CHA Summer 2011: Copic Markers

Reported by Simone Collins

Copic Markers have quickly become the alcohol marker of choice or rubber stampers and scrapbookers alike. Here at CHA, it was nice to see all 346 colors up close.

Plus, it is nice to see designers like Colleen Schaan working with the markers and getting some of her pro tips.

Coloring enthusiasts are going to love the new Shadows and Shading by Marianne Walker. This beginners guide will explain light placement and includes guides as well.

Copic also works with their air brushing systems.

Marianne Walker was there to show us how easy it is to use with the markers.

These atyou Spica Glitter Pens are a great way to add a little bling to any project. They come in 24 colors and feature a no-clog nib.

The biggest news at the show is the introduction of Copic’s new website, Copic Color. Copic Color is a community for people who love Copic markers. This new website allows people to keep track of the markers they have and want, create custom color palettes to share with their friends, post artwork made with Copic Markers, find Copic Marker dealers carrying the colors they want, and best of all it is optimized for mobile devices.

And if that wasn’t enough, here is some of the great samples featured in the Copic booth.

Are you a Copic fanatic? What do you love about them? And what do you think about the new Copic Color? We would love to know!

    Copic markers are wonderful. The new web site has so much information
    There are lots of sites giving lessons on how to use copics. They are not expensive. Search the web for Copic classes.

    I hadn’t ever heard of them before today. I love the array of colors and I will most likely be purchasing the Spica Glitter Pens shortly along with many others. The quality is just out of this world! Thanks!!

    I love seeing the actual markers displayed like this, I wish I could blow this up, because now I can see which reds are actually the ones I want, and find it difficult in most scanned charts. They look so awesome, I want them all…haha! bluemoonbynite at yahoo dot com

    LOVE my COPICS!!!!! I keep my list of Copics in an EXCEL spread sheet list on my computer, as well as on my phone so I always have it with me! I just write ‘R’ beside the number and name of the marker to let me know I have the refill. Will check out the new site.

    I have not used Copics because of their availability here and the price. I watch tutorials and think all the shades of color are super!

    I have all 346 and I LOVE them. If you have them, and love them, do check out a Certification class near you. I’m certified and I was lucky enough to have Marianne Walker as my teacher, such fun and very informative. The array of things you can do with these markers is incredible. I use at least one on every layout or card I make.
