Basic Copic Colors -Starter Suggestions

Happy Monday!  I was cleaning up my craft area yesterday and found this chart and decided to have some fun coloring it in.  I can't remember if this was one I shared before or not but here it is.  These are the starter colors that Copic Instructor Colleen Schaan recommends. 

This color palette is a nice set of basic color combinations.  I like to have lots of options when I am trying to find combos to match all the different patterned paper I am hoarding.  I generally start a card by selecting the papers I want to use first and then coloring the image to match and these charts come in handy for that.  I have included a blank copy below that you can probably print and play with. If the blank copy does not print well for you, leave me a comment so that I can try attaching it a different way.

  2. Michelle, How can I find out the lightfastness/colorfastness of specific Copic markers? Thanks, Grace

  3. Oh, I forgot to ask, can Copic Markers be use in conjunction with oil-based pencils, such as Faber-Castell Polychromos? Thanks again, Grace
