My New Secret Coloring Weapon!

– Posted in: Coloring Tutorials Markers Reviews

I’ve been hinting at it for a couple of weeks now and the time has finally come for me to reveal to you my new secret coloring weapon! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have been using this coloring technique for a month or so and don’t think I can ever go back to just plain ol’ coloring! The colors I’m getting are so much more vibrant and dynamic. I think you’ll love it and want to use it yourself from now onโ€“especially when coloring with colored pencils and gel pens.

Enter Giveaway!

Congratulations Linda Kennedy! You won the lovely little set of Sharpie Highlighters.

    LOL, I’ve been doing this for years! Highlighters always had prettier colors so I mixed them with all my coloring.

  • crafty.grandma. August 17, 2016, 3:56 pm

    OMG! I love hi-lighters just last week I accidently picked up one and started to color with them not realizing it was a hi-lighter! Then I took the same color Prisma and colored it and gel like you did!!! I think you are rubbing off on me!! As for putting the markers end to end – I was working at a local tv station and the electricians thought it was a great idea to use them as a saber (it was during the Star War years!) and we nearly all got into trouble when the big boss walked in!! LOL!! very professional!! LOL!! thanks for reminding me of that!
