At Last.........Colouring Hair with Promarkers

At last I have been able to sort out the next part to my Promarker Colouring Tutorial. Work has been so tiring this week, not really been fit for anything by the time I have gotten home.
Anyway hoping to get lots made today's as everything is done, only got the ironing but will do that much, much later!!!!
Ok so here goes,
Tutorial No. 2a: Hair:
I use allsorts of colours for the hair, I particularly like Burnt Orange, looks lovely! But here cos of the papers I intend to use I am going to do Blonde Hair, but this same process could be used for other colours and I'll explain at the end, what I do.
1. Using SANDSTONE I usually colour where I imagine the dark shade is usually with blond it tends to be at the roots. Also where the shadow would be around the face and behind the front sections.
2. Then using MUSTARD I go back over the SANDSTONE and extra leaving the ends for a lighter shade and Highlights. As you can see going over the SANDSTONE with the MUSTARD it blends the two colours together.
3. Then using BUTTERCUP I go over the whole of the hair again, this time colouring all the uncoloured areas. This really blends all the colours well.
4. Finally I go over the darker areas again with SANDSTONE just to give the hair a little more depth.
I hope you have found this useful.
For other colours all I do is choose 3 shades and then do the same again, but make sure the darker is first, followed by the middle shade and finally the lighter shade.
Thanks for all your lovely comments. Which part would you like to see coloured next. For a future Tutorial, I was thinking of making a card from start to finish, I know there are a lot of experienced crafters out there but I'm sure there are some people who are new and hopefully, it will, help so if you have any tips to share, let me know and I'll include them too!
Right I'm off to craft and play. And get ready for my fabulous news which involves my favourite stamps!!!!
Have a lovely day, the sun is shining already and its only 7 o'clock.
