I have seen many of you mention them and how great they are to use. I found out today that my husbands Drafting supply company sells them and I can get them for a discounted price. So tell me what different kinds of things I can use them for. What kind specifically would you suggest I get? Pictures would be great. TIA

The only thing I know about them is that they are expensive!!! I bought one and I mean ONE at a LSS and nearly fainted at the price (I think it was $7) and it wasn't even the color I wanted .Lesson learned read the sign and read the label on the pen!!!Laugh

Most crafters use them in conjunction with rubber stamping. These markers can actually be blended with one another to create contrast without bleeding. I decided to invest because I can color in my stamped images faster than when working with color pencils, chalks, etc. The end result comes out clean and I love the end result.

I have a set of Copic markers. I have only used them a few times. Check out http://www.youtube.com/user/Chris416ward Creations with Christina - she is pretty good with them.

I have a few pictures on my blog of cards that I used Copics on. I love mine! They are expensive, but refillable. I always buy mine at a LSS with a $5 off $25 purchase, or $10 off $40 purchase coupon. I also have picked some up at Hobby Lobby when they go on sale. HTH

I use Copics as well. If you check out my blog most of my cards are colored with them. There are some online sites that sell than much cheaper. ICopic for example sells then for under $5 each.

The trick is learning the color theory behind them. The markers are divided into color families, ex. Reds, Earthtones, etc. The Sketch markers generally hold more ink so they need to be refilled less plus they do not roll off your table.

The first number after the letter (which denotes the Color Type) denotes the color saturation. Zero would be the most intense while nine is the least (the higher the number the more gray).... The second number denotes the Color Brightness in that color family. The higher this number the brighter the color.

The key is to purchase natural blending groups. Download a color wheel from the Copic site to see this in action. An example would be YG05, YG06 and YG07. To avoid disappointment with these markers it is best to purchase blending groups initially until you get comfortable working with them. There are some wonderful websites you can check out plus if you get on the Copic website you can find certified designers near you. You might be able to take a class! I love them! Best of luck!

A high quality paper is key to success with these markers. Plus you must use certain inks to stamp your images! Memento for example can be used with no heat setting! Enjoy!

So let me start out by saying... HOW JEALOUS I AM OF YOUR COPIC DISCOUNTS>... when i took drafting IN highschool we used copics.. LOVE THEM!!!

And saying that I own a total of 13 markers, and I use them all the time mainly for colouring in stamps!

There is a great tutorial for beginners at this site:

I just got copics a few weeks ago and I am loving them.. I have to say there is a learning curve with them so practice is the key.. If you can get them at a discounted price you are a lucky girl... I have been getting mine from OOZOK.com the sketch are $4.15 and the CIAO are $2.85.You do have to register on the site to get that price though.. free shipping over $50 and they ship fast.. I am expecting another 10 markers today!!BigGrin

Have fun with them..btw- they are addicting..Blushing

Copics are so much fun, I could not begin to tell you how they would change the way you craft! BigGrin As for color choices, it really depends on what you would use them for. Some crafters prefer light colors, others like the darker shades. The Tilda stamps are quite popular. Here's a sample pic and the colors that I used for her. I have more samples in my blog.

Copic markers used:
Skin: E000, E00, E01, E02
Cheeks: R20
Lips: R22
Hair: E51, E53, E55, E57, E59
Dress: B00, B21, B24, B26
Sash/Headscarf/Petticoat: R00, R20, R22, R24, R27
Shoes/Bench: E31, E33, E35
Flowers: Y00, Y02, Y13, Y15, Y17
Leaves/Grass: G00, G02, G05, G07, G09
