WOYWW - Wednesday 93

Zoals jullie vorige week op mijn blog (WOYWW - deel 2 ) hebben kunnen zien was ik druk bezig met het schoonmaken van mijn knutselruimte. Gelukkig is alles klaar, hebben stempels, inkt, papier en alle andere spulletjes hun eigen plaats weer terug gekregen. Het lijkt alsof er een frisse wind door mijn kamer heeft gewaaid ... En  hopelijk ook door mijn hoofd om daar nieuwe ideeën achter te laten  J.

So, as I told you on my blog last week, I was cleaning up my craftroom. But now it’s completely finished and all my stamps, inks, papers and other stuff has their own (sometimes new) places. It feels that there is a new breeze blowing through my room and hopefully also through my mind (full with lots of new ideas) J.



Zoals je op mijn bureaublad deze woensdag ziet ben ik aan het proberen om met mijn Promarkers te kleuren. Alleen wil ik het eens op een andere manier gaan doen. Normaal gesproken kleur ik mijn afdrukjes eerst in met Promarkers. Vervolgens gebruik ik de kleurpotloden om schaduwen aan te brengen, zoals hier is gebeurt:


As you see on my workdesk this Wednesday I’m trying to colour with my Promarkers in a different way. Normally I colour my stamps with Promarkers first and then I use colour pencils for the shadows, like this:




Deze techniek heb ik geleerd tijdens een vakantie in Zweden, een paar jaar geleden. Maar wanneer je het op deze manier doet, worden de kleuren nogal hard... en dat is nu net iets wat ik niet iedere keer wil.


I learned this technique on my holiday in Sweden a few years ago. But when you do it this way the colours become very hard and I don’t always want that. In a show I saw a card coloured with Promarkers in a very soft way. And that’s what I want to try out now.



Voordat ik ga beginnen maak ik eerst een tabel met alle kleuren die ik wil gaan gebruiken. Op deze manier kan ik heel eenvoudig de juiste kleur kiezen die ik nodig heb. Daarnaast heb ik ook een 'werkbeschrijving' van Promarkers gevonden op Internet. Maar naast stukken tekst zijn er ook veel video's te vinden bij YouTube over dit onderwerp. Na het bestuderen van enkele instructies is het tijd om zelf aan de slag te gaan. En dit zijn de eerste resultaten.



First of all I make a tablet with all the useful colours. So now I can easily choose the right one. I also found a description of how to work with Promarkers on the Internet and there are also a lot of videos on YouTube too. After studying some of them it’s time to try it all by myself. And these are the first results.


Allereerst probeer ik mijn afdrukjes in te kleuren met twee of drie verschillende kleurnuances, maar uiteindelijk wil ik proberen om met één kleur in te kleuren en deze te blenden / vervagen tot het wit van het papier.


First I’m trying to colour with two or three different nuances but finally I want to try it with only one colour and blend it into the white of the paper.




Tot slot wil ik nog even vermelden dat je de stempelafdrukjes het beste kunt stempelen met een Dye Inkt. Ik heb dat niet gedaan en daardoor is de stempelinkt zich gaan vermengen met de inkt van de markers. Hierdoor worden, vooral de lichte kleuren, wat smoezelig. Een goede reden dus om deze week weer eens wat shopping te gaan doen.

Goed, dat was het weer voor deze week. Ik ga vlug verder met oefenen van deze boeiende inkleurtechniek.
En tot slot wens ik jullie allemaal een inspirerende WOYWW woensdag.

Finally I read that you have to stamp the prints with a dye-ink. I didn’t, and you can see that the Ink has smudged my colours. So that’s a good reason to go to a CraftShow this week and buy a new ink pad. 

So that’s it for this week. I’m going to get on with practising my colouring technique.
And have an inspiring WOYWW Wednesday.

The idea to go to a craft show just to buy an ink pad is a delicious thought! Your Promarker colouring is lovely.

What a very neat desk.. is the rest of the room as tidy? Love the tag, i have a real soft spot for hanglar images, i also find it very useful to make colour swatches of the pens i have {copics} it makes it sooooo much less hassle knowing exactly what colours you have.
Happy Wednesday

Love your new colouring techniques! I find my ink sometimes bleeds too. I find memento bleeds less than stazon but I use prismas and sansador though not promarkers. Great work, hugs Rebekah 75 xx

I love the softness of the colouring, it's beautiful. I think I prefer that actually. I'm going to have to check out the videos on youtube. Thank you!

I too went to look at Promarker videos- Letrasets own site has some good information too. Colouring is something I am trying to improve on Shaz #148

Julia Dunnit zei

Your colouring is great. Your reason to go to a show is fab!! Don't use Stazon inks for sure - they too are alcohol based inks like the pens, so they bleed into each other. Memento or embossed outlines seem to do the trick. YOu are clearly going to be a master colourer!

Sam zei

Love your colouring. I started with Copics as I bought a stamp and colours which I saw on a Blog. Decided to stick to one make as I do cross-stitch too and ended up with lots of different makes at one time!
Enjoy your tidiness! Maybe one day I will get round to it!!

Wow! I love this little step by step have watched the LOTV videos on Promarkers too they are good, I think I need a refresher.. and if you heat set your Memento or Archival ink (Memento is the one Joanna Sheen recommends with Promarkers but I do use Archival ink too) heat setting helps prevent running if you dont heat set it you need to wait a few hours to set properly cos still run a bit,or it does in our humid climate..but you may know that, Frankie!
Thanks for sharing and Happy WOYWW!
love Shaz in Oz.x

Thank you for passing on all the things you have learned. I am only just starting with the Promarkers. My favourite at the moment is my gorgeous set of Derwent watercolour pencils.
