You can print the image to any size you like, though the larger it is the harder it may be to get good coverage with the techniques. I would recommend starting at the class size. I’ve printed the NO LINES version as this will give a softer finish. There is no difference in the technique for colouring either the no lines or black lines image.
The size I've used in the class video is 10cm high (3.95”). If you are new to resizing images, please view my handy video here!
You can use any colour blends to do this class and any brand of markers! Simply choose any colour blend from your collection, or view the ones I’ve used below.
