This little ink squirt was created using my Copic Various refills and my Pébéo Paint Markers. I haven’t taken time to play lately because I have been working a lot on the Copic Boot Camp event, planning and prepping, but today I decided to play.
How This Was Created:
I thought I would try my hand at using Various Ink and 91% alcohol on glossy paper. The extra fun part is you have no idea how it is going to turn out.
After dropping a couple drops of the alcohol onto the paper I dropped Various Refill BV23 in the center of it. I used my heat gun to move the ink around to assist it in the drying process. If I wanted the ink to move a bit further before drying, I used my air compressor air instead. I also used BV29 for the last layers.
Once I was done repeating the process over and over until I was happy with it I decided to bring the design to life. In my mind I saw a squid or jellyfish so that is what I decided to create.
The Pébéo Paint Markers are perfect for this. I have found that the 0.7mm is a great size for fine lines and dots. First I used the Pébéo Paint Precious Marker to add some fine sparkle to the outer edges. This line comes in beautiful metallic as well as beautiful shimmer. Using a water brush to lightly blend it, leaves a transparent shimmer. All that was left was drawing and shading in the separation between tentacles, this was done with the White 0.07mm Pébéo Paint Marker.
I think the hardest part of the whole thing was determining when to stop! I guess I will need to make another one.
