Hi everyone, Mou here with a handlettered and illustrated Halloween decor using Faber-Castell PITT Pens and Goldfaber color pencils!
To make this project, I am using the following:
Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pen B Studio Box of 48 - Crimson 134, Purple Violet 136, Magenta 133, Pale Geranium Lake 121, Dark Chrome Yellow 109, Orange Glaze 113, Green Gold 268, Raw Umber 180, Cold Grey IV 233, Light Flesh 132 and Black 199
Faber-Castell Color Pencil Goldfaber Metal Tin of 48
Now, let's start coloring.
This is an image I drew myself. You could draw your own or choose one from this printable collection.
Start by coloring the pumpkins with Stampers Big Brush pen Scarlet Red 118.
Color the leaves with Crimson 134, Purple Violet 136, Dark Chrome Yellow 109, Green Gold 268, and Pale Geranium Lake 121 as shown.
Add a second layer of color to the pumpkins in alternate sections as shown using Orange Glaze 113.
Color as follows -
- the acorns with Green Gold 268 and Cold Grey IV 233
- the oval ring border with Magenta 133
- the witch and cat with Cold Grey IV 233
- the broom with Raw Umber 180
- the moon with Light Flesh 132
Of course, these are just my color choices. Feel free to choose your own favorites.
Start filling in the letters with Stamper's Big Brush pen Walnut Brown 177, adding variations with Black 199 and Cold Grey IV 233.
Now that you have finished coloring the main design, it's time to fill in softer colors to the negative spaces. For that, I am using the Goldfaber Color pencils. I am staying with the same color palette that I chose for my PITT Pens. For a soft look, add the colors with gentle pressure and blend into one another.
Finally, color around the entire piece with the Grey 273 Goldfaber color pencil to finish.
