You are a craft artiste !! I bow down before you....no matter how hard I try to shade, it comes out all flat. Maybe I will put it under my pillow and osmosis will get it to my teeny tiny brain. Hey, a gal can hope !

You guys need to really thank Lori, Jenn, and Daven for setting this up. Having it in one place helps me as well as you guys. Then, if you want more advanced coloring ideas go dig around my blog.

Nope. Sorry I don't fly in until Friday evening. I'll be setting up the Copic Booth and visiting the certification class and the SCS booth on Saturday though. I'll be around, but I'll also be all over the place

Well, that's the Hobby Lobby list. That's a great resource too, but Archiver's has a different selection - at least mine does. The selection available at Archiver's may vary from location to location for all I know. Thanks though!

Was it the one in this thread:
Copics-what to use with these colors?

She posted it in another thread too but I think it's the same one.

Does anyone know what a good darker green would blend with YG03 and YG07?

Thank you for any help.

YG03, YG07, G28. I know it breaks the form, but it will blend well, trust me.

You might try going to BG09 or BG18. If that's not dark enough then add the G28 as well.

Thanks Marianne, that really helps. Ok a few more for you because you are on a roll and I bought my first batch of copics without a real plan of blending...

Lighter and Darker colors to work with Y38
Lighter and Darker to go with B26
Lighter Orange to go with YR09

Thank you so much for your help, it is so appreciated.

question--can I use the standard fine replacement nibs that are for the original markers in the sketch markers? I don't think I'll ever use the broad nib on the other end of the sketch, but if I can put fine nibs in, I think I would use them... does anyone know?

The only replacement nib that works in the sketch and the ciao marker is the "medium round", the fine nib is only offered in the original copic.

I use my chisel end all the time for coloring my ribbon to match

Can you color directly on rubber stamps with Copic markers, like you can with the SU Markers?
