Making clouds with the activatorspray

 Hi Copic friends,

This is my first Copic Tutorial for the Copic Marker Europe Blog.
 I decided to teach you how to make clouds with the Activator Spray.

Start with making a background with your Airbrush.


For the next step you will need a rubber stamp (I'm using a cloud-stamp  by Katzelkraft), an acrylic stampingblock, a bottle of Copic Activator and a tissue.


Spray the Activator on the rubber Cloud stamp.
 
Remove the excess of the Activator Spray from your acrylic stamping block with a tissue.

Tip: Do this immediately after spraying because Activator Spray evaporates very quickly.
 

Stamp the clouds on your background. 

Press it gently and let the stamp rest for a few seconds so the Activator Spray can react with Copic Ink.

When you remove the stamp, you will see that the ink has been diluted  by Activator Spray.
It  looks a bit smudgy now, but the print will get more crisp if you give the spray a litte time to dry.

I've  used different cloud stamps  to create  a beautiful cloud cover.
 

I've used a limited range of Copic colours.

So you can see that you can create maximum impact with just a few colours.
All the stamps I have used, are by Kaztelkraft.


Here are the colours I've used for this project.:

Sky: B04
Grass: YG05
Blue shades: B000-B00-B01-b02-B05
Orange/yellow shades: YR02- YR04-YR07-YR09 and Y11-Y13-Y17-Y19
Yellow shades:Y11-13-17-19
Orange shades: YR02- YR04-YR07-YR09
Green shades: YG01-YG03-YG05-YG09
Grey shades: C0-C1-C3
Pink: R20
Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,

Hoi Saskia, ik zag dit bericht op de Katzelkraft-site. Ik vond de naam zo Hollands, ik denk dat gaan we eens even googlen. Zo leuk hoe je ze allemaal hebt gecombineerd. En zo lekker kleurig! Ik heb zelf de kattenstempels. Ze zijn zo gaaf.... De norse pinguïns staan trouwens nog op mijn verlanglijstje.

Misschien een domme vraag. Kun je de wolkjes ook met de Copic cleaner-vloeistof maken? Lijken deze vloeistoffen op elkaar?
