    New to using Glitter Pens? Here are 6 Glitter Pen using techniques you need to know.

    1. Cross Hatching and Stippling:

               Cross hatching means you're making tiny grids with intersecting sets of parallel lines. The closer together the lines are, the darker your colored image will appear. Stippling is just a fancy way of saying you're creating a pattern using lots of tiny dots. Place the dots closer together for darker areas of color and further apart for lighter colors.

    2. Blending :

               For this technique, you want to use two different gel pens. Start with the "1st" color, then color your "2nd" pen over top of the edge of the shaded area and into the next section of your design. Repeat as necessary until you've achieved the desired effect.



     3. Painting:

             Start coloring with your darkest gel pen, then blend the area with a wet paintbrush so the color slowly fades away. If you don’t have actual paintbrushes, an extra makeup brush works just fine!

    4. Combine with Markers:

              When it comes to coloring books, you don't need to limit yourself to just one medium. Combining your gel pens with markers can create some interesting effects.
