Copic Classes @ Eclectica with Sally Lynn MacDonald

Coming Saturday, March 6th, Sally Lynn MacDonald!

Copic Markers – What? How? & WOW!

10:00am – Noon $40

What is so special about Copic markers? These markers go way beyond coloring stamped images to multi-surface applications on cardstock, transparencies, fabric and more surfaces than you can imagine. Learn about the different styles of markers, and how the markers work, without the revealing brushstrokes so often associated with marker coloring. Unlock the secrets to choosing from the incredible 334 colors for blending and shading. Hands-on practice using four blending
techniques that build upon each other and culminate with a three page handout that is yours to keep for reference and practice. An airbrushing demonstration will also be included as time allows. Class taught by Sally Lynn MacDonald, Certification Trainer and Design Team member for Copic Marker / Imagination International.

What to bring: All Materials Supplied By Instructor. A writing instrument for note-taking is suggested.
