Patti, please let me know the stamp of your choice and I will send it out to you right away! Congratulations!
Now...more about Copic Markers!
Thank you for the overwhelming response to my videos on Copic markers. You can find my past videos at the link above, and I hope to contribute more as I go along. I really hope to impress on everyone that the only thing scary about these markers is their price. They are soooo fun to use. With all that being said, I do know of a website that I highly recommend that has an excellent price and the best customer service I have ever seen. (I am not mentioning the name of another well-known store that claims an ever lower price but my experience with their lousy customer service made me cancel an order with them...no, I won't mention them by name. Seize the Day!)
OOzak had my order to me in one and a half days! I was so surprised and happy! When I ordered, Copic sketch markers were $4.15 each with a minimum $50 order (not hard to do). I thought to be helpful, I would also recommend some colors that I think go well together for basic shading.
Flesh = E000, E00, E11
Denim = B97, B95, B91
Red = R29, R27, R24, R22
Pink = R39, R85, R83, R81 (you can eliminate R39)
Orange = YR00, YR12, YR16, YR18
Green = G99, YG63, G40
Lavender = V000, V12, V15, V17
These are just a few suggestions. Usually you can get away with only buying 2 shades...a light and a dark within the same group. (the 3rd in the middle is even better if you can manage to get it too) but using the blending tricks you can create that third color with some practise. But, enough about Copics. (for this time, anyway!)
