Copic Hair and Skin Colour Wheel


 Today I want to show you a colour wheel with a difference.  

This is a Copic Hair and Skin Colour Wheel.

I have created this colour wheel and printed it onto X-Press It Blending Card


Then I coloured half of the wheel in skin colour combinations that I like, and the other half in hair colour combinations.


Next, using a piece of black cardstock, I create another wheel, only this time I cut out two corresponding windows.


Using a brad/split pin, I attach the black window wheel on top of the Copic coloured wheel. 
Make sure that the wheels can turn.


Now you can spin the wheel and find your favourite hair and skin colour combination.

I then coloured Marci using colour combinations from this wheel.


I apply some X-Press It Foam Tape and attach Marci to the center of the wheel.


By having two windows you can see how the hair and skin combination works together.

 This wheel holds either 6 hair and 6 skin combinations, alternatively you could use it just for 12 skin colour combinations, and create another wheel for your favourite hair colours.

I hope you've enjoyed this post.
Happy Creating ....
