Aww.. Erin, I feel your pain. If you give them the okay, why can't they leave them? How frustrating! I am waiting for more Copics too, but I am anxious for a different reason. I had a coupon so I ordered a 12 pack from one vendor. Then I found out about the sale at KraftyKrafts, so I ordered some more. Trouble is I forgot what colors were in the first order. Ack! I sure hope there aren't doubles. I feel so stupid!

That's strange. I've ordered a number of times (4 or 5) from them and have never had to have a signature to get them. They just leave the box on my front porch. Did you set it up that way?

This is my second order from carpediem, the last one contained 26 markers...and did NOT require a signature. My only guess is that it's determined by value. The order was a little over $200 for the one I was supposed to get today.

Thanks for the sympathies though

We've had this issue with UPS (not for Copic packages). Our UPS facility is relatively close, so we call customer service and tell them not to redeliver. We ask them to keep the package at the facility for us to pick up. That way we can pick it up at our convenience and not have to worry about missing the delivery again. I feel your pain. At least the markers have each other in the package.

This may not be very convenient, but you can go and pick them up at FedEx instead of waiting for them to redeliver (but you have to tell them that, so they don't put it on the truck the next morning). I'm surprised they wouldn't let you sign the release form and leave it on your door, I've done that before. Did you call 1-800-GOFEDEX? Maybe try speaking to someone else! Or, the local office instead?

I had worries about the same issue today. I was expecting a big Copic delivery today from DickBlick, coming FedEx. I work 2.5 hours a day at the elementary school and I was worried they would try to deliver it while I was gone and want a signature (it was a BIG order! Yeah!) but when I got home it was sitting on my porch. So now I am happily organizing and filling in my chart!

Hello,

I am VERY new to stamping!! I see Copic markers everywhere in sites. I went to their website, but there are many different types. What types do you suggest for stamping?? Sorry if the answer is posted somewhere else - Newbie.
Thanks for any help!!

That could be a reason, but usually if you sign some form that it's okay to leave the package, they'll go ahead and do that. Sorry, I hope you get your order tomorrow.

There are 3 different kinds - Original, Ciao, and Sketch. Sketch has the most colors and is oval so it doesn't roll off your table; Ciao are similar to Sketch, but not as many colors and doesn't hold as much ink and is round. The Original's have different nibs. The Sketch and I think the Ciao have the brush nibs. I have 99% Sketch and a few originals that a friend of mine got me at a discount before I knew anything about Copics.

You're right that the value determines whether or not a signature is required. Anything over $200 has to have a signature.

The free shipping from Carpe Diem is via FedEx Home Delivery®, which is different than regular FedEx. I believe it's operated by independent owner/operators. When I was waiting for a package from Carepe Diem, I called FedEx to see if I could pick it up from the depot; they said Home Delivery doesn't operate out of the same facility and they couldn't transfer it to a "regular" FedEx place.

They're a pain in the patootie... it took three extra days to get my Copics. Fortunately, they deliver on Saturdays, so that's how I was finally able to connect with them.

LOVE YOUR IMAGES.... Keep going and then I'll know what I need...

On the angel I was going to color her dress, etc a color and then make the wings, etc shine..do they in person with the clear spica?....I don't have that....

I tried a yellow shadow (I don't remember what color, it may have been Neopiko Pale Yellow, or YR00) to make her look like she was glowing, but I don't know if I like it...what do you think? Any suggestions for the white?
(btw I used BG10 on Changito and W2 on Belinda Bumbleboots for the shadowing, and C2 layered over BG10 on the angel wings)

Thanks you guys! practice practice practice LOL

The Spica seemed shiny when I first put it on, but the next day when I took the pictures I could not see it! Then, in different light, I could see it, but barely. So it is very subtle.
Yesterday I did another one and used an almost clear glitter glue (it is actually a fabric glue by Tulip!) and it was MUCH better...not overwhelming like Stickles or actual glitter would be, but more sparkly than the Spica. Spica is nice to use, but almost too subtle for my taste.
Unless someone else has some tips on using the Spica to make it show up more?!

Here's another one with the Spica, taken closer so you can see it a tad on the middle row of flowers (it's on the wings, necklace, etc too but you can't see it in this photo)...
And an angel with colored pants, just to see how it looks...I did the shadows on the wrong side I think so just ignore that!

Here's the one with the Tulip shimmer. The light was a little bluish but you can see the shimmer at least. I tried to shade more on this one (RV10 and RV13, RV17 on the trims), still need work on that! There is RV000 on the wings IRL.

Any tips on making something glow?! I tried doing the "rays" and I don't like it. I used a yellow "shadow" on her face near the candles and gray on the rest (I think it was C2 but I'm not positive)

I got a "how to" book on manga for some coloring tips and the glow they did is quite harsh. The thing is the rest of the background needs to be filled in darker to make the glow show up more and the parts the glow hits need to be lighter and of course there are the shadows cast by the glow etc. HTH

Personally for a card I would probably stick with the glow you did - if I were doing artwork I may do more of a manga style... I guess it could be a situation where an airbrush system would help to fade out the color... HMMM

By the way your coloring is really good but I think I already told you that!

Thanks, I don't mind hearing it again
Thanks for the tips, too...makes sense, maybe I'll look up a manga book. You also reminded me, I could have used chalk instead (although I haven't perfected THAT, either, at least it's softer looking). I get so caught up in the markers that I forget other options!

Hmm, I was kind of wondering the same thing. I wonder if the fluorescent Copics would work like that a little?
I know there's PAINT that is glow in the dark...

Barium Yellow! I used it for a light glow on this card:
http://blog.papermonkey.org/index/20...ly-trails.html

I think it shows up a bit in the close up photo (double click to enlarge then it shows a bit), but it is a very sheer light yellow. In person this looks like a lovely soft glow. The dang camera didnt pick it up well.

I fade that into darker yellows and then use a colorless blender pen, but for easy I just used barium here.

Beautiful card! I think that's actually what I used (at least, I tried it, may have gone over it with something else)...I just wasn't sure if I should do "rays" or a half circle or what...

Default Ink pads that do; ink pads that don't

Hi All,

I'm new to Splitcoaststampers and new to copic markers but not new to stamping. For you Copic Subject Matter experts I have two questions:

1. Ink Pads: Will you share a list of ink pads that don't bleed or blur and also those that lose their sharp image and don't work so well?

2. Cardstock: Are you using total a heavily absorbant paper, or something with a little bit of coating to it? Anyone ever try plastic coated cardstock?

I look forward to experimenting once my copics arrive in the mail, but would love to hear from ya'll in the meantime.

Thanks in advance!!

I look forward to experimenting once my copics arrive in the mail, but would love to hear from ya'll in the meantime.

Thanks in advance!!
Hi,

The inks that are most recommended are:

By far #1: Memento ink in Tuxedo Black
Closely followed by: Palette Noir ink, Ranger Distress ink in Black Soot.

The inks you should NOT use are: Staz-ON!!! Do not use ANY waterproof inks with alcohol-based markers like Copics.

I have heard the best cardstock to use is the Neenah Solar White. A lot of people like the white from Papertrey Inc as well, and some people recommend some of the Gina K. cardstock.

Good luck, HTH!

Have I read somewhere in the 100's of pages of copic threads that there is a chart you can color in as you purchase markers? Maybe I'm dreaming - if so - can I get ideas of how to keep up with what I buy? Strange, I know.....

I finally got my markers, I had to go pick them up at the Fedex facility. Booo.

WHAT is it with these things that the second you get a shipment in your house and charted and put away you instantly start planning out which ones you need next lol?

It all just depends on what you color.

If you do people then you need skin/hair tones
Animals then you need fur tones
Landscapes greens and blues etc.

My advice if you are going to start collecting one or two at a time is try to get three in near colors as light as you can - I would stay in the 01's, 10's, 20's, 30's and the lower numbers in those.

Also my most used colors are my greys and I have those (every other number) right up to a dark nearly black.

and I love my colorless blender.

www.ilikemarkers.blogspot.com has a wealthy of information too.

HTH

Just wanted to say Jenabeth, have fun with your Copics. I'm loving mine. One suggestion is that you change the font for your posts so the letters are a little larger. It's kind of hard for my old eyes to read your post.

I have a suggestion list on my blog...if you click January (I think...possibly February) look for Starting With Copics.

It's just a basic list of my most used colors that work well together...and god forbid I have to give up all but 25, those would be the ones.

Hi ladies. I'm going on vacation tomorrow for a week. I thought I'd take some images to play with and some of my Copic markers. I have about 120 of them, so I really can't take them all. Just wondered what you thought would be a good mix.
