I remember when I first started using alcohol markers. Skin tones was my worst nightmare. After taking 3 classes on how to color skin tones, I vowed to never color people again.
So when Stampin’ Up came out with Stampin’ Blends, I just laughed.
No way am I doing skin tones. But you know me, I had to test the water and try the Ivory and Bronze Stampin’ Blends.
After trying them it was a ‘shut the front door, sorta moment.’ I could not believe how easy it was to make skin look so real.
Are you wondering why I have started with skin tones colored on acetate? Because I want to show you that you can
use your alcohol markers on other textures than paper. Here are a few:
These skin tones are an adult and child. Now look at your hands then look at
a child’s hands. There skin is pinker, smoother and softer. While the adult will
have a warmer tone, with imperfection, and rougher looking. Now look closer
at the card to the right.
