Color Swatch: Hair Color Combo 2, Blue-Black Hair


On this edition of Color Swatch I am tackling a Blue-Black Hair Combo with both Spectrum Noir and Copic Markers. With any black hair color combo I recommend going all the way to black, not just a dark grey, and that’s what I’ve done with these two combos…


Color Swatch by Kristy Dalman Blue Black Hair with Spectrum Noir

On both of the swatches I noted the paper I used to color these on. I’m getting better at using the bullet tips for hair. I’ll slowly switch out my chisel tips for brush tips but I’ll just look at it as practice until then. Besides the differences in how I laid down the actual color, I think this color combo really matches brand to brand. 

If you’d like to grab your own blank swatch to color your own of either or both of these combos, go to my first Hair Color Combo Color Swatch post and download your own copy.

The colored versions above are great to pin, save to your computer (just right click -> save image), or even print but remember, printing will not give you an accurate color like printing this on your prefered coloring paper and coloring it yourself will. With later combos and topics I will be having different swatches for you to use.

Please feel free to share these by linking back to my blog, and this post, so others can see all the information and grab their own blank swatches.

Any requests for the next Swatch?

I’ll see you for our next Color Along tomorrow at 1pm!

    How do you like the hammermill for use with Spectrums? I am hesitant on getting cause I don’t know how the blending is. 

    • Kristy says:

      I do not like the xpress it with the spectrums. I’ve tried xpress it, neenah and the hammermill and the hammermill is my fav. I haven’t tried the crafters companion paper but I’d give the hammermill a go. If you don’t like it you can still die cut, stamp on or make card bases out of it.

    Thanks for this. I normally never would use the blue but I actually like how it turned out 🙂

  • Sue-Ann says:

    Just wanted to stop in and say thank you for understanding that my brain and budget have sometimes collected pens from both brands and ….. Maybe…. Perhaps… I’ve wanted to do spectrum: copic side by sides but I got distracted by something shiny and never got round to doing so….
