Who’s ready to celebrate?
Join Amy for an amazing colored pencil challenge. That’s right, we’re ditching the markers and focusing on pencils this month!
Dark paper adds drama and intensity to coloring projects but if you’ve ever tried coloring on intense colored paper, you understand how dull and dingy the colors can look.
Amy shows you her techniques for keeping colors crisp and true. It’s about more than your technique, it’s also matching your supplies to the task.
This lesson works for black, navy blue, deep purple, pine green, chocolate brown, even some deep grays.
Not a fan of pencils? Give it a try! Improving your pencil technique will also help your Copic coloring. We use these mediums together because they’re so closely related!

Vanilla Livestream is perfect for:
Intermediate colorers who already have basic Copic blending skills
Intermediate colorers who are tired of "monkey see, monkey do" demonstrations
Experienced colorers looking to challenge their current skills
Shy artists who want more than craft-level classes based on trendy techniques
I recommend that if you're a beginner, start with Marker Painting Foundations to develop your basic marker technique BEFORE joining Vanilla Livestream classes. These are definitely intermediate level challenges!
