Copics 1st Attempt - Hanglar "hÄnglabyk"


Ok, ok, so I said that I wasn't going to post again until after my holiday but my new Copic Sketch Markers arrived today and I had to try them out! Lots of practicing to do as this is the first time I have ever used them. This image is Hanglar "hÄnglabyk". The papers are Laura Ashley and can be purchased here. The bloom is from my kind friend Lim.

Right, now off to sign my travellers cheques, oh yes and have a little blog hop!
Hugs,



UPDATE Wed 30th April

I have received a few emails today with regards to my copics. I purchased them from Ebay. The set I ordered was set D which is 72 Copic Sketch Markers. I chose Sketch Copics as I prefer to use the brush tip. This is great for fine detail.

The ink I use is Brilliance Graphite Black. Again I am using the Concord card - (see my below Prisma post for link). I am no expert but these are my own personal preferences.

Here are the colours I used for this project - sorry the picture is so grainy.

Please don't hesitate to email me if you have any other questions and my address can be found on the right hand side. x
