Default Copic Jelly????

I am new to Copic markers. I have been doing some Copic marker classes. I am struggling with brand new markers leaving a gummy sticky ink on my coloring. My markers are brand new. I am using X-press It cardstock. I color with both caps off and I keep them stored horizonally. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Just because yours are new doesn't mean they haven't been sitting on a shelf for a long time. I think I would take them back to where you purchased them, show them the problem and ask for a replacement. And check the replacement before you leave the store. If you are sure it isn't the paper you are using, take a piece of that along with you also for testing out the markers. I bought a brand new ink pad once, took it home and took off the wrapper, opened it and it had "bumps" all over it..........when I took it back to the LSS she took one look at it and said it was moldy and promptly replaced it.

I am hoping for some resolution.

That Jelly can also happen if you lay too much ink on the paper and the paper cannot absorb any more ink. Does it happen right away or after you layer and blend your colors?

Most of the times it happens where layering. It's interesting. Best way to describe it is like coloring with nail polish. Then when you go to blend it reactivates pulling particles from the previous marker and often you can feel the marker pull. It's gummy and sticky. Others had said that they thought it was a dirty brush it and it looks like it could be. However they are brand new never been used. I would think that there would be more information available it this is a common characteristic. I am open to any thoughts.
