European Copic Colouring Programme Class 4

Well, it's official, I have finished all four of the European Copic Colouring Programme classes today, with Class 4. Yay! Massively proud of myself :)



Today's class was adding onto what I learnt in Copic 3, folds, and ended with some no line colouring, something I really shy away from, as I struggle so much with light and shade. The folds section really went into more detail with the shading and I think I may be starting to understand.... note the maybe! I shall need to practice a lot more to really test it out.




I also did the colouring on Kraft class in the afternoon which I loved and will definitely try some more. I think the Kraft is pretty forgiving and you get a really subtle look with fewer markers.



As usual Faye was an amazing teacher - and even didn't give me too much of telling off for chatting a bit too much.... it's so nice seeing crafty friends, I can't help it!

Thanks to everyone who bought some of my bags, so that I could invest in more stamping supplies - thank goodness for the pop up shop, eh?

I will be back at more classes in September. They always give me a boost when I've been struggling to colour! If you fancy having a go at any of Faye's classes, all the details are on her website Stampin' Fluff N Stuff.

Yay! Congratulations! I get the impression that the class was both useful and fun! I have recently subscribed to Alyce's colouring classes at Kit and Clowder. I decided to start with the monthly pencils classes, but still haven't started to actually colour. I'm hoping to start with this month's lessen. Wish me luck...

Yay Ruth your colouring is fab and I'm so happy for you. I'm really considering getting copics as I do miss colouring with markers x

Well done you! And I want to see that I have seen great leaps forward in your colouring Ruth, and your confidence, which is so much a part of it. Agree Faye's classes are awesome, she is a great teacher. I shy away from no-line colouring too, so hope to make it to level four so I can become more confident with that. Also really don't often use markers on kraft, but I agree the effect is beautiful. Keep practicing - that's what I always tell myself but of course, don't do enough of. Lisa x
