Default Copic colors to blend with B79 ?

I like B79 Iris, but I can't see which colors will blend with it.

Does Anyone use this color and can you recommend other colors that blend well with it??
Obviously B79 would be the dark value. What would be the medium and light values for this color ?

Thanks
Barbara

Sorry I can't help because I don't have that one. I just looked at the color chart and it's a lovely color, but as you say they haven't made any others that seem to blend with it. I hope someone can answer, because I'd like to purchase this one too if there is a lighter shade that will work.

Before I comment, I must give a disclaimer that I don't have copics. However I am an artist and I do use color system color wheels like the copic one...just for my watercolor paints.
Here's the copic color wheel I am looking at:

It appears that since the B79 is the only marker in the B70 series, there is not a direct match. It is possible that the medium and lighter tints of the B60 series colors would give a decent match.

Let me know what you find out with that.

I have used that one to shade itself, you color in the areas that you want shaded then leave them for 30 seconds to 1 minute then go over the area again and take it out a little further then wait then you color in the whole area. It is a subtle difference in shading but that is the only thing that I could figure out until they come up with another color to use with it.

Or go over it with a grey, to create a shadow...

thanks for this thread! I was trying to decide if I should purchase B79 and could not for the life of me remember ever seeing anyone else using this color blended with any other colors. Guess I don't need it.

I figured it out
B79 & B63 and tip to tip for the middle color
B63 is quite light but the same shade

You can also use the palette method and use your colorless blender

I tried the colorless blender method tip to tip to get the light shades and because B79 is is dark it was blotchy. Unless I was doing something wrong.
I think I would have needed to actually mix B79 & the colorless blender solution, but I don't have an empty marker.

Use like an acrylic block and scribble b79 on it .. then use the colorless blender to pick up the color ... hopefully this will work better for you.

What is the palette method? Are you scribbling the marker on an acrylic block and then mixing it with the colorless blender before you apply it to the image?

EDIT: OOps!! you answered my questions
Thanks

I just tried the palette method with B79 & the colorless blender.

I actually got a better shade using the palette method and using B63 instead of the colorless blender.

B79 and the custom shades are beautiful Iris blues ( to the blue/purple side)
Thanks for the tip on the palette method. It is a smoother blend for a larger area than tip to tip

I love this method ... I feel you get better control of how much of the other color you are picking up.

Looked on my color chart first, then tried blending B63 and B66 with B79. Looks pretty good to me!
