How Sandy Colors Magnolia Rubber Stamps' Tilda Faces with Copic Markers

Thanks to our friend Sandy H, here is a great lil' tutorial for you!

My Photo

I have been asked by many of my followers how I color my Tilda faces with Copic markers. So I thought I would share with you the steps I take to do this. After each step I have listed the colors I used to do that samples hair. For faces, I use E000, E00, E02 and R20.

Step 1: Quickly color entire face with E00
Hair - E02, E99

Step 2: Add E02 to the edges and cheeks for shading
Hair - YR12, YR18

Step 3: Blend with E00 ONLY in the E02 area
Hair - E11, E17

Step 4: Color with e000 across the entire face
Hair - YR21, YR24

Step 5: Add R20 to the cheeks
Hair - E33, E37

Step 6: Blend the cheek color with E000
Hair - E21, E25

And don't forget to add the white dot for a cheek accent. I forgot in my sample. There are lots of ways to color Tilda, this is just what works for me. I hope you find it useful. You can click on the Magnolia label at the bottom of this post, and it will bring up all the cards I have done with Tilda. Have fun coloring with your Copics.
