Secondly, I am officially a Certified Copic Designer! I took the full day class today in Toronto (actually Brampton), and it was great! Marianne Walker (by the way, she has a very popular blog called I Like Markers) showed us several different things. First, she talked about the types of paper and ink we should be using. Then, she talked about all the different types of markers Copic makes. She showed us several techniques of colouring and blending, and she showed us how to use our Colorless Blender for blending and for special effects. At the end, we got to use the airbrushing system (uh oh, I'm in trouble - it's definitely on the list).
Below is a shot of my collection to this point. This is including the markers I already had, and the few that we received with our class today (We received 2 Sketch markers, 2 original Copic markers, 1 Various Ink Refill, 2 multiliners, a Ciao Colorless Blender, a Copic Wide marker, and an Atyou Spica glitter pen).
I took a picture of one of my scrap sheets to show you the kinds of things we were doing.
