HEX CHARTS

 

I created the hex chart system first for Copic markers – ironically out of a rather lazy attitude! I wanted to continue my art without stopping to re-ink pens, so I scribbled colors next to each other to see what was the closest I could get away with. Then needed to sort all those scraps into something I could relocate….and a chart was born.

That led to creating charts for Prismacolor, Polychromos, and Luminance Pencils, too! They’re for sale so everyone can skip the pain I went through.

I can’t afford all the brands though…I need full sets to make charts. Sorry, no watercolor media since few printers can print with waterproof ink.

Let’s get creative…
