8/23 Ann Katrin's thicker technique

Use your thickers!

I have a lots of thickers and sometimes I need them in different colors and
now I will show you how:

I often use: glimmer mist (spray paint), paint, ink and glitter and thickers in foam:

I love to use paint on thickers, it’s perfect for the dark colored/black thickers:

I often use ink (chalk ink) to get a soft look:

For a dirty/vintage look, I use distress ink:

Glimmer mist gives almost the same results as ink and you can vary the colors:

It’s all about the glitter, I love glitter. You can use it above paint/ink or just like this on the top:

Thanks for reading and I hope you got some tip and maybe you can use some of your leftovers?

I too color my thickers as you do. Great tips...such a shame to have them not used because they are the wrong color.

Great ideas, love the idea of altering the color of the Thickers. I have a couple of packages just sittin' I'm going to get them out and have some fun! I bet Copic markers would work well on them too, but I love the Dabbers and Glimmer Mist!
