Art Marker Techniques: Transitioning between two colours from different families

With blendable art markers, you can create your own unique palette of colours and shades. And transitioning between two different colours will create depth and shade, producing an elevated finished result.

The alcohol-dye ink in Spectrum Noir art markers creates a smooth and seamless transition between colours effortlessly.  Take a look below for an easy-to-follow video guide. 

  • This technique works best with colours that are different but that share some similarities. For example, blue with a hint of green and teal.
  • Being by applying the lightest of the two colours
  • Next, apply the darker colour, partially overlapping the lighter colour
  • Apply the lighter colour over the boundary between the two until you’re happy with the blend

Each Spectrum Noir Art Marker, whether a Classique, Illustrator or TriBlend, is filled with premium alcohol dye-ink - perfect for experimenting with colour transitions. For best results, we recommend heavyweight, smooth and uncoated paper that will minimise colour bleed.
