quick tip: Make your colours portable


Until May 8—we extended the deadline!—we’re asking you to show us your colours. What are the colourful tools you use to enhance your creativity? From paint palettes to pigments, we want to know what makes your mediums of colour special to you. 

Cleo Papanikolas, a painter and illustrator from California, sent us this quick tip on how to take your colours with you.

"Keep a little colour in your pocket wherever you go. Use tube paints of watercolour or gauche. Paint a spot of each colour on a piece of card stock. Paint a thick layer, but not so thick that it will crack when it dries. Staple a piece of waxed paper to the card as a coversheet. You can re-wet the paint with water and highlight your sketches with a little colour."  

Be sure to tell us what colour means to you by May 8, and you could be featured in the next issue of UPPERCASE magazine. Click here to send us your submission!
