Spectrum Noir Colouring blends

I have been asked on a few occasions about the blends I use for my colouring. Most of the tutorials that are out there focus on Copics so learning to use Spectrum Noir markers has been a real journey of trial and error. 

I have therefore put together a few videos of my colouring and blends.

Under each link are the colours I have used so do not feel that you need to watch the whole video as the colours are there for you to trial and experiment with.

Above all else remember there is no right or wrong and just have fun!!!

  2. Thank you for your tutorial, very helpful

  3. These are fab Claire!
    I was in the middle of collecting Spectrum Noir markers when they suddenly changed the sets! Grrrr! Absolutely love these markers though and chose them because they were affordable AND refillable. I have found a chart to be invaluable when using the pens.
