STAMPING AND COLORING WITH COPIC MARKERS ON FABRIC
Hi there, it's Tracey here with your tutorial for this week. Today I will step you through how to stamp and colour a La-La Land image onto a cute little baby onesie. fabric acts very differently to card stock when using copic markers. Hopefully you will pick up some handy tricks and tips below.
Gather your supplies.
* Baby onesie. A fine, even weave of fabric is ideal.
* Ink. Memento or versafabric.
* Scrap cardstock. Use this to insert into garment to soak up excess ink whilst colouring.
* Copic markers. Colors appear darker on fabric than on card stock, so choose lighter colours than desired.
Stamp selected image onto fabric using Memento ink. Heat set with heat gun or iron to endure that it will not wash out when laundered.
Color image using copic markers. Markers tend to bleed a lot on fabric, so it is important to dab the marker lightly onto the centre of the area to be coloured, keeping well away from the stamped lines.
Use a very light hand and wait in between applications for the colour to spread to avoid bleeding. I have started with the mid tone yellow.
Carefully add the darkest yellow tone, but do not colour right up to the edges. It will spread.
Add the lightest tone to finish off. You can see that this last step has blended the yellows together a little.
Do not use colourless blender on fabric. It tends to pool and suck colour into the pool.
Finish off colouring, being sure to add very small amounts of colour at a time, and waiting for each colour to spread before adding more.
I added some dirt to ground the images, using different coloured dots.
Before use, iron garment to set the copic colours. I would recommend a gentle cold machine or hand wash in mild detergent.
Last but not least, my gorgeous little model Jordy, who just loves his new tractor onesie.
