Help Please!!!

I have seen on lots of peoples blogs different mediums for colouring..I have heard about Copics can someone please tell me the difference between the versions of Copics and whether they are any good. I have also heard people talking about Prismacolours - again any help would be great. Currently I use watercolour pencils and Marvey Le Plumme Pens :):)

Hi Han oh isn't is ever so confusing!!! I don't know about copice like you I use a mixture of le Plume and whisper.I have been using water colours pencils, but have just invested in some Faber Castell polchromos which are high pigment and can be used with sansodor. You do need a very good quality smooth card stock for it to work well. Again after using several I have found this Bristol Board by Windsor and Newton ( only discovered yesterday) but working well so far!! Bet your more confused now sorry!! Sue:o)

Just treated myself to some Prismas as I only had a few pencils. I usually use Brushables and Marvy however, wanted something that blended better. Just got some Sansodor today so hope to have a play with them soon. Can you e-mail me your address details so I can send you the PIF candy?

Hi Han. Thanks for the message on my blog, as you say you are in Frimley, do you belong to any clubs? Great Blog site, some fantastic cards.

I don't use any of those-although I heard they are both great.
I use re-inkers or just push down the top of the pad and pick up ink with blender pen.
I also use the watercolor crayons a lot too. you can either scribble right on your paper on pick up color off end with aquapainter or blender pen depending how light or dark you want your color.

Hi Han, I use tombow watercolour pens, and scribble onto acetate with them first and pick the colour up with my waterbrush pen and build the colour up. I would love the copics, but they are expensive and my pens were near £3 each and I have over 30, so maybe when they start running out I shall get copics. There is so much on the market, I can see why you are asking for help :)
