Copic Island Time Preclass

Welcome to the preclass lesson – all about supplies! If you’ve taken Copic classes here, you may well have the supplies you need…primarily markers and paper! Here’s a picture of the markers to gather up. Remember, as always you can substitute for other colors that are close!

Aside from your favorite Copic paper, you’ll likely want to have 1 sky-colored blue reinker. You’ll learn a cool way to make a sky with puffy clouds, perfect for a great day in the islands! I will be using B21, though others will work; we’ll be trying out some colors you might not be used to for skies, and I dare you to give them a try. (You’re welcome to disagree with them after that!)

  • I get my markers and refills from either Ellen Hutson, a crafty retailer, or Blick, an art retailer.
  • The paper I use in class is Neenah Cardstock, Solar White:• 25pk or a ream of  250pk
  • Then there’s the ubiquitous white pen – my favorite is the Signo UniBall (available at Ellen Hutson, Blick, Amazon) but use what works for you!
  • Stamps are not needed for this class, we’ll make backgrounds on a blank piece of paper. There are samples in the lessons that use stamps, and there will be links to those sets if you decide you want it – but none will be needed to get the most out of this class.

Shall we get started?

You absolutely are encouraged to post and gift your creations made with these techniques, of course! Please DO make your own designs with any techniques you learn here, adapt these lessons, and develop your own style. I love to see students making strides and personalizing lessons! Tag me on Instagram, I’d love to see what you’re making!
