Day 2 of Copic's Online Class included some tips and tricks of blending and clearly I need all the tricks I can get because it is hard! I am feeling better with it today and more natural as I hold the copic's and flick and feather. Bob keeps reminding me to write down the color combo I am using and I have remembered a few times. I can see that practice is necessary and I consolidated all of my markers into a plastic box so that I can experiment. So far.. FUN!
