Tutorial: Coloring Curly hair with Copic Markers/ Fargelegg krøller med Copics

Hi friends, 
I am so happy to tell you I am now a part of the Copic Marker Europe DT! 

I made at ltutorial on how to color frizzy curly hair with Copic Markers. 
I love curly hair, but it can be hard sometimes. I'm sure there are lots of wonderful ways to do it, here's one of mine:) Hope it's useful!  

For norsk versjon se Copic Marker Norge's blogg HER.

I chose this beautiful image, Mothersday- daughter by Saturated Canary. I colored the skin first to make sure the chosen hair colors matched. 
Markers I will use for the hair is: E49-59-39-35-33

 Start with your darkest marker E49. Use the tip of your maker to make the curls. You can practice on a scrap piece of paper to get the movements right. Make very light swirls, barely touching the paper. I'm careful to follow the artists drawings when coloring, starting near her face and coloring towards the tip of the hair. On the right picture you can se the strokes I made.

 Next, repeat the movements using your second darkest marker E59. As you can see I leave some white space between the strokes, filling it marker by marker, so the strokes have to be very thin.
I repeat the swirling moments over her whole hair. 

 Then I go over again with E39. Filling the white spaces, but make sure you don't cover it all. 

Go over again using E35 and E33. Be sure to leave some white space

Finally I go over one last time with the darkest marker to make shadows under her cheeks to make the curls pop. Keep using the swirl movements.

Time to finish up the rest of the image and make a card.

Markers used: 
Skin: E 15- 21-53-50, R20, Eyes: B97-93-91
Daughers hair: E49-59-39-35-33
Mothers hair: 
Dress: B97-95-93-91
Mothers clothes: W7-3-1-00, V99-95-93-91
Flowers: G82-94, V99-95-91, V06, W7-3-01-00, Y38
Paper: B91-B60
I used Copic Opaque White to make the dots on her skirt. 

 Here' s the finished card. Papers by Maja Design, Spellbinder floral oval and swirl by Memorybox. Flowers are WOC. Sentiment by Norsk Stempelblad and postmark stamp is Kort og Godt.

Here's the inside of the card too.

Hope you like my tutorial.
Thanks for stopping by today!

I used two fabulous Saturated Canary images: Selfie and Saturday Coffee. I masked them together and made this crazy bunch of us sisters and two of her best friends. We had a fantastic day and evening together and we laughed so hard my stomach muscles are still hurting.
