Emma's waving again, in her bathing suit this time! I've printed her out on PTI kraft and boy does it make those colored pencils pop. I use a combination of Prismacolor Premier and Koh-I-Nor pencils that I blend with a Prismacolor Colorless Art Marker. I think it is so much easier than using a stick and a solvent! The Prismacolor Marker works better than my first experiment, a Copic Colorless Blender. I think it's because the Prismacolor marker has a fine end with a stiff nib and the Copic has that wiggly brush tip.

I've been thinking about getting a few Copics for fleshtones (Cuppy Cake is such an enabler), and I will probably be getting the original Copics because they come with a nib similar to the Prismacolor's nib (and they are refillable, which the Prismacolor is not).

I used basicGrey Marrakech patterned paper here, in fact, I was inspired to purchase (hypnotized into buying) Marrakech because of Lesa Rapp's samples with the original Beachies. I love the colors and the vibe of these papers!

Love this!!!!! If you haven't, check out Flourishes...they just started selling the original Copics (or maybe the sketches) in color groupings of 3,4,or 5 markers. They have two flesh tone groupings you can buy....
