  Vanilla Livestream lessons for Copic colorers. Pink Copic Blending Trios fail at realism. Why shading with red or hot pink markers disappoints you every time. |

february Lesson: Color sculpting pink objects

Color sculpting is the artist's term for creating the illusion of a three dimensional object using color. Copic colorers mistakenly call this "shading" and they shade by grabbing a marker that's 2-3 numbers higher than their main marker color.

But "shading" is a primitive technique and the method doesn't work well when the object is pink or light red. Copic only offers red markers to shade these areas but look at any pink object in real life, they're NEVER red in the shaded areas!

Join Amy for an exploration of sculpting light red and pink objects with realism and NO RED MARKERS!

On the day of the broadcast, about 5 minutes before broadcast time, go to and log in to your account.

Look in the recent posts for one called "Rose' All Day Livestream Here". It contains a link to watch via a new window at Crowdcast. The live-chat discussion board is only active during the original broadcast and it may not be available on mobile or tablet formats.

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.

To view the recording:

On the left sidebar you will see "Featured Tags". Click "Livestream" to pull up previously recorded sessions. Use the instructions above.

Watch at your convenience, as many times as you'd like.

Remember that if the discussion board appears, no one is live on the board to talk with you and Amy does not receive any message notifications. Want to comment or ask a question? Start a post on the Patreon discussion board.


Rose' All Day Printing Instructions:

Stamp not included in the class pack below. Must be purchased from using the 20% discount listed above.

  • Stamp should be sized so that the pencil element inside the bouquet measures at least 5" from end to end. Size matters for this stamp and if you print it too small, some areas will be difficult to color with even the tip of your Copic nibs.
  • Instructions for opening and sizing your stamp are listed below.
  • I print at about 30% gray so that the stamp lines disappear as I color. That percentage varies by printer, so test on scrap paper first!
  • This project should be printed onto X-Press It Blending Card. Substitute other brands at your own risk.

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. Rose' All Day can purchased directly from here. Use the code "VANILLA20ALLDAY" at checkout to receive 20% off the purchase price.

Rose' All Day will be colored on X-Press It Blending Card*
