I took a class by a certified instructor. Try picking three that vary only by the last number.... like G21, G24, G28. Then another color in the 2's like B26. (or pick another "first number" to work within.) Then pick another couple in another number entirely R81, R85. Bring your colorless blender if you have one. oh, and my class wasn't long enough but you may get into shading so bring a warm and cool gray if you have those too. At a count of 200 you must! (I'm at approx 120 and I do!) We also played a bit with the spicas...

And then make sure you have an assortment of tips. Brush, chisel and round all have different effects and techniques so it will be fun to try them if they get into it!

And then since you are so well prepared Mark your Markers so that yours all come home with you! I think the pens will write on themselves.....and then come clean with colorless blender or hand sanitizer if you don't want it to be permanent. or just use a sticker on your pens for the class.

Question

But I thought the copics classes were only for teachers (I am assuming stamping or art teachers only), demonsrtratores and store owners.

Does any place offer copics classes for the average stamper?

Mine are all with the chisel on one end and the brush on the other.

As I understand when class is open it's open for store owners, designers, design team members, teachers, instructors
after certain time if there are spots left they will open it to demos.

The 'actual' copic classes are intended for store owners and to certify them to teach their own classes! So i took one from a "certified instructor"...not someone who actually works for copic....

Is there someplace local that keeps copic in stock? They may have classes offered.

Thanks for the info. I am not a demo so I still have no class available to me, I guess. No way would my local Michaels or A.C. Moore offer a class on copics! LOL! They don't even SELL them and probably never heard of them, either.

I just keep looking for ino here and on youtube. I'm doing the best I can but it would be nice if someone who really knows what they are doing was availbale to look at what I do and that way I can see if I'm on the right track. That's why I was looking for a class.

Sketch and ciao do have the same tips. One end is chisel and the other is actually the "super brush". It will bend and give a bit as if it was made up of bristles. (OT- I seem to be using a lot of quotes tonight)

A round end is something more like a fine tip. But some come much thicker than fine...hence the round. This is a solid tip like the chisel, but looks circular from the end.

There is a great graphic that shows all the nibs for all the pens on one page.

http://www.copicmarker.com/library.html
On the upper left of the screen is the 2008/2009 catalog for copic. Go to page 12

Take note that the super brush is not available for copic/original. There is a brush replacement but it is not as large and certainly not as flexible. You can remove your nibs and replace them with fresh ones as long as they are compatible with your marker according to the chart and I'm not sure if some of them only fit onto one end? Confirm before you buy. (But if you are ever going to use the airbrush system, that is a good reason to hold onto your chisel tips if you replace them!)

I'm sure this has been hammered around through this thread, but have you looked at Marianne's blog? Honestly, after reading her earlier posts....I could hear her voice echoing through my local class. (She certified under her.)

You can self teach, I promise! Also check out http://www.copicmarker.com/library.html on the upper right there is a stampers guide to copics. Most of the tips in the class are listed right there!

Thanks for the tips. This class is too is being taught by a "certified instructor". It sounds like it might be similiar to the one you took. What exactly were some of the things they covered?

Unfortunately the one in my area on March 1st that is being taught by Marianne herself is full. I tried to get into that one, but like you said it is for store owners, instructors, etc. and there was no room left for the "average Joe".

I'm sure I'll agree with you when it's done that it was too short. But I'm hoping if I come away with one or two things I'll be happy. I'm actually taking a personal day from work so I can attend. But even a "bad" day stamping beats a "good" day at work anytime.

As previously mentioned if you have a LSS check and see if they offer a copic class. I also keep meaning to call the Blick store by me and see if they offer a class as well. Does anyone know if Blick offers Copic classes?

I am feeling torn. I am really trying to save money, etc. So as I look at my crafting things in general and my Copics, I see duplicates. They may be subtle but they are nearly the same.
Do I really need B06 and B16? G05 and G14? They are so close.
I may have to go through and sell a few, I just don't know.

I have many that are very close in color, but I figure down the road when pens start to need re-inking I will be able to reduce the need for buying the refill containers, which cost about as much as the pens. Weak justification, perhaps, but it works for me!

I like your reasoning! I would imagine there is more ink in a reinker for the same price but what the heck, now we have slightly different colors! lol

OK, now I'm really inspired to get going. I've got a collection of Copics now and I've dabbled a bit, but I think I'm ready! Thanks for this darling card and the momentum to make a whole card! LOL!

Another question: Are the same colors available for the ciaos as with the sketch markers? Or is there a separate line of colors for each style?

I wouldn't be able to tell that it's your first Copic card. It really is so cute! Great job with the coloring.

The Sketch markers definitely have more colors than the Ciao markers. Here are the charts from the Carpe Diem Store. The Sketch markers are two pages long.

thanks guys for the nice comments. you make me wanna keep colorin!

also, i did trade off my ciao's but thank you for all the interest.

lastly, diana...i was thrilled to know that the color codes are the same for ciao and sketch. ciao has the same colors that sketch does. but sketch just has a lot more that are NOT in ciao. at least i THINK that is the deal and i hope that helps.

Question: has anyone had their copics drop a blob of ink on the image while coloring? About midway thru coloring my lilacs my RV19 just let loose with a big drop of ink. It didn't hurt anything but I was surprised as this is the first time that happened.

Yes, I had that happen. I forget which one it was but it surprised the heck out of me! I just saw $$$ signs as it happened! lol It was just that once last week, and only 1 markers so far. I let it rest and it didn't happen again so that was good.

Yes, and it's a common problem. My first set of Copics were delivered directly from Japan. After being on the plane, there was the problem of "air pressure." So, Marianne recommended that I take off the caps (on both ends of the marker) and leave them off for a few minutes to make sure that the air pressure stabilizes. I took off all 144 caps and left them off for 20 minutes. I haven't had the problem since. HTH

i have N2 for shadows

now i need a couple for blending together for metal objects...like espresso tins and buckets and whatnot. any suggestions?

The best way to think about them is what you will be highlighting and shadowing....cools are for things that may look metallic....warm for more organic things like wood and flowers.

Just a broad look at things...

I am so sorry guys if this has been asked, but I can't read through eleven pages of thread....Does anyone use a copic blender pen, where do I get it? I only have thirteen copics, but have joined a copic club from Sweet N Sassy Stamps. I want a blender pen, but I have looked everywhere and cannot find one.
The other question, does anyone have a sheet of what copics match the SU colors? thanks *~*
