Step 4: Black lines to finish the drawing of the unicorn

Iron a black marker for the drawing of the unicorn's mane

Iron with a fine black felt on the curves of hair and corne of the unicorn. Indeed, coloring can reduce the marking of lines. The passage of a black pencil will bring out the color contrasts.
