Choosing Copic Colors ft Hex Chart, Newtons Nook

Welcome to my stop on the Newton’s Nook “Deck the Halls with Inky Paws” Bloghop! I’m a big fan of foxes….so when I saw the Fox Hollow set, I knew that would be my set of choice for this hop. Thanks to Newton’s Nook for sending the stamps!

Choosing Copic Colors

Lots of Copic colorists, whether experienced or brand new, struggle with picking Copic colors. Earlier this year I posted my Hex Chart for sale – and have been amazed at the feedback from so many about it! I wasn’t expecting it to be that helpful, but I’m delighted that lots of folks are having an easier time choosing colors.

The hex chart comes with a fully colored pdf to print, and a black and white one for you to color with the markers you have. On the chart you can see colors in visual relation to each other…and sometimes you’ll suddenly see blending combos that you hadn’t thought of before. The chart puts colors next to the colors closest to them – so you want to pick markers a few steps away from each other to have enough contrast between the colors. Or, if you’re like me and don’t want to get up off the sofa to reink a pen, pick a color right next door that’s an adequate replacement! ūüôā Without further ado- let’s look at coloring the fox, as well as a new-for-me sky combo of colors.¬†Watch the video below, or click HERE to watch in HD on YouTube!
