How to color a snowman using sketch pen on a Silhouette Curio

Hey hey,

So I always liked the idea of coloring in things with my silhouette ever since I first discovered the sketch pen holders. With the help of my mom I finally got it working to actually color in whole area’s or make fun patterns in other area’s. I thought I’d film us creating a snowman using fine liners and gel pens and make a little tutorial video to share here on YouTube.

This is the finished result:

My mom also made another version of the snowman for a Christmas card:

And here is the video:

We did have some problems with the fine liners where they bled a lot. I think this is because of the space we set to 1.0 mm which might have been a bit to close together. So setting the space to a higher setting should prevent the bleed. I think the fine liners we used were 4.0 mm so theoretically setting the space to 4.0 mm should still mean the curio is going to fully color in the spaces.
