Rocker Boys Skin Tut!

Good morning and a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all..Today I am sharing how I color my skin on KRAFT paper!! This tutorial is done with an Image from C.C DESIGNS and it is one of the ROCKER BOYS..I love these little dudes!! The pencils are Prisma colors and I blended with Gamsol which is also known as Odorless Mineral Spirit you can find it at local craft stores. If you have any question feel free to leave them in comment along with a way I can contact you and I will get back to ya!!

Prisma Pencils
Dark Brown
Burnt Ochre
Light Peach

this is also the order I apply them

Pic 1
Apply thin light layer of Dark Brown to Shadow areas.. Pressure light
Pic 2
Dark Brown is down now add Chocolate hitting edge of Dark Brown. Extend your shadow lines slightly
Pic 3
Burnt Ochre next picking up edge of Chocolate..
Pic 4
Taking Peach do the same as above hitting edge of Burnt Ochre keep pressure light
Pic 5
Light Peach now so all colors have been applied
Pic 6
All colors are applied now blend out with Gamsol and paper stump..this will make it look very light now to much pressure when blending out as this removes color. If you want it dark repeat all steps mentioned above..

thanks for stopping by and I hope this helps you out!! Have fun and remember to always practice!! If you mess up it is only paper!! HUGS

Tutorial Tuesday!!

Distress Inks Used
Body – Antique Linen, Fossilized Amber, Wild Honey, Aged Mahogany
Beck – Carved Pumpkin, Rusty Hinge
Gizzard – Fire Brick Red, Aged Mahogany
Legs – Black Soot

Apply a thine line of Antique Linen along outer edge of Turkey. (head, body, and wing and tail just the one side)
Rinse Brush and blend out toward center of Turkey.  Let dry.  If you want you can repeat these two steps if you want it darker. I only did it once

 Using Fossilized Amber apply thin   line along the same side you did the Antique Linen on.
Rinse brush and blend out toward the center again. You can rinse brush again if the color is staying too strong.
If you look at pic below I also did around the beak.  Make sure to do the tail as well.
This is what it should loo like all blended out so far.

Wild Honey will be now applied the same way as above.  Let DryThis is what it looks like with the Wild Honey blended out! 

  Aged Mahogany is now applied. Once again, a VERY thin line to deepen the shading around CHEEKS, TAIL FEATHERS. Rinse brush blend out you may need to rinse brush twice.
Aged Mahogany applied to all of the areas and blended out

Carved Pumpkin is next up.  Apply thin line on the Beck look at photo. Rinse brush out and blend out to center of beck.

 Rusty Hinge is now applied the same as above and blended out the same way.  

 Gizzard time using FIRE BRICK RED apply thin line as per picture.  Rinse brush and blend out!

Almost done apply thin line of AGED MAHOGANY to outer edge of GIZZARD rinse brush out and blend out. Now the Final step is to fill in legs. Legs not done here but this is what you finished Turkey should look like with black legs.
