I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend! We did. It was very warm and sunny here, which was nice!
I recently got a pack of Copic markers and I’ve been trying to figure them out.
If you don’t know what Copics are, they’re alcohol based markers used for illustrations and blending. There are the Copic Ciaos, Copic Originals, and Copic Sketch markers. I have the Floral Favorites Copic Sketch set.
The barrels of the markers are really nice, and I like how they have the color number on both caps, and the color name. The brush end is marked with a grey band on the barrel, which is very convenient ( the brush is my go-to!). The only thing that would make these great would be if the cap ACTUALLY FIT on the end!!? (It’s 100% necessary.)
They’re really bendable, and the same color can layer and get darker very nicely, which is great for shading. The only problems with these markers, and doing a lot of layering, is that it bleeds pretty bad through the paper. They work really nicely on watercolor, bristol board and card stock paper. I have been using them in my sketchbook lately, even though they bleed to the next page. I can still sketch over them(:
Before I got these Copics I used these knock-off brand from Dick Blick, but they don’t hold a stick to the Copic markers! I still use them with may new markers, though.
I did some quick sketches to test the blending abilities, and to just figure them out in general! I want to do a more in-depth review, but now I shall move on to other things(:
Now, there has been a long time since my last post, so I’m going to do some little picture updates!
There are so many beautiful flowers blooming everywhere around us, and I’ve been filling my memory card up so much with flower pictures😆
Thank you so much for reading! Y’all are such dears😚
I hope you all have a wonderful day!
What was your favorite picture? Do you have Copics? Do you like markers or paint better? Are there flowers where you live?
