If you haven’t heard about Promarkers they are sort of colouring in for grown ups. They are different though to normal colouring pens that you used as a child as they are alchol based. This means that they can be blended and dont leave pen line marks in your colouring in. They are also permenent and can be used on..

It may sound corny but the only imitations is your own imagination. I have been using them on image stamps from the brilliant site of Pink Petticoat and have even dabbled with using them on canvas blocks.
You can buy a blender pen within the promarker range, at the moment I don’t have one though one is on order. So the method I am using to blend without the blender pen is to pick three shades of the same colour. I colour the section I am working on in the lightest colour, then add the medium, then the darkest. I leave it for a while as the colours do change as they dry ( only slightly). If then I want to blend a bit more I go over the section again using the lightest colour. It is though best to play around and see which technique works best with the effect your after. I did find though I had to work a bit quicker with lending when I was working on the canvas as it tended to dry quicker.
