Welcome to pre-class!
This intermediate course needs markers and paper – no other supplies! If it’s been a while since you colored with your Copics, you may wish to review the Copic Jumpstart course content – including the introductory videos in the PreClass lesson in that curriculum. You may wish to refill markers and change out ragged nibs before getting started on this course!
(There are no videos in this pre-class lesson, like there are for the full-size classes.)
Students are invited to share on the #autumnscenes hashtag – visit the link on occasion too and see what other students are creating! You’ll learn much from each other. When you post, feel free to list marker substitutions you tried in the captions so your fellow students can get an idea what else to try – however, remember not to share *everything* from class. Invite your friends to come and learn for themselves too!
You may use whatever paper you normally choose for your Copic coloring. In the class, Neenah Solar White (ream, or 25-pack) is used. On slick papers, or really thick papers, some of the techniques may turn out differently due to the way those papers blend.
The colors listed here are the ones used in the lessons – however, if you have a color that’s close, you may well be just fine. You can always order a marker you see employed later. But note that BV0000, BV000, and BV00 are all listed here – they will help with getting a progression of blue-violet colors, so all three are recommended, even though you may come up with a compromise result while missing one of them.
*Two colors are not linked in these color grids: Y0000 and BV20. The Y0000 is used in one instance that can be skipped, and the BV20 looks like a slightly bluer version of a BV000. Both would help in the last lesson, but are not required.
