Default White Highlight Pen do you use with Copic Markers?

A lot of people when they are done with like black hair...they bring out a white pen. Either I'm not listening very well or I didn't search hard enough, but which pen do you use?

Thanks for your help,

Sheila

Like black hair?

are you talking about drawing in highlights? I use a white signo gel pen when I need to add opaque white to areas I've coloured.

Actually, Copic makes a white pigment paint for that purpose: https://icopic.com/store/product_inf...roducts_id=668 One of Marianne Walker's early blog entries describes using it for things like snow highlights.

I use my white Prismacolor pencil (because I can blend it out a bit if it looks too harsh). Note that you should never use the Copics on top of the pencils 'though...

I did this once or twice (small areas) does it ruin the markers?

Also thanks for the tip to use a white prisma pencil. I lost my white signo gel pen, and I just starting doing the gel pen technique with copics . I think I have a white prisma pencils somewhere.

i don't like using it because of how you have to apply it. i like using a pen to draw it on.

Thanks for everybody's input.

I've tried every white gel pen, and paint marker and hated them all until I tried the Sharpie Poster paint extra fine pen. Excellent! Very opaque, no skips.

I think I read on Marianne's blog (ilikemarkers) that it *can* ruin the markers. I haven't been brave enough to try to find out for myself!

Remember that the nibs are replaceable, so if you DO ruin a tip, you don't actually ruin the whole marker.

Smile Signo gel

I know many people like the Stampin' Up UniBall Signo, but I think they skip a lot, they work well only when they are very new. They seem to dry out quickly. I am on my 3rd pen within a short period of time. I am still looking for that favorite white gel pen.

Check Kristina Werner's video here. It is a very quick review, with new pens, and not a test of the pens over time.

or here is a list of her favorite tools including her favorite white gel pen:

Good luck.

I like the Inkessentials White Gel Pen. It has stayed much better for me than the Signo pen did. The Signo pen also skips a lot and it takes a while just to get any gel to come out at all. I have bought three of them too! Now I just go for the Inkessentials and it works great!

I like the inksentials white pen by Ranger - I've found it does not skip - my signo pen tends to skip.

Can anyone point me in the right direction to finding a tutorial or examples of highlighting? I use SU's white gel pen, but when I have tried this, I just can't get it to look right.
