Direct to paper blending.

You will need 3 colors in the same family (same gray scale and about a number apart) to try this out. I used B00, B02, B04

1. Color you image with your lightest color. Make sure to color in circles to avoid streaks. I leave some areas uncolored in my first coat so that when I go over it it will be a lighter area.

2. While it’s still wet, add your darkest color to your “shadow side”. Do this by doing strokes and lifting up your marker at the end of your stroke so the edge has more color than the end of your stroke.

3. Use your lightest color again and go over the image to blend you lines. Thicker papers will take more blending. If it’s not working try using colors that are closer in numbers

4. Keep doing steps 2 and 3 until you get the effect you want

5. You can add your middle color now where you want it. Then use your lightest color to blend it all together.

This takes practice. And I found to start that blues, greens and light browns were the easiest. Reds were the hardest to blend but I got it after lots of practice. That’s the key with Copics, practice.

Good morning, today I have my May Copic projects. If you haven’t checked out our Copic club you can go here for all the details. It’s a super deal and a great way to get your marker collection going. Now my projects:

I used the “tip to tip” technique to color her cheeks. It makes it look more subtle.

Copics: E21, E35, E37, E50, R20, V95, V15, B00, B08,
Spica Pens: Garnet

Again I used the “tip to tip” on the cheeks and I used it on the mug

Copics: E21, E31, E35, E37, E50, R20, G20, G24, V13, V15, B00, B02

For this one, I used the “tip to tip” technique on the orange flowers. Because orange can be a harsh color it made it easier to blend

Copics: E21, E31 E35, E37, E43, E50, G94, YR04, YR07, YR09, R20, B93, B97
Spica pens: Orange

Copics: E00, E35, E37, E39 G94, YG13, RV10, Y38, R46, W5

To learn more about the “tip to tip” technique you can head to the Copic forum here. Lisa has done a wonderful post on this.

Every month on the 12th we will be posting a new tip for your Copics. It may be about coloring, other uses or just some information on the markers themselves. Lisa and I will each have a tip. This month, I’ll also share our April tips too. If you want to sign up for this great club you can find all the information here.

So here are our tips:

April

Lisa: When you use your copic markers you have the chisel end and the brush end (sketch markers). There is a picture on either end of the barrel showing what “type of tip” is at each end. However……..did you know….that the BRUSH end (the one we most always use) has a GREY RING around that end. Therefore….you can tell at a glance which end to open!!!

Ann: Ok so I know we are selling Sketch markers but I do know there are a lot of you out there that have the CIAO markers, so here is a little info:

The Ciao markers were actually intended for children. The marker was made for smaller hands and the maker tops have holes in them so if swallowed or inhaled a child could still breath. Now if you look inside your marker cap you will notice it does keep it air tight. So be very careful when putting the cap on b/c there is space where you can “jam” you marker tip into the side and wreck it.

And you must make sure you hear a click when you put any of your marker tops on to ensure they are closed air tight.

May

Lisa: Copic colors have been around for 25 years and you can still get the same colors as you could 25 years ago. So you never have to worry about a color being discontinued.

Ann: If you are just starting your collection buy in the same color family number (ie, stay in the 20’s, keeping gray scales consistent). Pick a color and then “build” around it. For example: Start with B20, and then buy B22, B24 and then to add your greens add G20, G22 and then your Reds R20….etc. The first number indicates the gray scale. You will find it easier to match if you are just starting out.
