Merry Christmas,Happy New Year & more on COPIC!

I hope everyone out there had a wonderful Christmas. I still have a few cards to send now for New Years, Ha. We had a bit more snow Christmas day and more to come I am sure but not that record snow we had last week. Yikes
More on Copic Markers
I have had a few requests for actual code numbers for the 12 pen colors I recommend so here goes BTW these are in the Sketch series but some may also be in the Ciao line
black 100
cobalt blue B26 (BLUE)
golden yellow Y17
cardinal R59 (blue red)
nile blue BG45 ( aqua/ blue green)
olive G99
chinese orange YR09 (bright orange)
red violet RV19(Magenta/deep hot pink)
Walnut E59 (rich umber brown)
Iris B79 (deepblue purple)
powder pink YR00 (pale peach)
apple green G14 (bright yellow green)
My choices vary according to what is avaliable at stores and shows,do not ridgedly adhere to these codes they are only suggestions. These are the same choices I would make in paints or any pigments if I was starting fresh.
Also remember Copics blend better on coated paper stocks (slick or smooth surfaces)like pen papers, glossy or MAtteKote (my favorite)
Enjoy !
