Spectrum Noir Clothes Part 2 will show you some little tricks with the Blender Pen
This short video will show you how to get the blend correct for the image that we have been using throughout these tutorials ... and in particular some tricks with the Blender pen.
This particular pen causes some people a lot of problems.
Mostly because it is the wrong way to describe it.
The blender pen will not blend two colours together and can make a real mess of your project in the attempt.
It will do lots of amazing things but mostly it will bleach out colours rather than blending them.
But with the bleaching effect of this pen you can get some lovely effects on your images with very little effort.
Over the course of this series I will show you other ways to get the best from these pens and then you will not be disapointed with what you produce.
But like all new things it takes time to learn about and get used to using a new product ... so give yourself a break and remember to be patient as you learn.
One main thing to take into account is that if you are not happy with the look that you are creating then it is NOT the pens that are to blame.... it is the PAPER that you are colouring on ... and the Introduction to the pens will explain further.
