Colr Me Copic Team - Meet Traci!

Traci's (aka WickedPixie)

I decided to try this whole "alcohol marker thing" around a year and a half ago and I started with Prismacolor Markers because I could get them at the local craft store using a coupon. When I realized how much I loved coloring with markers I made the investment in Copics because of the refill capabilities and I love the brush like nib! I used to paint with watercolors and I feel like I can get a similar look (although more intense) without the messiness by using Copics.

I am not Copic certified and have not taken any classes. I have spent a lot of time studying other peoples work with copics, and I get so much out of seeing what colors they used so I always make sure I list the colors I use on my cards. I really love the feeling of bringing an image to life just by coloring!

Color Me Copic Team - Meet Rachel!

Rachel (AKA ~Rach)
Blog: The Paper Crafting Place

I was introduced to Copics in July/August of 2009 and was hooked right away! I used to use Prismacolor pencils before but nothing compares to the eye-popping colors that you can get using Copics, I love them because they really make an image come to life. 

I don't have any formal classes or training, it's all self taught so I really consider every piece I color to be practice.  I've learned most of what I have by imitating other people's coloring that I love, by watching some great tutorials on YouTube and by asking lots of questions.  My hope is that this site will help all of you by having a bit of everything all in one place!

Color Me Copic Team - Meet Amy!


I first got serious about Copics just over a year ago and began searching the internet for all the information I could get on them before finally committing to an actual purchase. As soon as I received my first order and started playing around with them, I was hooked! I've never taken any Copic classes and I'm not certified, everything I know comes from reading other blogs and through trial and error. I love experimenting with different color combinations and feel like I'm always learning something new when it comes to these fantastic, fun and highly addictive markers. ;)
