Part 5 of Coloring Pages Bliss’ Sharpie video series shows us how to:
-Color with a light sharpie base layer
-Blend and shade over that with colored pencils
As Jennifer suggests, this is nice easy way to lay on color and blend without a lot of work. It also saves on expensive pencils, since you’re mainly highlighting and shading with them.
