Coloring Fair Skintones with Spectrum Noir Blendable Pencils


I have been playing around with my Spectrum Noir colored pencils, experimenting with some different colors for fair skin tones, and I put together a little step-by-step tutorial for Spectrum Noir to show you how I achieve creating skin tone highlights and shadows using the Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencils, available from Crafter’s Companion. Please visit the Spectrum Noir Blog for step by step photos, as well as the color list used for this project.
