Thanks for joining me for another installment, this week we are talking all about Copics, what do the numbers mean? What are good blending groups? Do I buy sets or individual markers? Plus so many more questions, plus I have some printable I have to hand all the time as well as some online classes I have learnt a lot from. Let’s start with the tutorial and then we can talk more about my resources…
First of all my supply lists, my go to place to buy is Dick Blick that I have linked below, although sometimes I might add a pen or two to an order at Simon Says Stamp, plus right now you can use ‘Tim447’ for 10% off which makes them a pretty good buy there too. I also linked up the racks I use plus those dividers and the cardstock and ink I prefer from the previous weeks…
Also, I have the pictures of the little swatches with each pen…
Now for the fun part, all those printable and lessons; I should mention all these I have chosen and purchased myself, they have not been given to me, plus I’ve taken a few I didn’t like, but these are my picks…
- Copic Color Wheel
- Copic Color Chart
- Sandy Allnock Hex Chart
- Sandy Allnock Classes
- Kit & Clowder Classes
- Sharon Harnist’s Color Combo’s
I quickly wanted to talk about getting started too, with other markers I tend to buy sets, with copic their are some good blending sets of pinks, greens, etc at dick blick (linked above) but overall I prefer to buy marker by marker depending on what my next area to focus on is, be it Christmas, flowers, tree and leaves etc. I good set of grays will go far too, I like the warm and cool first and I would get a 0, 2, 4 and 6 to start plus the 100 black, I think you will surprised how much use you get from this basic set.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, tomorrow I will be having a YouTube live on my Scrapbook.com haul and on Friday we have a fun Youtube hop and of course its Freebie Friday time too!
