Here's another way of painting with felt tips - but you don't need brushes or water this time!
You will need:
|The idea is to do a picture and colour it with felt tips the same way you would a painting.|
|Start by drawing a picture with light pencil or light felt tip pen.|
Now choose the colours you'll need.
You probably won't have the exact colours you want, so choose the one that's closest.
|Go over the picture and use the felt tip to shade all the areas of the picture that you want to be that colour.|
Next choose a darker colour for the darker shades.
Again, pick the nearest colour.
|Block in the shade...|
|You can't mix lots of subtle colours or shades like when you paint, but with this technique choosing a colour closest to the one you want creates a really funky effect.|
|If you want white, just leave the white of the paper showing through.|
|You can even add highlights by leaving white...|
|...and don't forget brown and black for the really dark bits of the picture.|
And that's it - finished.
And because none of the colours are perfect you get a great effect.
Try it yourself!
