Monday Method Hair and Skin Coloring TUTORIAL

How is everyone today?? Well today is Monday Method over at Instyle Stamps and today is my turn to HOST it. And guess what????? Alot of my bloggin friends has been asking me to do a HAIR coloring tutorial...... and not only do I have a hair coloring tutorial for you ... I have also added a skin tutorial!! You have asked and I have finally answered and came through with it!!
So today I have used two images and the first one is this little cutie and her name is Mieko. And this is what the finished projects will look like!!!
Are you ready to get started????

Here is Mieko that I printed out on PTI card stock. Here is the list of colors I will be using for Mieko.... E51,E53,E13,E15, and a little of E17 ( you don't have to use all these colors, it can be done with just 3 colors)
I started with E51, as you can add more darker colors, but you can't make it lighter if you start with the darker color if you add too much of it.
I started with the E51, and make thin stokes not going over where I want the lightest or no color to be added. The key is to make her hair look like strainds of hair!

Here she is after I finished with the E51.

Next I added E53 and did the same thing, just let some of the E51 show through. We will add more E51 later. And here is what she looks like after the E53 was added.

Now I used E13 and added just a little more darker color.

Now where there is no color, use 0 Colorless blender and go over the white area and blend just alittle into the E51(your lightest color).

Here is what she looks like after the colorless blender was used.

Next use E15 and do the same thing.. add more of the E15 to the areas where you want her hair to be the darkest.

Then I went and added just a tad of E17 in the around her ears and neck.
Last step.. Use E51 again and blend the colors together alittle more. So there's not so much white ( still using the same strokes),then go over just the lightest part with the Colorless Blender and blend the E51 in more.

Here is is finished.

Okay so now I am going to show you how I color Skin. Here are the colors I used from darkest to lightest. E11,E01,E00,and E000.

I started with E01 the second to the darkest and colored around the shadow areas.

Now use E00 and color in most of the skin and blend E01 and E00 together. Leave some areas for the lightest part where the sun would be shinning in his face.

Color the white areas left with E000, blending together with E00 you already colored.

Now for the darkest color (E11) that will shape his face and give hime more shadows around his face and hair.

Use E01 and go over the E11 areas and blend them together.

And if you need to blend more or add more color just repeat the same steps. I have go over mine a few times before I get it to my liking. And now Brandon's face is finished.

Next we are going to color Brandon's hair. Here are the colors I used from darkest to lightest.
E79,E77,E74,E71 and Colorless Blender.
I started with E74( the second to the lightest) using the same steps as I did with Mieko.

Then I used E71 next, covering more of the white.

Next I used E77, still the same steps as earlier.

Now for the darkest color E79. I colored where I wanted his hair to be the darkest.

Then I went back and added more E74.

And now for the last step I used E71 and added more color and then used O Colorless Blender and blended the E71 and white together. Then again I used E71 and went back over where I had added the E71 color just to blend it alittle more.
Here is Brandon finished.

Well this was a long tutorial, but so well worth it!! I hope it was for you too!! And thanks for stopping by today and if you have any questions on my tutorial.. Please feel free to leave me a comment and let me know!!
