Thanks for the great tutorial links!

I tend to like plain 'ol craft ink. It's juicy and has a nice deep color to it. Water color pencils are fun too!


My favorite thing to use when coloring stamps are chalks and watercolors.


I like coloring in with colorpencils.

thanks I love coloring in with my copics, I am glad to be able to find help on shading.


I currently use watercolor pencils or markers, but I'm hoping to purchase some Copics soon.

I LOVE using VERY thin markers/pens. I use them to journal, doodle, and outline. Makes me feel happy when I find a pen/marker that writes really well and looks great!

I like colouring with Copics bc I find it really fast compared to other media. However I also enjoy using pencils (Kohinoor or Prismacolor) with baby oil/Gamesol. You can achieve the same look at a much cheaper price which means more money to buy stamps :)

All of these tutorials and stampers are wonderful examples of exceptional coloring technique! Thanks for sharing those with us, Darcy. I have two favorites. My first favorite are my Copics - and I was lucky enough to take the Copic Certification Class from THE Marianne Walker (with Sherrie Siemens). Still haven't perfected my technique, but still love to pull those colorful markers out and use them. Such great therapy. My second favorite coloring medium are my Lyras and Gamsol. It takes so much more time and effort than the Copics, but I love, love, love the end result. Thanks for the chance to win some of your beautiful stamps!!

no copic markers for me, i just use markers from inque boutique or watercolor pencils is how i first started. :-)


I love my Primsacolor markers! They work great and they were more affordable for me.


My favorite right now is watercolor pencils. I love blending it!

My favorite coloring technique is chalk. It is easy and very forgiving. The shades are subtle and can be adjusted to light or darker, according to the depth of color desired. I use them to color in a lot. I have used the Glimmer chalks also. They add shimmer to the design, especially the Pearlescent shade. I’m from the South, and they make a beautiful magnolia blossom. Thanks for the opportunity, and I enjoy your postings. Nancy E

Thanks Nancy! - Darcy

My favourite colouring medium at the moment is my Derwent watercolour pencils which I adore. I would love to use the Copic markers but cannot find somewhere in Australia to purchase them wholesale if I can. But I do see some beautiful colouring done with them.

Jennifer Priest

Definitely Copics for me. I hated stamping and coloring and then I got some Copics and love them! I now seek out stamps that I can color in just so I can use my copics.


I absolutely LOVE to color stamps. Right now I'm doing mostly Prismas with Mineral oil. This technique is easy and I like the results. I also like to watercolor. Getting Copics is definitely next on my wishlist. The results are incredible!

I like using chalk 'cause I can blend it with my finger...but I should get with the times and start using some copics!!!


I am just learning how to use watercolor pencils and a little water pen to smooth the color out. I've also used too much water and damaged my paper.


I have never used Copic markers.....but interested! I use colored pencils. Thanks for the tutorials! cherry


Thanks for all the great links! I love my copic markers.


I LOVE my markers. There are just so many things you can do with them! I love that I can use so many different colors on a stamp and have the colors the way I want them instead of having an outline in black or a color I don't want.

Debbie Frost

I've used Prisma colored pencils and have just started using Copic markers. I love the bright colors I've seen with the Copics, so I've been inspired to learn how to use them.

Anita A.

My favorite coloring is Twinkling H2O's from Luminarte. I love how the color can be many shades depending how much water you use and how many layers you put on the object.

Samantha S

I am a little shy about coloring, but when I do I use watercolor pencils or crayola crayons...just kidding...I have never tried the copics , but I am thinking about it. Thanks for a chance to win!


I am comfortable with my water color pencils, but I love the rich color of Copics and Prismas. I've recently bought a few of each and am so happy to see your list of tutorials. Thanks.
