  • Copics, Promarkers, or other?

    I'm still new to cards, and have been looking around all the amazing blogs for some inspiration of techniques. I've seen some really lovely stamped images that people colour in - they look amazing, and apparently are coloured with copics or promarkers? Can anyone tell me what the difference is, what is preferred etc?
    I have invested in some lovely glaze pens by Sakura, and want something similarly lovely. I assume these pens are different from regular felt tips, but am not sure how?

    My cards up until recently have been really dull, I thought colouring in stamps would look trashy, but it's something I'd love to try!

    Thanks!

    Hi, i'm just starting to colour the die cuts/printouts for my cards and am awaiting delivery of a packet of Promarkers, the reason i went for these was mainly the price as Copics are expensive and a lot of members use Promarkers and reccomend them.
    Plus i didn't want to jump in at the deep end and get the dearer ones as i'm just starting to try colouring.


    Hope this helps

      Thanks, will probably do the same! Where did you get your promarkers?

        Im another promarker fan, it is so relaxing just sitting with a tray on your lap in front of the tv, colouring in stamped images / digistamps.

        I usually get mine direct from the letraset website, as then I can buy just the colours i want / need.

        Tip if you get some - keep a note of which ones you have by marking them off on the little leaflet you get with them, it really makes it easier when you're deciding which new colours to get!

            Cowling & Wilcox art suppliers often do great deals on promarker sets

                Is there a special way to use them, so that you dont get streaks when colouring block colours?
