Copic info

I really do find the Copics easy to use. It maybe it is because I spend a lot of time with my colored pencils & mineral spirits, blending until my fingers are numb. The fumes may have gotten to me.

I will be taking the Copic certification class at the end of the month. I can't wait to put that little button on this blog. I am going to Chino for the class. I had no luck convincing them to come to Vegas for me.

Really the only lessons I've had with them are on the web. I kind of took what I thought was the best of all of them and then gave it a shot. I need to tweak a few things. I really like mu first attempt-the blue bombshell. It did take about 2 hours. Not bad for a first try. Not good when my hubby pointed out it will probably sell for $5 on eBay this week. I don't sell them to make $$$$ just to justify my craft addiction. You know if I make $5, I feel perfectly justified in spending $20.

Speaking of price, I know they are expensive. I have to have the brush tipped sketch, they are refillable, your can air brush with them and they color on anything. I couldn't ask for more. Well except if they could put theselves away when I finish with them.

I addicted to Marianne and all the other Copic Diva's tutorials. My idol and paper craft goddess, Lauren Meader, has a different take on them. I like her easy going have fun with is style. I also read everything from Ellen Hutson's and her faboo design team.
