Copics-what to use with these colors?
 
I have been reducing my copic selection-for now I'm just putting some away and seeing how I do without them. If I don't miss them I'm going to sell them. So anyway I have a few colors that I don't seem to have anything to blend them with.

YG03. Does not match with 05 at all-03 is more of a yellow green and 05 is a clean green. I have 06 and it doesn't go either (06 and 05 are so close I took 06 out of the lineup)

YG67. 63 is too close-when I tried a blend I couldn't even tell.

BG93-I would like to find a lighter color that I can use with this.

YR16-YR14 isn't even the same kind of yellow. I don't have 12 so I didn't know if that blends well with 14 or 16 (or neither).

This is my current color lineup (plus the quad zeros and the c00 and w00-they don't show up well on the scan and this is an older chart I guess). I took about 50 markers out and put them away for now. Any colors that you would add? What I did was go by the SU color chart and then picked out colors that blended with them. I didn't have all of the colors so I may add those eventually and also want to add some to blend with colors I have but don't have blending colors for. So far on my wish list: YR24 to go with YR21, Y32 or Y35 to go with Y38, B23 to go with B21, E44 or E47 to go with E41 and E49. Plus some of the SU colors I don't have (and of course colors to blend with them): G99, B23, E74, B39, V95, RV25, E08. I'm not going to worry about adding in-color matches.

I have used YG03 YG06 and YG09 together
YG03, YG23, with YG25
YG03 with YG63

For examples of how they look check out Amy's blog A Thousand Sheets of Paper

She is awesome and lists what color combos she uses for each card. She did one where she used the following combo: dress- YG03, YG17, YG67
She uses YG03 with YG63 here

Have you tried working with the colors that don't seem to go? If not try them out because once they get on paper and you blend them they usually turn out great. I actually use YG03 and 05 together alot...

gale 01-15-2010 11:43 AM

thanks Michelle-I wrote those combos down.

Any good matches for BG93 and YR16?

YG01 is great with YG03....the cap looks yellower than the actual ink which can throw you off a little but it is quite a nice yellow green...

Sorry-I didn't see this. My problem is that none of the colors I own seem to go with these (with the exception of some of the YG colors). So I was hoping someone with the colors might know.

I don't have BG93 :(
But I use YR12, YR14, YR16, and YR18 all together. I have attached some of my blending practice. It is a bit sloppy but it shows that the color comes out like a ripe orange IMO.

Michellena317 01-15-2010 12:53 PM

I don't think YR18 is a good color to add when traditional blending. it works much better when added tip to tip. YR16 is bright so I use YR14 as a shadow for it.

gale 01-15-2010 01:34 PM

See that's why I get confused. Using YR14 as a shadow for YR16 is totally opposite what it's supposed to be.

gale 01-15-2010 01:35 PM

ok looking at my chart maybe YR16 could be used as a shadow color for Y17 or maybe even Y38. I'll have to try it. Do you have a source for those blank circle charts or did you make those yourself?

Hi Gale, I make the charts myself. Here is the word document.

gale 01-19-2010 01:02 PM

thanks! I'll use those and change the colors if I need to.

Michelle, these are great charts!
