Default GinaK 120 lb paper sticky and splotchy

Like most of you, I have a ton of cardstock. I spent at least 2 weeks of spare moments, researching the best copic paper to use. It seemed like such a waste to buy more paper when I have so much. I decided on the GinaK 120 lb Pure Luxury. Ugh.... I keep getting a sticky, splotchy mess, which I have learned is apparently because of the coating ??? Has anyone else encountered this? I just want to make sure it's not user error. Any insights will be greatly appreciated. I really would rather buy more markers than more paper LOL. Thanks so much Lisa

I like the GinaK paper very much. I've only used the 80 lb, but I would assume they have the same coating (if, in fact, they have a coating at all!). I've had no problems coloring on that paper with Copics. No sticky, splotchy messes at all.

I do like the new X-Press-It cardstock, too. I'm not a fan of the Neenah Solar White because the Copic inks bleed on it, especially the reds.

The Gina K is so smooth and dense, and has such small paper-fibers that sometimes many layers of dark marker colors on that paper will turn splotchy because the paper simply can't absorb the dye.

Try to blend less, especially with dark colors, or, if it seems like it's getting sticky, use the blender pen and carefully remove layers of color. I hope this helps!

I don't care for the Gina K card-stock. My #1 fave is Beckett Expression super-smooth 80# cover, then Paper Trey Ink select white (but it's heavy to cut if you like to cut images out be aware of that), Neenah Classic Crest but it has to be the super -smooth, then, Strathmore Bristol smooth that comes in a pad and then Canson Manga card that comes in a pad. I don't like the X-press it that everyone likes. oh, I just got another pad to try, Bee paper pad - it's really thin and really slick and was more like the X-press it paper. Good luck... I like to try everything as you can tell! lol

the super smooth Neenah Classic Crest doesn't bleed but the regular Neenah Classic Crest does... not sure everyone realizes there are two kinds.

Hi there,

perhaps the question has been asked before. But unfortunately I do not have the time to read all the threads

Normally i use Memento Ink with Copics and it works perfect.

But some swap friends prefer Stazon or Versafine. I know that Stazon doen´t work with Copics, but how about Versafine ? Does anyone have experience with it?

I love Versafine for regular stamping (always use it for sentiments and watercoloring) but it will make a mess of the tips of your markers and smear really ugly!

I need to order some copics but need them by next Saturday. What company has fast delivery with having to pay for express? Oozak does not have the colors I need in stock.

Merriartist.com usually has a great supply of copic pens and refills. The ship fast. I made a mistake with my order at 9 pm; the next morning at 10 am when I called they had to open the package to fix it. There customer service is great!

Wilma, CarpDiem is having a sale on Copics...$3.95 ea, and if you spend $50, it's free ship. I haven't ordered from them before, so I don't know how quickly they ship, but it's worth a try, since they are on sale. Maybe someone else on here has some experience with them, and can give you an idea of ship time.

Have you tried Scrap Mart? They have sale prices, but they are not as cheap as CarpDiem's clearance price. However, all copics ship free so you don't have to order $50 to get free shipping.
I know they ship very quickly.
If fact if you call the order in and explain your situation, I'll bet they will try to mail them the same day

Has anyone had any luck finding the 36 pc Copic Ciao Set E for less than $115? I've been waiting for JoAnn's to get it in so I could use a 50% off coupon, but no luck. Any idea when they might get it? TIA! Heidi

Default Color Swatch book question

I've been searching on this forum for info on a "color swatch book". I know Marianne from I Like Markers has one and suggests making one, if you have one, what size do you find most useful with regards to portability, small, yet large enough to be useable with the information referenced on the page.

What are you using for a swatch book? Marianne suggests
" I got an inexpensive little portfolio book and I keep plain stamped images on my personal favorite paper, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White"

Thanks for any suggestions

You can actually buy a portable swatch book. I found one at Wiggles & Giggles in Wetherfield, CT, when we were traveling to a gathering so you may find it at your local Copics store or online. Shop around for prices. Here's what it looks like:

I made my own swatchbook/ copic journal out of my favorite cardstock (at the time- Papertrey Ink Stampers Select White) cut down to 4.25X 5.5 and punched holes in each page and bound on* binder rings. I have some posts from it here: Copic Journal downloads for the pages are available here: Rachel's Copic Journal Pages

This is what I've been using, but mine doesn't have the new colors in it. I think the Copics.com website may have the sheet that you can print off with all the new colors on it. I can't really remember where I printed that off from.

I have ordered from Carpe Diem several times and the order arrives in two to three days but, I live in the west. I think the sale is over because sketch markers are now showing a price of $ 4.87 per sketch marker. Darn! I wish I would have put my order in this last weekend when I was looking at them.

I have ordered from Carpe Diem a number of times and have always had a good experience with them. I think there are times that maybe a website runs into a problem with the supplier that might cause some difficulty with them or some other issue with their business, but they are still a good source. I've also ordered from Oozak but find that they are usually out of stock of items that I've wanted. I think you just maybe have to shop around for the place that best suits you.

I have a color question that I know someone could answer for me. Don't you like those kinds of questions? LOL. Anyway here goes. I have R20. R22, R32 and R81 and then have RV11, 13 and 93. But haven't been able to get a soft pink or even true color box pink. What do I need to add to be able to come up with a true soft pink? I know copics are going up in price in the early fall and would like to order before that happens. Thanks for any suggestions for purchasing additional copics and/or blending combinations to get a pink.

I guess "Pink" is all in the eye of the beholder, lol. I have RV11, Pink, and have used one up and bought another because it is my go-to pink color. Hope you find the exact shade you like, too.

I agree pink is in the eye of the beholder. I love pink too !
For a soft dusty pink I use R81 & R83
For a baby type pink I use RV00 & RV02 Sometimes I also use RV10 which is a tad lighter than RV02 but darker than RV00
I know the "V" colors are supposed to have a violet cast but this pink does not

I'm with Barbara Jay.......a pink is in the eye of the beholder. With that said I also use the same pinks as she does.
When I want a dusty pink I go with R81 & R83.
For a soft pink I like RV00 & RV10.
I don't use any of the lighter R's since I find them more on the light coral side than a true pink to me, but then there is that pink to one person may not be a pink to another.....
Best of luck in your "pink hunt"

I wish I could say I found the perfect soft pink but I haven't, for soft pink I use RV000. Looking forward to reading what others use.

Some of the numbers for the colors don't seem to follow the sequence of shades that I expect.
RV10 as a middle shade between RV00 and RV02 is not how it is supposed to work.
But with my old eyes it seems to work LOL

And RV 11 works with R81 & R83
These 3 all have a slightly dusty shade to me

I purchased a dozen or so Promarkers and Trias in pinks. I don't really like copics pinks, I suppose because it's hard to match the pattern papers out there. But with Promarkers and Trias, you don't have the series of colors in the family like copics, but they could be used together for sure. I haven't used them much yet though.

I do like RV21, 23 and 25 but I totally agree Pam.. I can hardly ever get them to match my papers. Let me know how the Promarkers work with your copics. I guess if you were coloring one area like a shirt or something in all promarkers that wouldn't really be an issue. I just might have to give this a try!!

oops, almost forgot to add this. Here's a link at DeviantArt (you may have to create an account to view it, but they don't spam you with emails and it's free). It's a copic chart with true colors and it has most of my fav's in each color family
