GIVEAWAY - Copics Coloring class from Annie's


Hi Everyone!

Today I’m reviewing a video on coloring people with alchohol ink markers from Annie’s that I really enjoyed and learnt a lot from. In this video, which is almost 3 hours long, super talented and certified coloring artist  (and the newest member of the Copics design team) Jennifer Dove  shares lots of tips and tricks for coloring with perfect blending, everything from great skin tones, lips and eyes to different kinds of hair. She also has great info on how to create your own facial features if they are “missing” in the image and the part that I found most helpful was the one on coloring clothes with different kinds of texture and dimension.

Jennifer speaks slowly and very clearly so it is super easy, even for me as a non-native speaker of English to follow along.  It even has subtitles if you should need that. What she does more is that repeats everything she does twice which not only gives you extra time for your own coloring, but also means you don’t have to go through the trouble of pausing or rewinding a lot which I found great.

Even if this is the sequel to her first video; Coloring with copics, beginners guide, I think that this is a great video for beginners too – especially if you color a lot of people images. I say that because I wish I’d watched this video before I started collecting markers. She shares great tips on which colors work well for different things like skin tones, hair, eyes and even the best ones to use for denim etc. and it would have been both easier and cheaper to have had that knowledge from the start.

What is so great about this product too is that you will get lots of printable material to use for your own practice and for your own reference for later. There are both worksheets but also five great images to color for real projects like cards or albums.


All Annie’s videos are downloadable which means you can get them exactly when you want to, but I got this video on DVD and watched it on our TV set which meant I could sit at our dinner table with plenty of room for all my supplies – and in the end – room for Ted (my 6-year-old son)  and his coloring book, pens and markers too.

If you haven’t discovered their huge selection on crafting videos yet, be sure to go here – so many new and fun crafting techniques to learn. Everything from paper crafting to crocheting and knitting.


I learnt a lot of new tricks from watching  Coloring Fun With Alchohol Ink Markers: People  and would love if Jennifer was to make another one soon. In the meantime I have one copy of this awesome class to give away to someone who would love to improve their coloring skills – thank You so much Annie’s.
Want to win your own copy of this class/video?
Just make a comment below and if you want an extra chance in the drawing you can share about this on your blog or on facebook and then come back here and add another comment saying you have!

I will draw the winner on the 9th of April.


Have a great day, hugs, Karin
