.

What do you do when you don't own the markers you need?

Learn Amy's Color Kissing technique and then take it to new extremes by tinting your Copic Markers with colored pencil. This image was colored with green and brown markers and it's anything but boring!

Look in the recent posts for one called "Olive & Oak Livestream Here". It contains a viewing box directly at Patreon plus a link to watch via YouTube. Choose whichever viewer you prefer. The live-chat discussion board is only active with the YouTube viewer.

I recommend watching the livestream first rather than trying to color along with the live version because you can't pause the live version. Sit back and enjoy the broadcast first. Color later.

Printing Instructions:

Stamp not included in the class pack below. Must be purchased from here using the 20% discount code: VANILLAOLIVE20

  • Stamp should be sized to measure 5.5" from stems to the tip of the last olive leaf (I print two per page).
  • Instructions for opening and sizing your stamp are listed below.
  • I print at about 30-40% gray so that the stamp lines disappear as I color. That percentage varies by printer, so test on recycled paper first!
  • I am using X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. I highly recommend this paper! Blending and smoothing is soooooo much easier on cardstock that has been formulated for markers.

All printables open in a new window tab. If you have a blocker set, this may hamper your ability to open these printables.

Class Materials:

Note: Patreon fee does not include Power Poppy digital stamp. Olive & Oak can purchased directly from here. Use the code "VANILLAOLIVE20" at checkout to receive 20% off the purchase price.
