I have quite a collection of copics and I also have the little catalog/color chart and it. It is still not representative of the colours (that's why i need them all so i can decide for myself! LOL!). If you go to Debbie Olson's blog (the best copic colorist on the net IMO!) and scroll down a bit you will see her list of fav copic color combo's. i would start there! here is the link:

This is a two part answer- first, here are some combos for different jeans IMO:

Bright Denim: B24 + B26
Light Denim: B41 + B45
Faded Denim: B93 + B97
Average Denim (the kind my husband likes): B34 + B37

Plus a pic-

Default Stonewashed Jeans with Copic

Second part of the post- How to make them look faded or stonewashed.

I used the B34 + B37 combo and colored each one exactly the same as the previous post.

1. WIth my blender marker I just dabbed on blender, randomly. Let your pen sit in a spot for just a moment to really soak in the blender. If you want it lighter, then let your jeans dry and do it again.

2. Using the blender marker start in the middle of each leg and really saturate the pants. This pushed the color out to the edges and gives you that perfect "bleached" jeans look

3. For a paint-splatter/random splotchy jean look I used the Copic blender solution straight from the bottle onto a wadded paper towel and dabbed it on. Hold it for a second for a stronger effect (this can also be done with rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer- test it first)

4. It's hard to see in the picture, but I took an old lace doily (how the heck do you spell it??) and used that to dab on blender solution. The pants pick up the texture off the doily- this works with old sweaters and burlap as well.

ps... don't go looking for this jeans stamp, I didn't have one so I just drew this pair. Use these techniques on your favorite bellas or hannas - they have some great pants! try the doily or burlap technique on brown pants and it really looks great!

any time! I'm happy to help share color combos, since copic marker colors can be tricky to match. it's always easier if you have a large collection, but if you don't know where to start, well.... that's the tricky part.

There is so much great advice on this thread. I'll just add one more tip. You can often mix colors to get the shade you want. If you have one of the lightest shades of each color ("000" or "00") you can use them to adjust your colors. A light grey (like C1 or T1) is especially good for this.

Default Matching copics to papers

The color numbers explain other qualities of the marker colors:

B05, Y06, G05, etc. these are very vibrant, saturated colors. Think basic crayon colors. How can I tell? the 0 in the middle tells me they're very vibrant. If I'm making a picture for small kids these are instant winners

B95, YG95, V95 these are earthy, dusky colors. Earth tones. How can I tell? The 9 in the middle means how much gray they have. If I'm working on a muted or earthy palette then these work well.

How this helps:

Say you find a perfect paper and it matches your B95 marker, so you want to use that as your main color in the stamped image of a couple flowers.
You find the shadow (B97 or B99) and the highlight (B93). That's great, but now you need other colors besides blue in your picture!

To keep it feeling the same you need a purple (highlight V93, middle color V95, shadow V99) and a green (G82 and G85 work well, since 80 is close to 90 in grayness). See how easy it is? now you don't have to guess what colors will look great together!

WOW... this is a GREAT way of explaining this... thank you soooooo much! I love my Copics and just keep buying more and more... and I find that I am learning so much just by playing and trying new combinations! Great thread!

How many blender pens do you need? One for each color family? Or will 2 work for awhile?

Default I think..

the pen numbers should be every other one....like - 2 - 4 - 6...I think. I'm trying to figure all of this out too.

I've used a few of them now and sometimes they seem to only show 2 colors when I color and times I can see the 3 colors.

So--I'm not an expert-I'm just trying to learn on my own with the help of this board!!

Have fun-

Ginger

is there by chance a color chart made up somewhere of which copics match the SU! colors? I looked but couldn't find one.

How far apart should the colors be? For example if I want 3 different blues to go together, I know the middle number should be the same but what about the last numbers? How far apart should they be?
Gale,

can you wait and check my blog post tomorrow? I have the answer to this all typed up and ready to post tomorrow (I'm just adding pictures)! As for the blender pen, check out the post today.
