For months I have tried to watch and read everything online about how to use COPICs and the theory behind the colors. I tried a lot, and recently have gotten usable results, but they still left me kind of baffled. When I saw that Sally Lynn MacDonald would be teaching a class locally, I jumped at the chance to go!
Yesterday, finally, I was able to get a grasp on the coloring formula and now I know in theory how to color and shade to get the best results. Now is the fun part - practicing... lots! :)
Ms. MacDonald (pictured with my friend Melissa and me above) was a wonderful instructor. She was genuinely so excited about the products, that all of the ladies in the class, couldn't help but be excited too. Not only did we get to see all of the basics, but she shared many neat ideas and samples to inspire us further.
If you have a chance to take a class locally, I suggest you do it.
