Advanced Feather Blending for Drawers

By: Copic Markers

So you've mastered the basic art of blending- now what? Try your hand at Advanced Feather Blending for Drawers from Copic Markers, of course! Maker coloring techniques can really add to your craft designs and create depth. Make your designs pop with help from this tutorial.

  1. Start by coloring the mountains with B41, stroking from the top of each peak, down to the base, flowing in the direction of the mountain. Lift up at the end of each stroke so that less ink is at the base and more is at the peak. At the closest peak, apply lots of light layers in slightly criss-crossing strokes for a proper feather, being consistent with the base looking feathered, and the top of the peak looking dark.

  2. Feather with W3 from the bottom with exactly the same technique, this time making the base dark and the feathering going back up into the mountain. Add lots of very light layers to achieve a proper blend.

  3. On the closest peak you can see the colors blending more and more, as the streaks disappear. Sometimes, adding the original color again after blending, smooths out the streaks.

  4. After feathering the blue and gray, add a faint layer of BV31 to achieve the effect you would like. You can see from these mountains that the more you layer the pale purple over the whole area, the more it shows through. The third mountain is colored as if it is in front, but it looks like it has more shadow than the others, so it could have been colored as if it were in back simply by adding more BV31. The purple is strongest in the middle because there is the least amount of dye on that spot on the page. This gives the purple a place to fill in.
  5. To make the texture at the base of the mountains, dampen a rag with colorless blender, and blot the browns and grays on the mountain. It adds a hint of texture on the front of the rocks.
