Looking to get my own set, I knew I wanted the Sketch markers, but the different sets available can make your head spin. Having used the markers, I now knew that you could do without a great many of the colors. The trouble was which set to buy which offered a good range, and some blending potential.
There does not seem to be any rhyme or reason behind the color choices in the many, MANY sets, and several colors are duplicated. The Limited Edition set is the one with the best range of shading colors in the most varied palette. I added the Skin Tones set, Sketching Greys, and Earth Essentials, and wound up with only one duplicate (E18 Copper).
= Differences between LE and Standard Sketch =
* The LE set has the brush point, and a fine point nib that replaces the standard Sketch chisel point
* The LE set has black barrels
* The LE Set has a palette of Sketch color combinations not available in any other set
* 24 of the LE colors are from the Sketch D (72) set, and 12 from the Sketch E (72) set. If you have either of those already, you might want to pick a set other than the LE to expand your color choices.
If you can buy only one set of Copics, this should be it. This is an excellent foundation to which you can add individual sketch markers or 3 and 6 piece blending sets to.
= UPDATE - REFILLING THE LE MARKERS =
If you read the refill instructions for using Copic Markers Various Ink, you'll find methods for refilling by:
- Using the booster needle (not included) inserted along the side of a chisel end
- Dripping ink on the chisel end of a marker
- Removing the non-brush tip end of a marker (hint - don't remove the brush end unless you mean to replace it!)
For those who are wondering, yes - you can use the drip method on the brush end of a marker, since the LE Sketch has no chisel end. I didn't have the tool for removing the fine point, so that's what I did. Just go slowly so that the brush nib has enough time to absorb the drops before adding another.
UPDATE-27 Oct 2013
There are now 12 piece sets available I have noticed at the online Blick arts website(maybe other online shops as well, haven't checked). Perfect if you aren't able to afford or don't need the 36 piece set but still want a few of these special edition markers. The colors in the 12 piece sets are the same as in the 36 piece sets, just divided up into sets A,B, & C for a little over $60/ea
I am not a professional artist, but I have done quite a bit of art work for my enjoyment in different mediums. Here are some details that I have collected that might be helpful to the reader:
~ Sketch, Regular and Ciao Markers
The Copic Sketch markers are comprised of Super Brush Point and regular chisel point. The Copic Markers are comprised of regular chisel point and fine point nibs. The Ciao Markers are the same as Copic Sketch Markers, except have a smaller barrel; great for the talented smaller hand artist.
~ Permanent Ink and Nibs
These are permanent inks. They are alcohol based but do not have a lot of smell to them. All markers are refillable. All the nibs are also replaceable.
~ Palette Colors
Palette Set A is made up of a good round of colors. Palette Set C is made up of a round colors in hues slightly lighter than Set A. Palette Set B is made up of newer colors along with specific flesh tones, cool to neutral to warm grays, plus a colorless blender marker. The available colors are similar in hue as traditional water color or oil colors such as vermillion, prussian blue, ochre, white, black, etc. There are also colors named lipstick red, agate, mistletoe, etc. There are no repeated colors in these three sets. All in all you will not want for more colors. And if you do want more there is always palette Set D (combined sets of EX 12-marker series) and Set E (brighter colors - including florescent colors).
I have found any smooth heavier weight paper (such as card stock or, even better, cover stock) works the best; 67# and up. In Japan they use what is called comic book paper, which is expensive and was made just for this style of markers. Lighter weight papers (like coloring books) will work fine but the paper will tend to absorb more ink and bleed through (though those bleed through designs are also interesting). I suggest 'flicking' the color on lighter weight papers, so not too much ink is unnecessarily used.
These markers are exceptionally known for their blending capacity. The better the paper, the better the blending. On heavier paper the ink does not completely penetrate the paper and that is what makes these markers the best and worth the cost. The blender marker is not always needed; three close color hues will blend together easily. Takes a little practice but that can be part of the fun. The blender marker can be used to correct small mistakes or to smooth out a hard edge of a color blending into another color. Can be used in smooth strokes or stippling method, adding a textured look.
Well, we gotta show them off and make these a center piece on our art or work table! I went for the natural look and purchased Marker Holder, Side-by-Side for the Sketch Markers. Perfect set up! All the markers should be stored laying flat so that ink is readily available for each nib. NOTE: The Side-by-Side organizer will not hold the Regular Markers. For the Regular Markers I purchased the Marker Holder, Stacked
~ Refilling and Replacing Nibs
The capacity to refill Copic markers is what makes them not only ecological (other markers, when empty go in the garbage) but just down right economical in the long run. Refilling is super easy with a reusable Copic needle like filler (separate purchase) that screws onto the top of the refill bottle. Each refill bottle holds enough marker color to refill each marker 8-10 times!! Each marker refill bottle costs about $5.00. Changing out a nib is also super easy (sold separately) by just grabbing the nib and pulling it out. If you don't want to get marker color on your fingers, there are Copic tweezers that can be used for grabbing the nib and pulling it out.
These Amazon offerings are competitively priced with Blick Art, MarkerPop.com, etc. I've not found them cheaper anywhere else. The reason for this is that these are made and shipped to all USA sellers from Japan and the price is fixed as far as I can tell. But check for sales and eBay offers.
~~~ Have Fun
These are exceptional markers to have fun with whether you are a professional or at-home crafter. Go For It! Before you purchase check out the many youtube videos made by Copic Marker fans for more information and inspiration. Viewing those videos changed me from "I want to have." to "I got to have." Obviously, I am very pleased with this purchase.
See some of the mandalas I have worked with on my profile page 'images' to see some examples of what these markers can do.
If you like Prismacolor - you will like these too.
