Second Copic® coloring guide released by Annie's Attic
The popularity of Copic markers continues to grow in the paper-crafting arena. As a result, there is more and more need for instructional material to assist crafters in achieving successful coloring results using the high-quality markers.
The 64-page book is the next step in the Coloring Guide series, offering information and educational material for crafters in all skill levels. From the introductory suggestions for creating a Copic journal and tips for working with digital images, to explanations of the advanced blending techniques and detailed tutorials for coloring specific objects, the book presents useful information in an easy-to-follow format.
A bonus CD comes with the book that contains all of the hand-drawn images used in the tutorial section of the book, along with the assembly instructions for all of the projects.
Colleen Schaan and Marianne Walker, Copic certification instructors and coloring specialists, have partnered to provide expert coloring instruction, with sample projects supplied by top Copic coloring artists from across the country.
Schaan is a regional Copic certification instructor and team member of the Fine Art Education program. She travels extensively to lead workshops, demonstrations and trade shows.
Walker is the product director for Imagination International Inc., where she develops product publications and certification manuals. She also travels throughout the United States teaching drawing and coloring classes at trade shows, stores and art schools.

She is a strong promoter of the art of paper crafting and has coordinated joint publishing efforts with paper crafting companies such as Spellbinders, Provo Craft and Copic to produce a number of paper crafting pattern books.
