OK, I'm brand new at this, and I know next to nothing,,,,

but I just bought a bunch of copics,,,,,I've had them six days,,,,,


and my C1 is already dry,,,,,,nib is white, ink gone,,,,,,,

It seems very odd to me because I had some oranges for quite some time,,,,,and they aren't CLOSE to dry,,,,,

I know I've been coloring quite a bit since I got them,,,,,but I don't think I've used more grey than any other color,,,,the cap wasn't off,,,,I haven't used water color paper or anything that would suck up the ink that fast,,,

it's a ciao, so I know it holds about 2cc's of ink,,,,,but honestly, that seems REALLY fast,,,,,,the others are fine,,,,at this point.


but I'm worried I'm going to be refilling all 22 of these things once a week

Is this normal????

No. I'd had mine for a good year before I had to refill one.

My first one was B10, an icy blue. My favorite blue. And I used it for a LONG time before a refill.

I am thinking you got one that was "tested" in the store or something. No, they should last a lot longer than that. But you can buy the refill!

I've emailed the place I bought it from. Hopefully they will send me a new one,,,,,,


or something. REfill it, something.

Holly as you know I do lots and lots of copics and it should have at least lasted you 6 months even if you used it a lot lot! they don't run out that fast. I think the store sent you a bad one.

I love BG10 for one of my blues bg10 and bg11 with bg00 is a beautiful combination.

thank you all for your answers,,,,,,IDK what the chances of them sending me a new one are,,,,with the way people are these days, it wouldn't surprise me if they just thought I was trying to exchange an old one for a new one,,,,,,

my biggest worry is do I refill it and possibly discover I have a bad pen,,,,,or do I just buy a new pen and call it one of those things??

six out of 21 colors now,,,,,I've gone though them all and those six are very streaky when I use the chisel marker,,,,,,

May the Copic Gods forgive me for not going through Rusty at Oozak,,,,,,,but this guy had free shipping for as few as 3 markers,

now I know why.

Amy, I got them at Otakufuel.com,,,,,,

whatever you do, DO NOT SHOP THERE.

If they do not refund my money, heads are going to roll.

thanks, ,Linda,,,,,I hope so too,,,,,but if I have to buy re-inkers, I have to buy them,,,,

I think the pen is ok,,,,

I kind of wonder if the ink is OLD, and maybe that's why he sells them cheap (3.59 a pen with free shipping)

You could very well be right about that. Oh well, at least they can be refilled. I do not have any yet. I was thinking of getting a few colors to ink stuff on certain pages like flowers & ribbons etc.

They wouldn't be a loss, you could still refill them. But yes, sounds like old inventory or another issue.

Hopefully it's just the six I've found,,,,,,

I don't mind buying re-inkers,,but I don't think I can afford 22 of them right now

Holly, there are 2 really really good stores to buy from for the Copics. One is ******** Blick art supplies--dickblick.com ---and the other is carpediem.com And SB sells them now too.
My DGDs look longing at them but these are the 1 item in my cache that no one but me touches!!!!

Have you tried coloring bling yet....OMG....your little commas will be HAPPPPPPYYYYYY!!!
