Bic Markers As Copic Colors

April 10, 2009 at 3:18 pm 2 comments

I’ve had the same experience as blogger “Spike” in not wanting to duplicate my BICs with Copics– starting out using a few Copics in greys and skin tones.  He’s made a list that gets the BIC colors close to references for Copics.  Very cool idea/list!  Thanks for your work, and for sharing!

He has had compliments on his match-work, so I have all faith it’s pretty true.  I plan to print it so that I can see if I have something close to what Copics users are using in BICs.  In his words:

The colour chart is subject to my eye matching the colours best I could. I took a piece of simply smooth cardstock with the Bics swatched on it and drew lines of copic colours beside it…if it matched, wahoo! These are in no particular order: (Bic-Copic)

Forest Green – G17
Key Lime – between YG07 and YG09
Margarita Green – YG13
Tranquil Teal – darker than BG11
Deep Sea Blue – B69
Blue Skies Blue – FB2
Oceanview Blue – B93
Hot Aqua – BG07
Yellow Blaze – Y08
Lemon Bliss – Y11
Woodsy Brown – E39
Fandango Pink – RV06
Playful Purple – B79
Polynesian Purple – between V15 and V17
Peach Parfait – E93
Sunset Orange – R05
Rambunctious Red – R08
Pink Flamingo – RV23

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
