O ya and one more thing how do you blend markers? Colleen E. Cartwright
replies: "Well, blending markers is very simple, but rather hard to explain... okay, lets say you have three shades of red: light red, medium red, and dark red. You are going to color a dragon. First, find the darkest place on the dragon, and or where the shadows are, like on the back of it's legs, around the bottem of it's face, the bottem of it's feet... you know, that kind of stuff. Color these places first, with the darkest color of red. Then, find the second darkest places. Color over the dark red with the medium color of red, and spred it out farther than the dark, but do not color the whole body of the dragon. Last of all, find the lightest place on the dragon. Color over the dark & the medium red, and let all the colors blend together. Now for some art tips: make sure you use heavy paper, because it can soak thru normal paper, and make holes in it. If you only have normal paper, then make sure that when your coloring, you don't press the markers down too hard. Now, if you are planing on doing this, I'll tell you which kind of markers to use. Use the skinny crayola markers, not the big fat ones. They have more of a variety of colors to try out. You can get a set of 20 for about 12$, those are what I normally buy. Sorry it took so long for the reply, and if your blending dosn't work the first time, try again & practice. I hope this helps... "
