Question Shoot! I ordered the wrong Copics! What should I do?

I ordered some Copics on Amazon and thought I was getting Sketch markers, but they were Originals. It was my mistake although the listing could have been a lot more clear. It appears that I can return them but I was thinking instead I might get some brush nibs and switch out the chisel tips. How do the Sketch Super Brush tips compare to the Original Brush tips? I want to be able to do the flicking technique for coloring hair, etc. Thanks!

The brush nib available or the Original is not as long or flexible as the Super Brush nib on the Sketch, but you can still use it for the flicking motion to apply ink. It's actually a nice option for people who need a little more control than they get with the super brush.

I've attached photos of each of the nibs. You will notice that the brush on the Original does not fit in the chisel end, but it fits in the fine tip end.

Copic Original Brush Nib - HERE

Sketch Super Brush Nib - HERE

Hope that helps!

You might want to try them out for awhile before considering a nib switch. They are more effective on small or detailed stamp images---easier to get into the narrow spaces. I have a few and don't mind at all that the tip is smaller/harder. On the positive side, too, the Originals have more ink than the Sketch
