According to the booklet I receive from COPIC 'Stamping With Copic'
these are the inks they recommend as being compatable with thier markers

-Brilliance
-Memento
-Versafine
-Ranger Adirondack
-Ranger Nick bantock
-Memories


Solvent inks like Staz-On are NOT compatable. When I stamp wish raks that say COPIC ink I always use Verafine or Brilliance.
My opinion - Brilliance and RANGER inks are the BEST for copics. I have the no bleeding with them.
Versafine I have a little bit if the ink is really wet over the image.

Just thought I would let you who are starting out with copics know that I added to my blog...a post on which copics to start with (Thanks to another SCSer who actually asked for my non-professional advice...LOL)...if any of you are interested as well:

Cher - I've just visited your blog - and yes, you've got a great list of starter colors! I believe I have all of those except for the Neutral Grays. I don't know why I've avoided them. I'm sort of addicted to the Warm Grays and I have 3 of the Toner Grays. Do I really need the Neutrals?

I love coming to this thread - learning a lot!

I just found this thread and it must be fate! I was just in my craft room struggling over a card I'm making for my group meeting. I was trying to faintly airbrush the background of the main image and I'm failing horribly! I checked it out on the "I Like Markers" blog and she makes it look so easy! Mine is either coming out too dark or (most of the time) not getting any color at all. I thought my can or air was empty (it still shakes) so I tried a new one. Same thing? Am I air-brush challenged? Not meant to brush? Not fated to gracefully blend? Is there anyone else out there who's having this problem or am I the only one in the universe who can't seem to use the COPIC brushing system? Help?

On another note, I just polished off the Dick Blick gift certificate I received from my son for Christmas... and didn't know about the coupons. I did, however, get free shipping. I've also ordered from Carpe Diem and have had good customer service from both. I will, however, be looking at oozak for the next order... it's an addiction... not my fault... illness, you know. (My husband isn't buying it, either.)

Thanks for all the help, suggestions and ideas.

I am glad to see that someone agrees on the colors I listed! And no...I don't think you need the Neutrals...those are just my choice for blacks and grays, however I have only one Toner gray which was an accident...so maybe they are somewhat interchageable?

THanks for this. Would love to see the booklet! So what did it suggest for paper? I know Papertrey is good, but went with Gina K. I just was playing around some more with my Making Memories smooth white cardstock and SU black ink and got bleeding EVERYWHERE... I've got Memento ink on the way....

FOR all you Copice NEWBIES like me... there are some really good tutorials on you tube where you can really see what's happening.I just watched this one and it helped me a lot. Need to finish Marianne's blog and watch a few more of these. But it was sooo helpful to actually see this stuff (Marianne any chance you could do a few?? Altho just went over your blending tutorial - to fade to white and *think* I kind of get it now!)..

Here's link to You Tube I just watched:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bd1yWPDMsY&NR=1

She shows a bit about outlining, shading etc.. and uses a fun MFT stamp while doing so (as well as some cute sheep stamps). I was surprised how quickly she went over colors and her stamp ink which really tells me I'm using a horrible combo!

On the Copic website, http://www.copicmarker.com/ , go to the library section and download the stamping with Copics booklet.

Ok, I have read lots of stuff on here and have quite a few copics.. For people that are ordering and are fairly new, try this.. get the a low and high #s in the same color family... for example, for skin tones a great combo I use for skin sometimes is E00 and E13, then I may add shadows of E39 under chin if I want to be fancy, but I don't blend on the paper. I use an acrylic block as a pallette. I make a small dab of the darker color on my pallette and use the lighter color and pick up just some of it on my brush tip. I color in small circles and pick up ink until I have what I like... It's not exactly a science... Check out my blog for actual portraits I have done using these.. www.createwithnikki.blogspot.com

It's nice to know that versafine works because I have that too, but it is not an acceptable ink for copics for wish-rak. They allow Adirondack Pitch Black, Brilliance Graphite Black ((heat set)) and Memento Tuxedo Black only. That's why I went ahead and bought the Momento.

This thread has been so informative to me. I love all the info and tips from everyone! Keep 'em coming!

Read your blog. Great info. Is glossy accents like crystal effects. I love the house you did. It's fabulous! I like the colors you chose. I actually have a few of them in my measly assortment.

OK, I just got back to this thread after a long weekend of coloring for Our Craft Lounge. Someone asked about coloring the elephant, Pea-Nut (I have always had a soft-spot for elephants and we won't even go into my elephant shaped baby blanket that was loved to death).

I start with a C1, add deeper shadows of a C3 to C5, and even tone in some BV31 or BV20 to add the purplish cast that compliments the pink ears/feet. However, the elephant looks great colored in ANY of the gray tones. Real elephants are more of a W,or T (toner is half-way between warm and Neutral). If I were coloring him in warmer tones then I would deepen the shadows with probably an E40 or E31 or something else pale brown to add a hint of brown. To fade it out to the white of the paper I colored back with the blender in the opposite direction to fade/push the grays back into the shadows and wrinkles. This makes it look even more naturally wrinkled. add the pale pink last over the grays.

HTH!

OK, you need to read over this troubleshooting post I made on airbrushing. It sounds like your marker nib is the culprit this time.

I need to sleep sometime, so no I probably won't do any video tutorials. If any of you have bought the Sketch DVD that's my hands doing most of it. It's really beginner though, and better dvds are on their way in 2009...

Only the CLEAR EP will work.

VersaFine comes in several colors, but their black one is called Onyx Black. Most people seem to stamp in black, that's why I mention the name.

Hope this helps!
I heat set my versifine and it seems to do OK.

I ask the person before stamping. If they say yes then I grant them. I also have Brilliance and some do chose the Versfine over any others.

That's great. I have images that I've received in wishrak that I just asked for "black" and some of them are working for the copics, so that must be why. Nice to know!

This thread has helped me a ton. Thanks. I'm a newbie at much including embossing. So today I picked up some of the black onyx versafine and got home, read back of package, and it didnt say anything about embossing/but that it was super quick drying. So I immediately thought I'd once again bought the wrong thing (my clear versamark pad is "versamark" .. so again thought I'd messed up). SOOO I can emboss with the versafine black onyx pad and clear EP? Sorry siuch basic Q's.. thanks!

Yes, the Ciao has at least three styles of nibs that you can use.

Actually, Anaheim is about 4 hours away and I would love to go down, but that is the weekend we are having a family reunion in the Pismo Beach area. If something changes for some reason, I'll definately look into it. Otherwise, maybe another time. Are the certification classes basically teaching you how to use copics?

I know I'm not Susan, but I will assist to the certification class on the 23rd. That was the more convenient place and date for me, since I live in anaheim...

Here is a link to Marianne's blog and her post about the certification classes. There is an outline of the day after the location information. http://ilikemarkers.blogspot.com/200...2008-2009.html

I'll be at the Anaheim class and am so excited! I attended a make and take with Marianne and Joy from Our Craft Lounge. Both ladies are so nice. I'll be bringing a few Our Craft Lounge images to practice on at the class as well as a few others. I would have loved to meet you there, but there is a class in Chino (still about 4 hours away from you) in April too.

I'll be at the Anaheim class and am so excited! I attended a make and take with Marianne and Joy from Our Craft Lounge. Both ladies are so nice. I'll be bringing a few Our Craft Lounge images to practice on at the class as well as a few others. I would have loved to meet you there, but there is a class in Chino (still about 4 hours away from you) in April too.

Chino is where my husband's job headquarters are. He's in banking and has to travel to Chino periodically. I will see if he happens to be going down there in April. Thanks for the info.

Does anyone have recommendations for hair colors? What do you use? I'd like to be able to have at least one highlight color in the hair.

I hope I'm not asking a question that's already been asked 100 times (I swear I browsed though this thread but it's SO l-o-n-g!!!) - for those of you that have and use your Copics often, which style do you prefer? My Mom bought me my first set for Christmas, a really basic color set, and they're the square ones (what do you call these one anyway? Original Copic? Standard?) but I was at a stamp store here in Sacramento, CA today and bought a few more and they ended up being the "Copic Sketch". Is one better than the other?

What about the Ciaos?

Does anyone think it's a big deal if I have some of one style and some of the other??? (I'm a little OCD about my stamping stuff so I'd like them to all be the same but don't have the money to "fix" my mismatch problem... )
And what about this whole idea of changing the "nibs" - If I like the brush nib better than the "small pointed nib" that comes on the square Copics can I change those out?

I'm still working on building my collection so I would love any advise anyone wants to offer... Anybody have a favorite color/color combo that they can't live without???

Thanks everyone and kuddos again to the mastermind who decided to start this thread!

Wow, nobody's ever called me a mastermind before. LOL! I just saw a "need" to chat about my newest obsession. So glad to have everyone chit chat about Copics.

The only Copics I have ever used are the Sketch. I love the oval shaped barrel and I especially love the brush tip . I feel like I have more control of the marker. I'm a bit OCD myself but if I found some Ciaos for a great price I'd get them and mix them into my stash. I'm not sure about the Originals (the set you have) but I know the Sketch holds more ink than the Ciaos.
