What to Expect from your COPIC
Here's some info about the marker that buyers should know...
-They are non-toxic and won’t harm your pet if it gets a hold of it. (I know this from experience. My dog grabbed one of my few orange COPICs and chewed it up. He suffered no side affects aside from the cap he had to pass… I imagine that was uncomfortable…)
-COPICs are relatively fast drying (due to them being alcohol based), and like most markers, it’s best to work one small area at a time with them so that the spot stays wet and workable. If you have a problem staying in one spot for a period of time, then I would NOT recommend COPIC’s… or Prisma… or any other quality marker. You’d probably be best of with Crayola. :/
-Works great with most inks, but be wary, COPICs are NOT to be used with inkjet (printer) ink! They make the ink bleeeeeed. Of course, you want to check on a scrap of paper that your inks are compatible before you ever start a project.
-COPICs have a beautiful water color-like layout of solid and consistent pigment. The soft brush nib is solid joy, and I use that end all the time. I find it much favorable over the Prismas bullet nib.
-COPICs are airbrush compatible. *thumbs up*
-Streaks? Heck no! One of the main reasons I preferred COPIC over Prisma was the almost complete lack of streaking. With the COPIC markers, you can get a HUGE amount of paper one solid color without marker lines or streaks.
-COPICs also have a superior selection of skin tones and earthy tones.
-COPICs are quite comfortable to hold for long periods of time; the shape also allows for easy storage and great control over the marker.
-COPICs blending ability is far superior to any other marker I have ever used. If you plan on doing a lot of blending, forget Prisma, COPIC is the only way to go!
