This industrial design tutorial for a glass decanter using Copic Markers is brought to you from Begüm Tomruk.
This glass decanter designed by Menu is one of my favorite products. In this tutorial I'll explain how I use markers to render glass and brushed metal surfaces.
- Copic A3 Marker Pad
- Ball Point Pen
- Copic Airbrush System, such as ABS-2
- Copic Classic Markers: N0, N1, N3, N5, N7, N9, YG01, YG05, YG07, YG41, 100, 110
Step 1: First layers with Copic N0 and N1
For the stainless steel and plastic cap I start creating the first layers with N5. For the glass it's always better to start with a N0 and N1.
For the metal effect we always need black in combination with white and grey transitions.
For a colorful drink inside the decanter, I use the Copic Air Can D60 with YG01. The masking can be created with another piece of paper on top, or using X-Press It Mask It sheets.
Adding some black the glass helps to show thickness in the decanter. I also used YG07 to add some shading to the drink.
