DRAWING PATENT LEATHER + LIGHT FAUX FUR
In this fashion drawing tutorial, we are working with one of the sexiest and most provocative textures ever? – patent leather. We are going to render it in two different colors – red and black. The technique works for any colors though. All you need is just 2-3 tones of the same hue + blender if you work with markers. In addition to patent leather, I’ll show you how to draw a light faux fur coat?
Let’s do it✨
Patent leather is a type of leather with a linseed oil–based lacquer coating. Nowadays patent leather often has a plastic coating. It is easily recognized by its glossy finish. As a result, patent leather is frequently confused with poromeric imitation leathers such as Kuraray Co.’s Clarino and DuPont’s Corfam which are synthetic materials with a similar shiny look.

*If you use markers of a different brand, check out this Promarker color chart to match the colors.
STEP 1 – SKETCH PREPARATION
In Step 2, we are going to watch a video tutorial, where I am showing how to render a patent leather and a faux fur coat on a croquis. We will be drawing a red top, a black skirt and a black pair of pumps – all made of patent leather.
You can prepare your own sketch or you can download free FSketcher template that I’ve created purposefully for this class. Just click on the image below.
STEP 2 – SKETCH RENDERING
Under the video, I included extra information and exercises on rendering, such as lighting, draping, etc. You can check them before or after watching the tut?? Enjoy 😉
STEP 3 – DESIGN PROJECT
You can’t imagine how happy I get when you tag me in your works made with FSketcher techniques in Instagram? You can share your illustration made using this lesson’s technique in a comment section below. I most probably will notice it faster since I am here all the time?
