Hi Melissa,
I met you at Betty’s and you were kind enough to give me the color list from you copic class. I did not have any markers at the time so could not take the class. Do you ever give private lessons? I have an image of 3 boys dressed as wisemen that I want to color for Christmas cards. I have3 grand sons so it is just too cute. I need someone to help me pick out colors and some advice on shading.
Thanks so much
