Question Good markers for coloring that don't bleed through paper so much?

My 14 yo dd loves to draw and color with markers. She would totally deserve a set of copics because she's very good at it. Only thing is she doesn't like them because of the bleeding. She doesn't want to have to use certain papers and she likes to use bigger papers sometimes (like those big rolls for life-size pics). I gave her my set of 48 zig markers but the two she uses most are already going dry and they aren't refillable. She has had Marvy and Tombow markers in the past and they don't last either (the ink or the brush tips). Is there a good refillable marker that doesn't bleed through like copics do?

Here's a simple solution, Gina K Design Pure Luxury White 120# CS. No bleed through and it's only $6.95 for 25 sheets! I love it! You can layer and layer and shade as much as you want and no bleed through!

Maybe a set of artist quality pencil crayons would be a good alternative. You can get some very realistic results with blending with a good pencil crayon and they certainly won't bleed to the back of the paper.

But the thing is she doesn't want that paper. She wants to be able to use her roll of paper to make a 4' tall picture or to be able to just do a quick drawing in her composition book.

thanks everyone, for the suggestions. So far she has colored pencils, my zig markers, and my set of bruynzeel pastel pencils. She likes the markers the best so that's why I'm hoping to find some kind of marker that can be refilled but I may just have to find a source for the individual zigs.

There just isn't a refillable marker that is not going to bleed through that thin rolled paper. There are no refillable water based that I could find and all refillables I did find are alcohol based(like Copics) and are going to bleed through that thin rolled paper. Wish there was a better answer.
