In the first part I keep lists of color combinations that work well together. I really like Suzanne Dean's list. I used her's and left room for my own that I have discovered. I have taken her Copic classes and found them very useful. Highly recommend her if you are interested in coloring.

In the second part I have the color families listed. I printed them out on Copic Xpress paper. Now when I buy a marker I mark in right away in my case. Pretty simple!

I just print a copic marker color chart but I print two to a page. You can still read it and once folded, it fits nicely in my purse.

I bought the Copic color swatch book and if I had known it was $7.00 I would not have bought it but now that I have it I love it. Now I think the the $7.00 was well worth the time I would have taken to create my own.

I have a dumb question... Carpe Diem has Copic Ciao for 2.95 each. Do you think Oozak will price match???

They are really nice.

Thank you for your help!!

As I'm sure you've seen, oozak.com gets lots of happy customers. If you register with oozak (free), you'll see their lowest prices, which are lower than Marker Pop. Free shipping in the US with a $50 order. Best service around, can't be beat.

I have been ordering from Oozak for nearly 3 years. I bought all of my Copics, Distress ink pads and reinkers, memento ink pads and reinkers , Ez-mount and other things from him. Not only are his prices the best, but the customer service and shipping speed is outstanding. If you order by 3:30 EST it will ship the same day.

In all the years I have ordered from him I only had one "tiny" mistake. I ordered a dew drop memento ink pad and got the inker by mistake. I called him and he apologized and said he would ship the ink pad out right away . Within 10 minutes I got a shipping notice with a tracking number!!
You can't beat that .

One more question... Should Copics be stored laying down or standing up in a jar. I have my older ones in a jar. I just don't want all of them to dry out on one end and explode on the other. Does that make sense???

It absolutely doesn't matter. You will not hurt them either way.

It's me again. I have been reading this thread for an hour or more. So much info to take in.

So I am going to ask yet another question. What a pain in the behind I am... lol...

What paper is the best to use for Copics?

About a year ago I went to a lss and bought some paper. It was pretty costly and the drive was over a hour. I have heard some papers bleed through and others don't. So any help will be much appreciated..

Thanks in advance, again!

You'll get lots of opinions on the paper, too. And you're not a pain in the behind. We who love our Copics also love talking about them and anything related!

Copic themselves recommends X-Press-It blending card. I like it fine. You can get it at a good price through Oozak.com (lots of satisfied cusotmers around SCS). Other choices: Neenah Classic Crest Colar White, which I like OK, except that I've had trouble with certain colors, especially reds, bleeding over the outline. I also like Gina K pure luxury white. That one comes in 2 weights. Most of the papers/cardstocks you'll use will bleed through to the back of the sheet, so you'll need to layer. The one exception I've found is that the Gina K heavyweight cardstock is thick enough so that it doesn't bleed through.

I know others have tried some other papers, and I'm sure they'll chime in.

I'm so new to the Copic craze and need lots of pointers. I did order some Copic brand paper but goodness it was sooooo thin. Just wouldn't work for cards in my opinion. I have been using Tombow markers but found that the Neenah paper pilled or rubbed around. Not good. So is there a difference between what Tombows or alcohol markers do to paper? Wish I could use the Distress Markers and the Tombows or the Copics on all the same paper. Is this a pipe dream? Would love to hear some input as I don't have time to scroll through the bazillion other comments....well unless I am under distress!!! LOL.

Clarification: Copic does have some Copic-brand papers, but as far as I know, they are *paper,* not cardstock. AFAIK, there is no such thing as Copic cardstock. As noted in my previous post, Copic recommends X-Press-It Blending Card.

If I'm not mistaken, Tombow markers are water-based. Copics are alcohol based. All the difference in the world! And yes, there's a huge difference in how they behave.

Can you get to a local store that sells Copics? For example, in this area there is an art supply store that sells them (not a craft/hobby store, although some craft/hobby stores do sell them, too.) You have some Tombow markers. Take them with you and experiment comparing the two. Maybe take some different kinds of cardstock with you.

HTH,

You probably purchased the Copic Stamping Illustration paper which is very thin and not good for card bases, but okay for layering.

Copic recommends and distributes X-Press It Blending Card which is a nice card weight paper and works beautifully with Copics.

Water based markers (like Tombow) will pill up the paper and eventually tear through it when the paper becomes saturated, alcohol based markers (Copics) won't tear up or pill up the paper at all...no matter how much ink you use. One of the many differences.

So, Tombows are a different cat, in that they need watercolor paper? I am familiar with alcohol inks and love them, though they work best on glossy cardstock or transparency film. But, Copics will they work on the glossy paper? Or do they work best on high quality paper such as Gina K? Thanks to all of you for directing me a bit here. It took me forever to get all the different types of ink down now its markers! Shish. Such a problem to have....I am very grateful though for all that I am privileged to have! Thanks gals.

I would not use Tombows, or any markers, on watercolor paper. The paper is super-absobent and will suck the ink right out of the marker. (This includes Copics.) On watercolor paper, my coloring medium of choice is Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wonder Crayons and an AquaPainter.

Here's some useful information about Copics and watercolor paper, straight from the source:
I Like Markers: Copics & Watercolors, Part 2

Copics work best on cardstock like X-Press-It Blending Card or Gina K. Pure Luxury. I haven't tried them on glossy cardstock, but I don't think that would show them to their best advantage.

Checked out the site you linked me to and found it very interesting in that I don't think I will "waste" my Copics on watercolor paper. I think while I learn anyway, I will use watercolor crayons on water color paper and Copics on the GK. The Tombows don't blend well just bright colors as is. Do you know if there is a blending solution for them?

I like SU Shimery White or Crogen White (paper temptress) as my paper of choice for Copics.

As for blending solution for water-based markers, you can use a blender pen (not the Copic blender pen) or water but you never get the true blending capabilities you can with an alcohol marker. That is why we all love Copics because you blend directly on paper.

Blending with water-based markers is simply "water coloring" and it follows the guidelines like all water coloring mediums.

Copics on glossy will give you a different result. Depending on the quality of the coating on the glossy paper, you may or may not be able to blend. Good glossy paper will give you streaks and the inks actually "stain" the fibers... making blending and using the colorless blender for special effects useless. It is fun to use Copics on glossy with black and white photos though... just a different look.

I just jumped into the Copic waters (As of yesterday!) and I'm happy with what I have purchased so far.

However, I'm wondering what blends well with the YG17 (Grass Green); I can't really imagine it going with Chartreuse (YG13) since that is rather light. What would be a good shade to go with Grass Green (I'm thinking of plants to color.).

I just played around with the colors I have and YG61 for a lighter shade and YG67 for a darker shade seem to go well.

Wow, the last post was over a year ago sniff sniff

I'm just getting into Copics!

I have found lots of tutorials and I have a book. I'd LOVE to find a blank chart that has larger spaces for the colors and numbers that I can actually read without a magnifying glass. I've searched and searched to find one that is current (2013). I think to be large enough it would have to be 2 or more pages.
Does anyone know of a chart like this?

Default Copic Chart

Hi Carole

I was having the same problem so I created my own chart in a spreadsheet. The only trouble with my spreadsheet is that you have to adjust it every time you buy new markets.

I've had my markers for more than 5 years now and am happy with the colors I've chosen, so my chart has been unaltered for a couple of years now.

This may not work for you but if you can't find anything better, feel free to adapt this to suit your needs.

Hi Carole,
Jenabeth's chart is a great option, and you might take a look at the Copic Color Swatch Book. It sells for $5.07 at Oozak or $5.49 at ICopic.com, the spaces are large, grouped by color families, and you can add colors to the page, if new ones come out. The other nice thing about it is while you are building up your collection, it's portable to put in your purse when you go shopping. Very easy to use, I have both the large chart to refer to as well as the swatch book.

Good luck and enjoy Copics, they're great!!!

Have you checked with a local craft store? We have one nearby that sells copics and they offer color charts that work well for me.

Default My advise

The best solution to your problem (I think) is for you to purchase the Copics chart booklet that the previous thread referred to. he one you can purchase from Oozark for $5 and some change. I love mine and you won't have difficultly reading the numbers of each marker. The great thing is being able to take it to the store and use it so you won't duplicate purchases.

The book is great when working in your craft room, but sometimes when shopping I have forgotten to take it with. If you have an iPhone .Too has an app (free) that you can put all of your markers in so when shopping you know what you have. I find both of these very helpful. I also use the Neenah Solar white and Memento inks when using my Copic Markers.
