Who are the copies?

In fact, this is not a “who”, but a “what”. Copics – Japanese markers that allow you to achieve very interesting results in the drawing. They are intended more for artists and designers than for children, which clearly confirms their price.
If you decide to try to draw with copies, you will have to fork out: one marker stands like a whole set of simple children’s felt-tip pens. Nevertheless, many amateurs and professionals use copies, because it is really a very interesting tool.

Benefits
The main difference between such a marker is that it very “gives” ink to the paper (sometimes even until it gets wet). In addition, the copies allow you to gain color by applying neat layers on top of each other. This helps create smooth transitions that are difficult to achieve with conventional felt-tip pens and markers. With copies, you can even create glaze, like watercolor.
Kopiki – markers on alcohol and have the corresponding smell and properties. But they quickly dry on paper and can be refilled (ink sold separately), as well as change the worn out tips. In addition, copies are completely non-toxic and safe when used properly.

 

The copy box has a huge palette of colors – 214 colors – but I want to buy everything at once! Manufacturers, of course, took care of the production of special paper for their markers and recommend drawing on it. They say that it will be less paint used on it. Special stands for storing sets of copies are also available.

Copies are divided into different series: there are copies for sketches, there are wide ones for filling with color, there are liners, there are copies for airbrushing, and even kits for beginners. You can buy all this disgrace both in sets and individually.

disadvantages
The lack of copies is that they fade in the light, so you should draw them in albums or put them in a folder, rather than hang the pictures they made on the wall. Well, it’s not so easy to work with them – you have to adapt.
