another enjoyable copic cafe...we laughed A LOT, colored and chatted...we swapped images and made a cute lil' tag...
i just love that maya road bingo card stamp...and that unity ice-cream cone is just stinkin' adorable!
i also had some card kits for the ladies to buy if they needed a little something to work on...pictures tomorrow!!!
as promised...here is my list of favorite copics...
IF i was stranded on a desert island...and could ONLY have 60 markers...these are them...pretty much a well rounded assortment that covers both bright and muted for most of my basic coloring...a starting point...cause we all know, i want them all...just cause i love them so...
i am breaking them into groups for blending purposes...they start on the left of the color chart and move down & right...
V01, V12, V15 (lilac)
V91, V95 (muted lilac)
RV10, RV11, RV34 (muted pink)
R81, R83, R85 (basic pink)
R20, R22, R24, R37 (peach into muted red)
R29, R59 (red, red)
YR14, YR 15 (orange) yes, the 15 is the lighter shade!
Y13, Y15 (yellow)
Y11, Y21, YR23 (muted yellow) yep, i know i don't follow my own blending family rules...and, sometimes, i color outside the lines!!!
YG41, YG45 (vintage green)
YG63, YG67 (basic green)
YG93, YG99 (olive green)
G40, G12, G14 (grassy green)
G24, G28 (another basic, darker combo)
BG11, BG13 (turquoise)
BG15, BG09 (teal)
BG72, BG75 (muted blue green)
B21, B23 (blue)
B95, B97 (muted blue)
E00, E11 (for flesh...caucasian)
E13, E15 (for terra cotta...as in flower pots)
E35 (what i use to 'vintage-fy' pearls, resin, rhinestones, buttons, etc.)
E41, E43 (ivory)
E55, E57, E59 (basic brown)
C1, C3 (cool gray)
T3, T6, T9 (muted gray) how i make black things look black with depth
W1 (my 'go-to' shader)
okay...now that you see the 60 markers...a disclaimer...they are MY favorites, this does not mean they will be anyone else's!!! i love green...and pink...so there are lots of those...and, you will notice not a lot of light shades...that's cause this is the 'top 60'...i use a lot of the lighter shades (especially to airbrush) but we are talking about my 'i can't live without' colors...
i ONLY have 180 markers...only...my collection grows by a marker here and there and i discover new favorites (E41 being a recent passion) and so will you!!!
i hope this helps those that asked for it!!!
happy coloring peeps!
