Coloring Corner: Mermaid Stamp

Mermaid Stamp Coloring Project

by Sharon Jeffs

One of my favourite kinds of images to color with copic markers is mermaids because I can blend different color palettes together so well.  Today I am using the Mermaid from Frantic Stamper's own line of cling-mounted rubber stamps. For decorating my mermaids I used the following colors:

Skin tones —
  • E21 Baby Skin Pink
  • E00 Skin White
  • E000 Pale Fruit Pink
Lips —
  • RV13 Tender Pink
Eyes, Body, & Tail —
  • B05 Process Blue
  • B02 Robins Egg Blue
  • G07 Nile Green
  • G17 Forest Green
Hair —
  • E35 Chamois (I used this to color the whole hair area)
  • E18 Copper (I added slivers in different areas to create shadows)
  • 0 Colorless Blender (I used this to lighten random curls to add highlights)
One other thing that I did that is difficult to see, I sprayed the whole image with a light spray of a silver Glimmermist to add sparkle and I colored all the bubbles with clear Ice stickles.
