For those of you wanting to learn how to use the Copic markers in your artwork, I'll be ready to offer Copics 101 in the very near future. I am just waiting for the materials from the office to arrive which should be tomorrow. Please let me know if you are interested and I'll let you know further details. I will be doing a demo at the Gowanda Crop - see the calendar on the right for crop details. If you have been reading my blog since the beginning you'll know that I am a Certifed Copic Designer by Copic and the class is focused on papercrafters, stampers & scrapbookers.
And here is my first tip - when purchasing your markers, do not buy them in sets! You want to pick your favorite color and then pick 2 more. One that is 2-3 numbers higher and one that is 2-3 numbers lower. If you purchase a set you'll get a wide variety of colors but you won't be able to do shading with what is in the set.
