Rosie, I use RV63 and RV66 with RV69. Here's a card in my gallery using those colors.

How should these be stored??????????????? Right now I have them in an art bin container, so they are being stored vertically. But someone said they should be stored horizontally. So????????????????????

Copics don't care how you store them. It's up to what's good for you - vertical or horizontal. They are not going to dry out.

Cathy - you can store Copic *markers* anyway that works for you...vertical or horizontal. The only Copic product with recommended horizontal storage is the Spica Glitter pen because of the glass flakes that are suspended in the ink reservoir - you want those flakes to stay evenly distributed inside the pen.

And it doesn't matter if you have Copic Original, Caio, or Sketch - they can all be stored either vertically or horizontally.

I have a question for anyone who can answer this. Is it possible to overblend when you color? I colored a coneflower image on cryogen white and then colored the smaller coneflowers on GK pure lux. The card looked great. You could see the graduated colors w/o any obvious lines. But the reason I ask this is that when I look at other people's images you can clearly see the darker shades. I'm sorry I can't show a photo of the card. I'm just wondering if I'm overdoing it. I hope this doesn't come off as critical of others, that is not my intent. I'm just thinking I may not be coloring correctly!

What can happen is that when you go over your dark shade with the lightest is you can overblend to the point of lightening up your dark shade too much. But then you can always go over your shadow areas again.

I use cryogen, too, and to get good color coverage (shadows and proper blending) I also find I need to add more layers of color to get the saturation I want. But I should also tell you that I don't particularly like GinaK paper for coloring larger areas because I find that paper (by comparison to cryogen) can't be worked as much, especially if you color with a more heavy hand (which I have). Cryogen, it seems to me, can't be overworked.

Yeah, I think maybe I did overblend. I still liked the looks of it, it just didn't seem as striking as it probably could have. I understand what you mean about the GK cs.
I had to work a little harder to blend it. It was my base with the small flowers stamped directly on it with the large flower cut out and popped up. I will say that I love that cryogen paper. Blends well with no bleeding. Thanks for answering my question. I thought it could be over-blended. I don't have any real life people to ask these things so thank you. I hope to get a new camera for Christmas so I'll be able to post a picture when needed. That would really be helpful! LOL!

You're welcome, Juble. You know, the only thing that matters is that you like the end result.

It is easy to overblend images. Hold the card out at arm's length and squint at it. IF you seem to lose the definition, then darken the dark areas again.

People's eys are drawn to high contrast, so try coloring two of the same image, one really blended, and the other with darker shading and hold them both out and see what catches your eye more. HTH!

I have been following all of the Copic posts for years and finally put together a "fill-in-the-blank" chart of of the recommended colors for Papertrey and Stampin' Up cardstock. It's downloadable on my blog. Just print it on the paper that you typically stamp on and fill in the blanks with colors that you own. Hope it helps!!

Wow thanks! When I sold off a bunch of copics I mainly kept colors that were matches for SU colors. This will be awesome!!

Yep that was him. He was a strange bird. He was played by the same guy who used to play Robinette on the old Law & Order shows. And I guess my spelling was wrong-you are right. It's spelled Jubal. Sounds the same though.

Since the alcohol based ink dries so quickly, do you need to reactivate the ink right before you stamp the image? How?

You can spritz it with rubbing alcohol. This Gina K tutorial explains it: A Day in the Life: Copic Markers...a new way!

Default Alcohol to refresh Copic ink on stamps

Does anyone know which per cent alcohol you should use? Both 70 and 91 per cent are available. Wondering if the 91 is too strong for the rubber.

Hi ladies, I'm new to Copics and just bought my first 36 colors. Choosing those colors was one of the hardest decisions I've made in a while! I noticed most artists use the C greys and that's what I was planning to do but when I got home after my purchase I noticed I had bought N1,N3,N5, and C 9. I'm wondering if I should go back and get the C1,C3,C5 and maybe a lighter C7? Should I also get a N7,N9? Does anyone use the N series? I noticed at my LSS that sells Copics they don't even carry the N's. I was told C's for dead things, and W's for living things. T's to tone down colors. Where does that leave the N's? I just wonder if I'll get much use out of the N's I now own.

N grays are truly neutral, not warm or cool. So they are very versatile. Actually, the N0 or N1 is one of our top 20 bestselling colors. You can layer those over any of the other colors you purchased to tone down the colors, or you can use them as a good, general gray color. Enjoy your markers!

I'm one of the rare ones that have all the greys and like using them!!! I think they have their particular place, cools for metals and good for hair. I like the warms for animals, but have used cools there as well (I'm still learning)..... I think you're getting my drift. And, don't even get me started on shadows and shading, check out Marianne's blog and book for all of that good info. I'm so glad I made the investment, and I got them during a sale, so how could I resist!

Bev Rochester uses E50 and E25 with E29 for hair. Here are some examples of what that combo looks like: All the things I love

Since we are on the topic of all-things-Copic...Can we talk about the Copic Spica Glitter Pens? Who has them? How do you generally use them (ex: to add sparkle over Copic markers, or to accent areas without marker, etc??)? What colors do you use most? I've seen a few good deals on the 12 pks, but I'm not sure how often I'd use ALL of them...

Can anyone show me examples of projects you've done with them?

TIA!!

I just bought a set of these and am new to copic's. I used the Spica Glitter pens to add a touch of sparkle to the sneakers and little heart on the t-shirt of one of my Mo Manning images. I used it over the copic colors and really liked the way it looked.

I use the glitter pens all the time, mostly as an accent over colored areas. Trouble is, they are so subtle they don't photograph very well. It is not an overpowering glitter, nor is it a shimmer. It is a bunch of tiny glass flakes, so it just catches the light and is really pretty but not obnoxious.

Does it make a difference if the Copic pens are stored standing or laying down? I see them stored both ways at different web sites, and would it be the same for the Spica Glitter pens?

The markers can be stored either way, but to prolong the life of the glitter, glitter pens should be kept horizontal and not dropped or shaken, or all the glass flakes will get knocked around and not flow consistently throught the life of the pen.

Hi,
I hope someone can help me with my copics problem.
I've only had them a couple of weeks and I love them but definitely still learning.
I've watched lots of tutorials and am using cardstock which has been recommended on lots of blogs, BUT...
I am getting very shiny areas on my colouring. Sometimes it's really noticeable, but usually you can only see it when you "tilt" the paper to the light.
It mainly happens when I'm "trying" to do hair and where I kind of outline something.
Is it that I've got too much ink on there?
I have watched hair colouring tutorials where they kind of go over and over it to get a good blend of colours but mine just seems to go shiny and "wet" looking in spots.
Could someone please suggest what I might be doing wrong.
Thanks
