    Practice & exsperiment
    also try blo pens.. I do pet "tatoos" using stencils & blopens, its pretty easy & you can get some Really detailed stuff (shorter hair= sharper tatoo)
    if you go look at my website under creative pictures you can see some of my pet tatoos maybe give you some ideas

      learning creative styling

      The best way to learn is exactly where you are!! The pages of this board and petgroomer.com are filled with different ways and styles. I started a few years back coloring my Standard poodle after reading about it here and now I do clients dogs. I try stuff I read about here on my dogs until I perfect it and then move onto clients dogs. Goodluck and enjoy!

        Wow Watt-a-Dog!

        Those tattoos are pretty cool! Maybe you could go into more detail as how you do them?!

          Watt-a-Dog..wonderful grooms! the cockers are very well done. umm...i see how you used the blow-pens...but i've seen people color the dog's long hair and then scissor the hair to a certain shape (mostly seen on poodles) according to the desired design. I would like to know how to set basic patterns for that.

            you mean like this?
            I marked my patternout with blow pens then clippered away the bulk of the hair around the pattern with a 7 and used a speed feed to "tighten up" the detailed bits, then scissored the pattern in the way I wanted, & freehanded the coulour with the blo-pens.
            Thanks fer the complement

                WOW Wattadog. That poodle looks fantastic. Look out Dawn Omboy. Watta-dog is moving in.
                If your dog is fat, you are not getting enough exercise!

                  Thats what im talking about. I would like to learn how to do that. ummm...is there another way to do that w/o clipping the dog's hair really short around the patern? I have seen it where the dogs coat is the same length all over, but somehow the pattern is set within the coat (w/o clipping the rest of the coat around it) does anyone get it? Sorry this is hard to explain.

                      Blo-pen is a childrens Airbrush, looks like a marker sorta and you blow through the end to apply the colour like an airbrush.

                      LOL.. dont think im That good yet, think Dawns safe, I dont get many to practice on, that was Harrys @Special Christmas groom, I dont normally get to do him up like that.

                      just use scissors to shape the coat to the patern you want.. Id segest marking out where you want you pattern, dips etc first but same idea, just use scissors & dont go so short...when your doing your patern try picturing what you want in 3D and then aplly that to the coat.. hmmm hope that made sense....
