Colour Class Ice Greys is the start of a series of tutorials to help you get the best from your pens.
Since their introduction they have gone from strength to strength as they fill so many gaps for the new colourist.
They are an affordable way to build up your collection of Alcohol Marker Pens and once you have them you will never need to buy that pen again.
There are links to other Colour Class in the sidebar on your right.... just click the photo.
This pen system is available from Crafters Companion
The video Spectrum Noir Introduction will tell you all about these pens.
The best way to start is with the six pen sets and build up from there.

But whatever you decide to colour you will get a unique look.
Please remember to choose your paper carefully as a bad result will not be the pens.
Enjoy the process and have fun
