I just started stamping. I have no experience with colouring stamps at all. The idea of using alcohol markers (Copics) was daunting. There seems to be a lot of technique required and wow are they expensive to buy here in Canada!
I perused web sites for alternatives, and thought I'd try the colour pencil-solvent method. I am allergic to most solvents, so I decided to use baby oil (it comes unscented). I still have a lot of practising to do, but for a first attempt, I am pretty pleased with the result on this cute little mouse.
I shelled out some cash for a set of 12 Prismacolor pencils, but found that plain old Crayolas work just as well.
