Default I want to color with both Copics and Distress Inks on the same paper...

What do you recommend that is NOT a watercolor paper? I've just watched the most amazing coloring by scrapgirlangie. Check out her youtube videos coloring skin and hair with Copics and her beautiful coloring with the distress inks, followed by some 'deep shading.' She uses artist marker pads that I couldn't quite catch the name of - or maybe they weren't specifically named. I've been all over the internet trying to find these marker pads - were they from Bee Paper Company? Looked like she used Memento ink.

Maybe Angie is on Splitcoast? Her coloring is simply the BEST and since I have an enormous amount of Copics and all the Distress Inks, I'd love to start practicing if I could come up with the artist marker pads she used.

Thanks in advance,
Molly

I just went to check out the videos. Wow! She is really good. Anyway, I think this is the paper she is talking about. You might want to leave a comment on her video and double check. HTH!

I use Neenah paper for Copic coloring and inking/blending with Distress Inks. Works wonderfully. I tend to stamp, color, then blend with the Distress Inks over the Copic coloring.

I looked at a couple of her videos and as far I could tell all she used was the distress inks. The deep shading was just done with the walnut stain ink pad with a dry brushing technique. For the coloring, she looked like she just made a pallette with her ink pads by stamping the pads on a piece of acetate. I don't know if I missed any of the videos. But I hope this helps

She uses copics for the skin tones and the hair. She uses distress ink on the rest of the image. Also, she uses the Bee Paper Manga artist pad. That paper is very thin so you can't use distress inks like you would on watercolor paper. HTH

I *think* that a bristol cardstock would work. It's thicker so it would hold up to water and I have used it in the past with copics.

I buy the Canson bristol pads....you can get them at Michaels although I find them cheaper at the art store.

Maybe I'll give it a try and report back by the end of the week. I just got a ton of new distress inks to try out
