Platinum Blonde Hair coloring Tutorial

I have to say that I was a little nervous putting this, my very first Copic Coloring Tutorial together for the Mad For Markers Blog together, but I am happy with the end result and I hope you are too! Now I have to mention that  I am NOT Copic certified. So this tutorial is just how I color Platinum Blondes. Hope you like it and find it helpful. So first up this a picture of the colors I have used, E55, E53, E51 and E50.

First off grab your E55 marker and starting with the fringe lay a little bit of color at the top and bottom of the fringe like in the picture.

Next up grab your E53 and lay a bit of color above and below where you have colored with the E55 on the top and bottom of the fringe. Do the same thing next with your E51. You should now have three different rows of color on the top and bottom of the fringe and a white gap in the middle.

Ok, so next you grab your E50 and add a small amount of color to the top and bottom of the fringe leaving a very small line of white to create the appearence of a shine. Using the E50 again blend the top and bottom of the fringe so that there are now no definite lines from each color you have put down. Like in this photo below. You now can't see the exact line of where each color has been done.

Now onto the rest of the hair. Take your E55 and put some dark color in around her face and a few more over her hair. See the photo below.

Next up is to take your E53 and put some color near where you have put your E55, but remember that you still have two more colors to add in so make sure to leave room for those colors.

The next color you will add is E51. Add some lines around the ones you have already put done.

Last of all you need to grab your E50 and blend the rest of the hair together and there you have it, your Platinum Blonde is all done!

I hope I have inspired you to give this hair color a go.
