Oh! The last 2 days I spent entirely too much money on Copic Markers! I bought a pile of refills and colours I needed from Opus, then went to my Mums on Saturday looking for a new storage block for my new markers and the man at Country Lane crafts recognized me and said that he had the new 12 colours in stock behind the counter if I wanted to look! (of course!)
Me and another woman basically pillaged his pile, and he's probably completely out now, LOL!
They're wonderful colours!
Okay, I'm having an issue with my markers I've never experienced before, I'm wondering if anyone else has had this experience!
On my sketch markers some of them are lighter on one end than the other. as if the ink is settling on one side. The other side is still juicy but a more diluted colours like all the colourless part of the solution is gong to one end and all the dye is going to the other.
I've always stored my markers in the hard cases. I have them standing on end slightly leaned back. I'm convinced it's something I've done or else it wouldn't affect them so randomly, or the internet would have some discussion on it. I've googled my heart out and can't find anything.
I've contacted Copic and I'm just waiting on a reply. Crazy isn't it?! I can't figure it out! I've got the new swatch book now so I'm not sure if I should continue filling it out as I don't know if it's actually accurate colour I'm getting from my markers just now :P
Oh well, It's a little frustrating but I'm confident they'll come up with a solution over at Copic.
I'm going to be working on Wrapping up my Copic class today, as well as some Art Work.
Update: Yes it was fixed, and NO it was not the pressure in the marker. That's the first thing everyone said, but if it was that I wouldn't have posted, as it's the first thing you basically learn about markers... LOL.
Although not 100% sure of the cause, SHAKING the marker, then scribbling with the light end until it came to the right colour, or refilling the marker again fixed it.
