The color markers smear the black lines. Do you have this same problem?

We just try to be very careful when coloring, especially with lighter marker colors.

Sharpies are waterproof but alcohol-soluble...meaning they’re meant to blend with the color markers (or any other alcohol-based brands).

Also, be sure to use marker paper! It helps preserve your markers and is a blast to use.

Watch this video for more information on using markers.

Side note: Try using Sharpies and Crayola markers! Crayolas are water-based so you can color over the Sharpie lines as much as you want, with no bleeding. Although, I wouldn’t recommend Crayolas on marker paper. Watercolor paper is best for Crayolas!

I hope this helps!!!
