  1. Choose a New Color: Say you would like to create Frosted Pink.
  2. The Two Colors to Mix Together: Silver + Magenta Pink.
  3. Mix the Two Colors: Color in with the silver pen first. Then color on top of it with the Magenta-Pink. This will produce the new Frosted Pink color.

Tips for Success

  1. Every frosted color is made the same way. Color first with the silver pen, then color on top with the color of choice. Refer to the color swatches for each desired color.
  2. Both dry and wet mixing work. You can wait for the silver to completely dry, or color on top of it when it is still wet. Either way works. Usually the wet version produces a lighter variation. 
  3. Press your picture under books. When coloring with gel pens, and especially when overlaying colors, you may get raised areas on your picture. We always recommend pressing your page under a stack of books between colorings and before taking photos. It makes for a beautiful, perfectly flat picture! 

Experimenting is fun, and you never know what you might discover…. Enjoy!
