Default Pumpkin Pie Debate

Here's another picture for comparison...you girls had me re-thinking the Pumpkin Pie match...but I decided to stick with YR16 as the closest, though I don't have YR15.

YR14 is browned out and YR12 is too pale. YR12 would work...don't get me wrong on that, but the closest match is YR16 as when it's layered multiple times it is nearly a perfect match, and one single layer is lighter.

On the photo each marker is layered once...and then I colored over half of the sample about 3 times, soaking it for maximum color.

(White is PTI)

You might want to look at this comparison chart with the inks and the markers. It's *very* helpful ....

I think you have to heat set the adirondack. They say momento ink is the best and I've used it and it doesn't bleed. I think when I first got it I would color right after stamping and even that bled, but now I wait awhile or heat set even that just for the added protection. I always use GP.

I am a fan of Memento-- you do not have to heat set it. I also have brilliance which works well but you do have to heat set it. I tried Nick Bantock but the pad was really dry right when I got it and I was not motivated to get the reinker bc I liked the Memento, which was part of the same order. Otherwise, not so much luck, and as you note, many inks can bleed....

So happy about new Spica colors, btw!

Yes-- Rich Cocoa and London Fog, respectively. I got mine via Ellen Hutson, who also has the refills, after striking out locally despite the fact that I live in a major metropolitan area. And of course, it comes in black. I really think you will be very happy with these.

I use it a lot, not only to create effects, but to correct mistakes I've made while coloring.

i love that...everytime i ask about the blender...people kindly remind me that it doesn't blend. i do understand that. i just call it what it is named, LOL. don't take that the wrong way, i'm just sitting here laughing. i don't know why they call it a blender. it keeps making me look stupid! well, i am kinda stupid about copics still but.... yes, i DO understand it picks up color and does not blend it.

Well technically it doesn't take the color away either, it rather pushes the pigments away. If you drop some blender on an Copic colored area, it will create a white area, and surounding that area, the color will be darker because the pigments where movd there by the blender solution...

For all of you, Copic addicts, out there: if you were to buy your first set, what would it be??? I don't own any yet and would love to start buying them, but I'm a bit lost... Help, please!!!

That will depend on the amount of $$ that you can spend. I think getting the 36 color set would be a good start, and then build up your collection from there by adding individual colors as needed.

If you plan on getting a 72 color set, then the B-set is the one I would choose (and I did, that was my first big set I bought).

I don't have an exact answer to your question but after buying 3 smaller sets I realized I had a lot of holes and I didn't have much to blend with - as in similar colors.
So I would go for a set that has similar colors in it. If you can get a hold of a color chart it would help.
If possible get a good size set and then you can buy some individuals to fill in
You are going to love them!!!

There are so many ways to blend with copics! You can even go with blending from low to highest on a pallette .. I use an acrylic block. For example.. put some E39 ink on pallatte and pick up with E33 marker to do branches,, You can create shadows/shades. I this alot with trees, also with blues for water....
Also, I have bought sets from copicmarkers.com, You can get a 12 piece set that you can choose your own colors yourself...

Also, I use brilliance ink. I usually just stamp a bunch of images at once. Then color another day. I never heat set it, it doesnt run this way. I just places an order to Papertrey Ink for the Palette Black Noir ink, I hear it is great with copics, I will let you know. Does anyone else use it?

I wouldn't buy a set. They are priced exactly the same if you buy a set or individuals on all the sites I know of...the only advantage is the case. Though copicmarkers.com sells custom sets with a case.

I would buy a *custom set* or individuals in colors you like. That way you aren't stuck with 6 yellows and only 2 blues when you use blue a lot...or a lack of blending colors but a ton of grays.

I have a basic starter suggestion on my blog...geared towards the softer rustic colors I use all the time....it might be your style too...or maybe not.

When I picked out my first Copics (not a set) I decided to concentrate on blending colors for specific type stamp images: leaves, trees, and flowers. I wanted to be able to complete several projects without being frustrated by the lack of the necessary color. My first ones, therefore, were several greens, browns, a pink, a light gray for outlining, and the colorless blender. If I had planned to concentrate on people, on furry little animals, or fish, then my choice would have been for a much different assortment.

Not really on just a few. Which colors do you need? Maybe try the BST forum...there are some selling just a few...including me...LOL And from a private sale shipping would only be about $2.

Otherwise all the deals are if you spend $50 or more, you get free shipping...oozak and creativeplaystamps both do it.

I just found this thread so please excuse me if this question has been asked before but which type of copic do you like the best? My local stamping store has two different models and I was wondering what i should get. When I color with my SU markers 90% of the time I am using the brush side. Also I know that you can reink the copics...has anyone done this? How hard is it to do? Thanks so much ladies!

Oh you are so lucky to have both. I just don't know since I have three and have never used them until this past weekend when I took a class. Still looking at all the youtube tutorials. I hope my head stops spinning soon lol

I only buy Sketch...I like having just one kind...all matchy matchy.

I prefer the Sketch over Ciao for a few reasons:

~ Sketch come in 322 colors and Ciao *only* 144...still a lot, but I hate to see a color I can't buy.

~ Sketch have the numbers on the end of the cap so it's easier to find the color I need.

~ Sketch come with more ink than Ciao to start with.

~ Sketch are oval shaped so they can't roll away from you.

I just wanted to share my adapted version of the color chart. I'm not sure who to give the original Excel credit to...so my apologies...possibly a Sharon?

BUT I reworked it to separate the number groupings. So in each horizontal section the first number is the same. Basically the vibrancy of the colors are grouped together. All the zeros go across, then the 1's etc. The colors get more gray/dull the lower on the page you go.

I keep telling myself I'm done buying, and then I find new colors I NEED. This helps me figure out colors that will coordinate without having to think too hard.

Hope this is useful to someone! Feel free to ask questions.

I have both Ciao and Sketch, and I love them both. I like the Sketch because they have the number on the end of the marker so you can see it. But, I got my Ciao in sets (6 sets of 12 each), and they work just as great as the Sketch. Either way, you can't lose.

I keep telling myself I'm done buying, and then I find new colors I NEED. This helps me figure out colors that will coordinate without having to think too hard.

Hope this is useful to someone! Feel free to ask questions.
Do you mean you adapted it from this one:

http://copicmarker.com/Blank%20Hand%20Color%20Chart.pdf ?

If so...the credit goes to Copic Marker themselves.

I was thinking I might do one with bigger swatches like yours...so half could be colored dark and the other half just one layer...that would prevent me from buying more I think....though there are only 150 left...HAHA!

I think it was modeled after that one...but someone here actually posted their version in which they had hand typed all of those squares into Excel! And there was a code for markers coming in different styles. But I ignored that and just bought copic original and sketch for my own random reasons and store them mixed together but organized by color groupoing.

I have an excel spreadsheet with all the colors, but it's like 6 pages with 2 color families per page. Is there anyway you could download yours as it appears to be only 1 page which would make taking it with me to the store for the "missing" colors much easier.

Thanks

Default Found It!

Oooh! I found it! The name on the original file was Sharon Harnist!

She must have typed in all those numbers! The first Excel tab is her original...all on one page like copicmarkers.com.

The second tab is my version after I separated the color sections out.

I found this post from Amuse news and thought I should share because I'm thinking of buying a set and this is info about Spica that I haven't heard of yet. Gale, do you store yours flat? If not, is it true that they don't sparkle? I usually like to store my markers & pens in a little craft tin pail.

Thumbs up Excellent customer service from Oozak

I ordered a sketch case and some markers and some brush nibs for my few original markers from Oozak this morning. Rusty just called me to make sure I meant to get original marker nibs as all the markers I'd purchased from him were sketch. I thought it was awfully sweet, and he deserves props at the very least!

I'm confused? Did you change your avatar and quote? Or are you not the same Gale who is "inappropriately blunt"??? LOL

The charts at http://copicmarker.com/library.html are great...one is all on one page and shows which colors come in which style, and you can color in for samples of what you have.

There are also Swatch pages...I printed this too, it's two pages, but I love it, because I can check off what I have and I keep it in a folder so I don't buy doubles.

Also the color wheel helps to know which colors are alike.

Pretty much everything there is HELPFUL!
