I have some water based markers (some SU and some Distress) and I find they streak. I have tried painting with my Distress Inks, but unless I use watercolor paper it doesn't work well, and I sometimes have a hard time getting a good outline stamp on WC paper.

It's a conundrum. And it annoys me. I need to have a reliable coloring method and I can't seem to find one.
Really?! I love coloring with Copics, however you need about 3 shades for each color to blend. For Prismacolor I use regular mineral spirits and it works fine. I understand what you mean about water-based markers. They really tear your paper the more you try to blend. May I ask how many Copics you own? I know they are quite expensive, so I don't own to many. Also, have you tried Spectrum Noir or Prismacolor markers. I hear they are about the same, except for more blending. Hope you can find something! Coloring is what I do the most.


God Bless!
