Welcome to another tutorial here on the CopicOz Blog! Today we are looking at the Feathering technique, what it is, why you would want to use it and how to do it!! Some say this is the trickiest technique that you can do with Copics, but personally this is one of my favourites!
The reason that you would use this technique is if you want to have two colours from different colour families that have to merge into each other. Imagine the colours of an iris or a pansy - blending the colours from a deep purple into a bright yellow! This effect is also wonderful for getting the variegating look for fairy wings or dresses. Trying to do this with the blending on paper technique would result in a bit of a mess. You don't have to only use this technique with different colour families, you can also use it for example to have a deep green blend into a light green for the same wonderful effect!!
