Colouring Hair with Texture

Hi Everyone,

As you know I love colouring cute little people, and I often get asked how I go about colouring hair.

So, I have put together this tutorial with a video! ( My first video - EVER!!!!) for you to hopefully enjoy and learn from!

As Copic addicts, when we first learn to colour we often use the Basic Blending rules that we know to colour hair. That is, colour in circles and aim for a 'seamless blend'. The outcome often looks like this ...

As you can see the hair is very smooth, but also very bland!!!

If you colour a little differently, you can add some texture and 'streak-i-ness' to make the hair look much more the image below!

Here is a closer look at the difference between the two colouring styles:

So, without further adieu, here is my video tutorial on how to Colour Hair with Texture!
(pssst let me know what you think!)

Happy Colouring...Mandi-Lee
