A little while there was a conversation on Facebook about the correct colours for Forever Friends Bears. As you will know i am more of a Promarker user than Copics, although i do use them occasionally. So i decided to share how i do my Forever Friend Bears with Promarkers.
THIS IS A PICTURE HEAVY POST, SO YOU MAY WANT TO GRAB A CUP OF TEA!!
The colours i have used are:
Cool Grey 1, 2 and 3
I used Rymans 200gsm Bright White Coated Card
The stamp is from the Forever Friends New Arrivals Set
PLEASE NOTE: I am not trained in anyway and am completely self taught. I have followed numerous tutorials myself and just thought i would share how i do things.
So lets get started
Using Oatmeal go around the edge of the head
Now go over the Oatmeal with Vanilla, dragging the Oatmeal out
Go around the edge again with Oatmeal
Over again vanilla dragging it out more
Now add in Ivory. You need to do this TWICE. I used the chisel end for quickness
Now do the arms using the same process as the head
Now the tummy and Feet
Now the pads and ears. Using Coral go around the edge as shown
Then Sunkissed pink over the top of the Coral
Now with Pale Pink, go over the whole lot.
I wanted a pinker effect so i went over it again with Sunkissed Pink
Still not what i wanted so i went round the edge with Cocktail pink and coloured the whole thing with Blossom
Now for the bunny, I did this grey this time but i would probably do it pink, lemon or blue depending on the recipient of the card.
Using Cool Grey 3 (above) go around the edge the go over it dragging it out slightly with Cool Grey 2
Go over it all with Cool Grey 1
Then repeat the process leaving Cool Grey 2 out.
Then blend in with Pale Pink
And here is the finished bear the morning after, when it is completely dry. If you feel it hasn't blended enough go over the whole bear with Ivory.
I hope this has been useful for you. If there is something in particular you would like to see coloured please leave a comment and i will do my best to help!
Thank you for looking x
