Colouring Metal is best achieved with the Cool Grey range of Copics because although they are grey, they also have a blue base giving it a cool, metallic feel. To give the feeling of a rounded bucket, decide where your light source is and give your bucket a highlight (or two!) and shadowed sides.
Begin by laying down a base of C1.....
Flick in some C3 from each side, leaving a highlight area in the middle.
Flick in some C5, but not as far as the C3.
Blend with the next lightest colour, leaving the middle untouched. To really deepen the shadows, add some C7 to the edges.
Continue to blend colours and darken edges with the above colours until you are happy with the finished look!
Finish colouring your image and make your card!!
Hope you've enjoyed today's tutorial and happy colouring!!
