Class: Textures and Patterns with Copic Markers w/ Cheryl Valadez

Join me Saturday afternoon and I'll show you a few quick and easy techniques for adding texture and pattern to your Copic colored images.  We'll be adding a few more sheets to our Copic Reference Book, focusing on the versatility of 2 strokes...dots and wisps.  We'll also play with our colorless blender.  Between these 3 techniques you'll see a number of ways to create fur, grass, denim, bricks, etc.  Super fun and super easy, plus you'll be able to add dimension and detail to your future Copic coloring projects.  Copics are an investment, but the return is priceless when you learn to use them to their fullest potential.
