Tutorial on colouring the face with Copic markers

Hi all Whimsy fans, it's Annika here!

I finally managed to put together a video tutorial and as colouring face was one of popular requests I started there. I am still learning and struggling with video editing so be merciful.

I am using Kenny K rubber stamp Kitty Katastrophe from Whimsy Stamps  and marker blending paper from Make It Crafty.

1) I am NO expert. Don't even have Copic certification and can't get certified here in Ireland either, as far as I know.
2) I do have strong accent and poor-ish English. Brace yourselves.
3) I'm a waffler. 'Nuf said.

First video requires following markers:
E13/11/01/00/000/0000 (the last one is optional)

You can watch it on Youtube HERE - the quality options are better there.

The second video is a very short one on colouring eyes and lips. It was originally part of the first one and butchered in editing to ultra short. It's thus fairly useless but I just didn't have time to re-edit. :( I'll plan things better next time (well, I hope to).

You will need B02/05 and R12/14/39

You can watch it on Youtube HERE - the quality options are better there.

Thanks for dropping by!!


  1. Annika these were great, now I just need more colors... LOL Thanks for enabling me.

  2. Nicely done! My 11 yr old artist & I both enjoyed this tutorial. Thanks for sharing your coloring techniques with us. And, no need to feel your English is poor either!
