Here's some useful information about Copics and watercolor paper, straight from the source:
I Like Markers: Copics & Watercolors, Part 2

Copics work best on cardstock like X-Press-It Blending Card or Gina K. Pure Luxury. I haven't tried them on glossy cardstock, but I don't think that would show them to their best advantage.
Checked out the site you linked me to and found it very interesting in that I don't think I will "waste" my Copics on watercolor paper. I think while I learn anyway, I will use watercolor crayons on water color paper and Copics on the GK. The Tombows don't blend well just bright colors as is. Do you know if there is a blending solution for them?
