This Week In The Studio


Hello and welcome my Artsy friends. . . so glad you stopped in.

I was very fortunate to be able to get out and do a little supply shopping last week and have been exploring and playing with my new finds.

I don't know if you have had much of a chance to try or use Copic markers.  These are fabulous pens for colouring and blending.  They come in 358 wonderful colours. . . alcohol based ink, permanent, non-toxic and dries acid free.  If you are interested check out their site for more info.

I have started collecting the 'Sketch' markers which are double ended. . . one chiseled end and the other a brush end.  The tips are replaceable and the ink, refillable.  They have drawing pens and if you know me I have many a different type of pen. . . I have a thing you see.

I generally use Pigma Micron pens by Sakura for my ink drawings though I found that they smeared a little on the smooth marker paper when I applied the Copic colour so I am so pleased that Copic has their own pen for fine line work.

So I will be doing a little more experimenting with these markers this week.

I hope you have a fabulous, fun filled week of exploring. . . that's what I'm doing.

  1. I'm so glad you are discussing markers. I would love to work with them, but never know what to buy. I have the Pigma Micron pens, but for color I have been looking for something else.

  2. Oh Susan you would love these markers, though they can be a little pricey. In their defense they are refillable and you can replace the tips. They blend so nicely. I pick up a couple every now and then to add my collection...they have 358 colours to choose from.
