Coloring White with Copic BG Color Comb

Hello everyone! 
here with a Mini Video on coloring "white" with a Copic BG Color Combo.
There are many different color combo's that can be used to color white.
The colors  are used very sparingly because it is only used to add dimension.
The color picks up color from the area surrounding object.
For example, the white on this little sailor picks up the shadow color from the ocean.
I will use a BG Combo for this tutorial. .
Other fun colors to use to shade white are the gray colors.  For example, the cool "C" colors,
"T" toner, "N" neutral and the "W" warm colors, as well as the
Blue and Blue Green work well .    Other colors have been used as well such as RV :D
