I used one of the gift certificates I received for Christmas to buy a Copic airbrush. One of the things I really like about it is that since it uses Copic pens, there’s really no clean-up. I’m still learning the basics, but what fun! I have quite a collection of brass stencils, so I selected one with a lighthouse on it and here is what I created.
After I removed the stencil from the background, I decided that the overspray made a nice frame, so I added a little more color and cut about 1/4” away from the stencil border. The yellow card I used for a background isn’t really that bright, I don’t know why it scanned that way, the rest of the colors are about right. It’s closer to the shade of the yellow on the lighthouse lamp.
This was a lot of fun to make and I’m looking forward to collecting some more colors. Right now, all I have is blue, red, yellow and brown. They’re fairly expensive, so I’ve been using 40% and 50% off coupons to buy them one at a time from Michaels.
