Copic Colouring on Super Smooth White Card0
I really love using my Copic markers when making cards and I was thrilled when I realised that Papermilldirect's White Card Super Smooth 250gsm and White Card Super Smooth 300gsm is great for using your copic markers on. A lot of cardstock is not suitable for these markers as they often bleed making the image run and this can ruin your project.
To get started on your copic colouring you will need:
To start with use your preferred choice of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm or White Card Super Smooth 300gsm. Stamp your image and choose which colours you want to colour the image in with. I usually start with the darkest marker and work my way up to the lightest colour.
Depending on your colour you will need to go over the colours to make sure that they blend. You can add as many colours as you like to your image or just a few its completely up to you.
Once your image is finished you can add extra details to your image. You may like to add fur if colouring an animal or add extra shading by using a darker colour.
The most important part is to blend your copics. If you only have a few markers this is still possible you will just need to blend the colours a little bit more. You can even use colouring pencils to add details on top of your copic colouring.
I use the White Card Super Smooth 250gsm and White Card Super Smooth 300gsm on nearly all my colouring projects. Keep in mind if you have an image that is very detailed to cut out use the White Card Super Smooth 250gsm as it may be better as its easier to cut with scissors. This card is also great for any other alcohol markers that you may have. It works great with Promarkers too.
