Pleats Tutorial

I was recently asked to do a "pleats" tutorial and so
that is what this blog is about.
The colors I used are for Copic markers, but, of course,
you can do the exact same thing with any type of alcohol markers.
I was asked to separate this out....
With pleats, you are just adding color right next to color and blend them well.

Your third color is next.

 I hope you are noticing that I am doing 2 at one time.  The long
pleat and the short pleat.

Be sure to keep blending...

Before going on to the next set of pleats,
If you have lightened your dark colors too much,
go back over them again. 

Keep working your way around the dress until you have completed it.
The completed dress is up above.
I hope this is helpful to you and
hope to see you again soon.
