Color Mixing with Sharpies

Did you know that you can actually blend colors with Sharpies?

And that you can do this particularly well with brush Sharpies on canvas? Here’s one of my projects from my “Sharpie Art Workshop for Kids” book. I added darker colors on top of lighter colors, and then went back and forth with each to soften the blend. Don’t worry about damaging the tips, you just clean them off with a little extra coloring on scrap paper.

I love how it looks like a rich oil painting, with a whole lot less time and mess. For an extra shine, just spray or brush with a sealer. It will make the colors pop even more.

Consider this your Sharpie tip of the day!
