Today I'm happy to bring you Part 2 of my Copic Favorites Series! While Part 1 was geared more toward Copic users in general, this video is for card makers more specifically. I talk about what inks are best to use with Copic coloring, how your work surface can affect your coloring results, and which three group blends of markers I recommend getting first when you are building up your collection. I chose markers in a rainbow of colors, as well as a few basic neutrals, so you can pick and choose which families suit the kind of images you want to be able to color most.
The video is long, since there was a lot of ground to cover, so at the end of this post, you will find a complete list of the markers I mention in the video. I really hope you find it helpful and informative! If you do, please hit that like button on YouTube and subscribe to my channel!
