Default Copic markers

I would love to have all of the markers, but can't afford them. For the ones that do have them, what colors do you use the most? I would love to buy a few (4 or 5) individually but can't decide on the colors. Thanks for your help.

I am way behind the times. . .what are copic markers? Is this something that SU is coming out with, or do you buy them at craft stores?

SU does not have them - they are different than the water based markers that SU has - Here are some links with more info....

I am also wanting these but am going to have to buy a few at a time. Jeanne S. has a list on her blog that shows matches to SU colors, so I am thinking I will start with those. The shortcut is in the second link above if you want to check it out.

The only one I have is Skin White- it is a must have.

My only issue is it smears all the black inks I have- even if I don't color directly on them- it seeps through the paper and makes them smear- very frustrating. I've tried it with Stazon, SU Classic, and Palette Noir.

I use Marvy Matchable Ink to stamp images that I color with Copic markers.

When coloring with the Copics, it will bleed through to the other side and you will need to layer the image. If you use matte coated paper, it will not bleed through. The markers work differently on the matte coated paper than regular cardstock.

I would suggest buying the lighter colors first. You can layer color on color to make it a darker shade.

There is a meaning behind the letters and numbers on the markers.

E = earth tones
R = reds
B = blues
BG = blue greens

Most of them are self explanatory. The grays (and there are a LOT of grays) have three different letters.
C = cool
W = warm
N = neutral

After the letters there are numbers. All of the markers that start with 1 will go together. Likewise, the ones starting with 2 will go together and so on. Not to say you can't mix them. The larger the second number, the darker the shade.

If you have someone that is near you that has some markers, ask them to scribble color on your palette and you can color some of yours on one for them. That way you can use this color for shading. It doesn't rub off the palette and will stay for an indefinite amount of time. Just touch the tip of a marker to the color and you will pick some up on the marker, color / shade with it. It will not stain the marker, the color will come off on the paper.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for your answers. I don't have anyone near me that has them, but I love the things that I have seen them used on in the gallery and on some blogs. I'm still not certain as to what colors to get ... lol

Those inks will not work well with Copics. VersaFine Black and Brilliance black work the best of the Georgia Pacific cardstock that you can get at walmart. HTH.

I would just go to hobby lobby and pick a few staple colors, a few browns, a few blues, and a few greens. And practice with those. Thats what I did only I grabbed a few pinks and browns and played with them, fell in love and now I have a full set of them. www.allthatscraps.com has sets of 12 for 48 dollars.

Thanks- I'll try the brilliance (I just hate having to wait for it to dry!)

Oh I'm so glad they are carrying smaller packages of them now! Yippee...$48 that I can "justify".
