I have to say that I’ve always been pretty intimidated to try coloring with Copic markers. I didn’t quite understand how they worked, and I wasn’t sure why a set of markers cost so much more than my go-to Crayola markers. Well, after watching this Copic Markers Beginner’s Online Class, I have to say that I’m adding Copic markers to my wish list this year!
With the help of Copic certified instructor and designer Jennifer Dove, I learned all kinds of helpful tips and techniques for using Copic markers. From simple tutorials on how to read the number system to helpful techniques to try when you’re blending colors, this online class is a great intro into using these amazing crafting markers.
Best of all, we’re giving one lucky winner the chance to win this online class! Scroll on down for all the info!
One thing I was surprised to learn about Copic markers was that you never have to throw them away! The tips can be replaced if they get damaged and all the markers are refillable…so Copics are a great investment for those who love to color. They’re also waterproof on all paper types and acid free, so there’s no risk of chemicals or harmful fumes when you’re having fun with your markers. Another great thing about these markers is that they’re fantastic for blending. Working almost like watercolors, Copic markers allow you to take your cards, illustrations, and designs to a whole new level…giving you a real-life look to your art with a few simple strokes of your marker. And with more than 200 colors to play with, there’s absolutely nothing you can’t do with these amazing marker collections. Don’t believe me? Take a look at these awesome projects and tutorials!
