How to add detail to your Copic colourings

Hello there, it's Jane again,

So here is Wryn from Tiddly Inks enjoying a day at the beach.

Enhanced with coloured pencils

Sometimes when using Copics on small fiddly images you can't quite add the detail you would like to.  That is when additional coloured pencil enhancement can make all the difference!
I use Caran D'Ache Pablo's and Luminance pencils - and they are especially good for adding definition to hair.
Just remember to have a can of fixative to hand as the smooth cardstock usually used for Copic work is not overly suitable for pencils and it tends to rub off/smear if you don't seal your work.
(I use Winsor & Newton Professional Fixative)

Thanks for dropping by
