Getting Started with Copics: Color Blending Skin
I only bought one skin color for now because it’s such a great flesh color, but I love looking at other people’s work and how they achieve results (best video tutorial on faces I’ve seen so far).
I wonder if I can apply these these principles using limited Copics with my Sharpies and Bics? I’m anxious to try with like color groups for better shading!
Man! Wish I’d known how great the prices were here at 7KidsCollegeFund (a great site altogether, thought I’ve found Nestabilities for less elsewhere) before I bought mine at Hobby Lobby, though I was thankful to get to actually SEE the colors on a scratch pad before buying–that was worth the extra few bucks to me at the time. Still, if I ever invest in any more, I’ll go with a buck fifty cheaper!
Isn’t this good info? I just learned that for Copic to not bleed, you can’t use StayzOn ink pads for your stamping–actually, I just had that confirmed in a reading, but I’d already found that out my first time using them…what a mess! They (7kids articles) also say you also need this paper, but I’m currently trying a glossy “Comic Paper” I bought first??? I have a few Momentos ink stamps they say work with Copics without bleeding ink from the stamp onto faces, so I’m trying that next. I don’t have the black yet, and would love it. Maybe I can win it? Here’s to trying!!!
