I must add that I have the whole set of SN markers (I know, full-set-syndrome). But I decided to go with a different option. I didn't really like the way the SN worked. Blending was an issue for me. That's a different issue though.

I'm using SU's alcohol markers and finding that they are just enough for me. I prefer the brush tip for one. I can blend well with them. They aren't wickedly expensive. So that's my choice for alcohol markers right now.

But I do have to add that I am going to keep several of my SN markers that I will definitely use. I kept a few flesh color markers. And one or two pale blues that work for a background outline. Also a couple of sets of 4-5 grays that I can work with for other things. I'm trying out a few other very pale colors as well...but all those pales are for a base coat under some of my Chameleon markers. Here's one card that I base-coated with light blue then layered with a Chameleon.

Back to the tri-blend from SN...I wonder if these will end up replacing the set of 168? I know that many of the large set markers are duplicated colors.
