Tipsy Tuesday-Sassy Style

Hello everyone, it's time for another Tipsy Tuesday from Maria.  This time you will be getting some fabulous tips on coloring jeans and red hair!  I so need this one-hehe. 
Here is a colouing tutorial using Skater Chic, using Copics and a Prisma pencil

Put down a layer of B93, dont worry about even coverage- its not needed on denim.
Put a layer of B95 around the edges

Blend the two where they meet using the B93

Roughly go over middle of denims using colourless blender (0) to bleach out some colour.

Draw around the edges with a dark blue Prisma pencil ( I used Indigo)

Using a paper stump and Sansador/gamsol drag some of the colour into the image, blending gently for an authentic Denim look.

For red hair, cover with a layer of R59

Using light 'flick' strokes, add E47 from hair tips inwards and from roots outwards.

For a deeper red look, repeat previous step using E49.

Hope this is helpful!
