How to Color Water and Glass with Copic Markers
How to Color Water and Glass with Copic Markers!
What’s up crafty friends! It’s Mindy on the blog today, from My Creative Scoop. I’m so happy to be sharing my passion with you all, Copic Markers. Dawn has created a gorgeous printable for you to color along with me. So print it out on come Copic friendly paper and let’s get to coloring. Notice my image doesn’t have a dark outline. I lowered my opacity, which makes my image look faded. This gives your image a soft look, also known as the ‘No Line Technique’.Feel free to leave your outlines dark if you find it more difficult. If you aren’t too sure about Copic Markers and/or just recently have purchased them, check out my FREE Beginner Copic E-Course.
I have some step by step by step photos for you all to follow along. The new color added will be in one of the corners of that photo. Sound good, let’s start coloring!

Notice when I color each petal, it’s darker towards the center of the flower and as I go down the sides of the petals it tapers off. Doing this instead of just stopping at a straight line creates roundness to the petals. Another tip to remember when coloring the white flower is to leave a white space. You only want to shadow the petal.
Alrighty, let’s keep going.
Now the fun part, How to Color Water and Glass with Copic Markers. As you start coloring the glass, just outline the line in B00. Then you will take BG10 and flick going towards the center of the glass, just enough to blend the B00. Notice in the second photo of the last row (in the above photo) I drew thin lines coming down from the rim of the glass. This helps to create that glass look. In the next photo, where I add BG15 to create the water, you want to make the glass look 3d so I have to make that oval to create that effect. I used my BG11 in the last photo flicking down going towards the bottom of the jar.
Make sure you draw a line through the bottom part of the oval (water) that is the apart that ‘appears’ closest to us and since we want the stems to look like they’re in the water we have to show the water in front of it. We want to make sure the the top oval (water) is behind though. Creating a little depth perception. 🙂
When adding the shadow below the jar I used the N3 outside the glass and the N1 inside the glass. Since the shadow would look faded through the glass and water.
I really hope you enjoyed this tutorial. I had so much fun creating it. If you are interested in learning more about my Copic Marker tips and projects come on over to My Creative Scoop and check out my projects, tutorials and courses!
