My campaign to promote #thehumanrainbow – encouraging crafters to color multiple hues of skintones on crafty projects – has been going on for years now – just a few of the projects are collected here.

The first posts are all in Copic – at the end are just a few in colored pencil. I clearly need to do more in pencil! Click on any picture to get to the blog post with video!

Note that while some of these videos may say the Human Rainbow free charts are here on my blog, they’ve been moved into one set now over on my teaching site HERE.
