Marker Geek Monday: Prismacolor Skin Combos featuring Surfer Littles

This week for Marker Geek Monday I’m fulfilling a request to show some Prismacolor coloured pencil colouring, featuring one of the NEW stamp sets from the Summer 2017 release!

Prismacolor Coloured Pencil Skin Combos:

Recently I’ve had a few requests to show some more coloured pencil colouring, specifically Prismacolor pencils. I thought I would start by experimenting with some different skin tones and sharing the results!

The stamp set featured in today’s post is the awesome new LITTLES SURFER stamp set (coordinating die set also available).

A quick note about the new LITTLES stamp sets – these sets are utterly adorable and lots of fun to play with in terms of creating scenes. They also happen to be great for colouring, and specifically for practicing blending and colouring. They are small, the girl shown below is approx. 1 3/4″ tall, but have less fine details than the usual Stamping Bella style, so are a little easier to practice shading and adding your own details.

The “skin combos” shown are by no means the only combos that exist, or even the “best”. These are just the results of a little play time, trying out some different colours together. Use them as inspiration for your own colouring, as a jumping off point to experiment with your own combinations. The hair and outfit colours are the same for each, only the skin colours differ.

    I have Prisma colored pencils and I have Sienna Brown but none of the other colors. I do have some General’s Pastel Chalk Pencils in Neutral Colors. There are 8 and that’s what I use for skin tones but with chalk’s I worry about them coming off. I also have a 64 box of Crayola Pencils so I also have skin tones in there. I am going to have to check out there colors and see if they match what you did. Thanks for showing this to us. I’m going to save it to my crafts folder and then print it out for my crafts binder. You are the best at showing us what to do! Love you!
