I also <3 COPICS (27 January 2012)
Man, they are so worth the investment, IF you get them here on major sale. I love 'em, esp the pastel like colors, so I try to get three close together in number in all the color groups. The darkest of the colors are hard for me to blend out, even if I just do a couple strokes at a time. But the lighter colors? Yes! Maybe when I learn more, the darker ones won't intimidate me so much (wink)!
