Hi there, I'm back again - continuing my updating of the promarker tutorials.
This is the first of the hair colours and it's probably the one I use the most - brunette.
I have used Pillow Talk rubber stamp from Sugar Nellie, Memento ink in Tuxedo Black, Stampin' Up whisper white cardstock and the following promarkers: Black, Walnut, Cocoa, Cinnamon, Tan, Almond - although you can cut out some of those shades (e.g. you could cut out black and/or walnut for less depth)
In this first image I have coloured a little black (use very sparingly) where I imagine the very darkest areas of her hair would be e.g. at the roots and behind her head
Black isn't the easiest shade to blend, so I take a wee bit of time to colour over the black and outwards into the white area with Walnut - I've done this a few times to take away the harshness of the black but still leaving a nice depth of colour. I have then coloured some more areas of the hair where the light would NOT be hitting
The next shade down I have used is Cocoa and I have coloured over everything I have coloured so far and slightly further out into the uncoloured areas of her hair - by colouring over the darker shade you will blend the varying shades together and get rid of any hard lines
Repeat this technique with the next shade down, Cinnamon.
And again with Tan
Finally, I have used Almond to colour over the whole area of hair - this helps to blend all the shades together, ensuring a smooth finish.
I'll be back with more hair colours soon.
