The Copic Addiction finally hit me! I see meself using more n more copics instead of me Bruynzeel colour pencils. I already have a few favorite colours that I use often. Like the E53- Raw Silk. This colour is just perfect as a base to age something. I also love the E21 and E50 for the skin on me Magnolia's. The V12 and V15 are me fave purple's and the BV02 and BV04 are me fave blue purple's. The E43 is perfect for vintage woolie socks.

I havent found the right pastel yellow yet. I'd like to have this pastel baby yellow. The Buttercup yellow Y21 is still too dark.

I'd like to know, what are your favorite Copic colours?

Lol Holly...I've noticed on the Copic colour wheel, that there isnt that many yellow colours.
I've ordered the Y00 today, hoping it'll be light enough... The same goes for the E43, I want a lighter colour of that one. It's the perfect colour for Dutch wooly socks that they wear at farms (see me Dutch magnolia card) but I dont see a lighter colour of it. Only one that comes close is the E30 (I'm hoping)...

Ooohhh the choices and decisions!

i have joined in on the copic wave too. i love coloring. i color in memory of my favorite aunt who suddenly passed away in september at the age of 49. we were very close. she was a SAHM who loved to draw and color.
i also like memento markers too. they have a broad tip on one end an fine tip on the other. i bought 3 sets for $3.99 each on clearance and i'm having fun with them too.

Hi!!! I am also a copic addict but so far I only have around 50 markers. My favourite are E50,E00 for skin tones; RV13,RV14 for pinks and BG13,BG15 for blue greens! I have a ton of colours on my waiting list hopefully I'll get them soon

E50 is an awesome skin colour, nice n pale...just like me lol I usually use E51 around the edges on the face n colour it in with E50, then for the cheeks I use the E00 and R20. It's just great.

I have just started my copic supply. I have always used colored pencils and then I received a couple copic markers in a swap and now I'm hooked. I can only get a couple at a time though since they are pricey. Where do you find the copic color wheel?
