Welcome to a VERY exciting day for me…I’m finally releasing my “baby” into the world: my Hex Color Chart for Copic Markers, I designed to show the visual color relationship between the markers. I’m celebrating with a Video Hop and invited a few friends to join in the fun and show you some ways they’ll be using their charts.
NOTE: Copic has not added any colors since 2012, so the chart has not changed in all this time.
Hex Color Chart for Copic Markers
For years, I’ve wanted to have a chart that shows me how colors compare to each other. In the downloadable charts that have been in use for so long, the numerical order kept the light tints separated from each other so they aren’t easily comparable. Same with the darks, etc. So I began the odyssey of creating a chart organized by visual color relationships instead. In the video below, I talk about what it took to get it here…please give it a like and help justify the many hours of labor to get this puppy done!
When purchasing the Hex Chart Bundle, you’ll receive a link in your receipt to download the zip file right away. There are two pdfs inside, one is blank, to print in black and white on your Copic-friendly paper.
The other is in color, but remember, it won’t be particularly accurate for color. But it’ll be enough to give you an idea what some of the colors are that you’re missing. You can always re-watch the video above or any of these in the video hop as well, since the color on that looks fairly good; just pause the video when it shows the color section you want to view.
There are also hex charts you can buy for a few Colored Pencils too – and a bunch of free swatch charts and more over on this page.
Please know the hex chart isn’t a way to become a bazillionaire – but it does help to keep a roof over my head with all of us kicking in just a few dollars for a super helpful chart! If you don’t want to pay for one, by all means goo to Sharon’s blog for free charts – the rectangular one- and two-page charts, and lots more resources.

Wow! Thank you so much for creating this chart. It will be a huge help when choosing colors and seeing how they all relate to each other. I can’t imagine the work it took, so thank you, again!
Wow, just downloaded the chart and can’t wait to begin filling it in! What a great tool for us Copic colorists!
Sandy, I just completed coloring my new Hex Chart and I am blown away! When I printed out the colored chart, my thoughts were: “How pretty!” After coloring my own in, I am amazed at the relationships between the different color groups! I understood intellectually the numbering system, but have a whole new understanding now. Thank you for the many hours of work you put into this. It shows not only your Copic knowledge, but an amazing ability to spatially relate all the different color groups. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
Awesome chart Sandy! I purchased and ready to start coloring 😉
Oh my goodnesses! THANK YOU for all the very hard work and thought that went into this! AND thanks so much for the wonderful chance to win!
Just beginning 2 collect copics. Only have 2 so far. But am looking forward 2 building
Great chart, thank you!
Thanks so much for sharing all your hard work! And what a beautiful (and useful) piece of art as a bonus! Mine is purchased – hop, hop, hop I go!
Congrats. Thank you for all the work you put into this.
What a really brilliant idea, love it! Off to buy it and leave some love on the blog hop!! Many thanks Sandy!
Wow! What a helpful tool! I am a bloody beginner and so I am very glad about your hex chart! It helps me a lot, more than the ordinary hand color chart from Copics.. Well done Sandy! Hugs, Tina
Amazing chart, Sandy! Congratulations on following it through to the finish–all those HOURS! I know I will use different combinations than I have in the past just from looking at the video. It’s inspirational! 😉
I have a suggestion that is no doubt a day late and dollar short, but it may help you revise future charts when more colors are added or whatever. Use a hex punch (I have a one inch one) and then rearrange them til you like it. You could put a little tacky glue or a magnet on the back of each so they would stay where you put them and then take pictures as you go along. Also was thinking you could color an A2 or other size piece of Neenah solar white with each color and then you could punch out more than one without having to color each individually.
Again, super-wonderful job. Thank you!
Thank you so much for all the work on this great product! I just printed mine and can’t wait to use it!
I’m looking forward to coloring in my chart this afternoon. I have quite a few Copics but I’m wondering how many are close in color. I’ll find out soon. Thanks for all of your hard work.
Love the chart, such a useful tool. Thank you.
WoW, what a great chart….love it
Wow! What I great tool. I’ve often struggled comparing colors on the other charts, so this chart will be very useful.
Wow! That’s a lot of work! Thanks for this wonderful “at a glance” chart.
Woohoo…thanks so much, Sandy!!! You are a genius! I LOVE copics and will use this chart often!
Sandy, just purchased your Hex Chart and filled it up. I absolutely love this. Thank you so much for making this baby for us to use…absolutely a must have!
This chart is fabulous! Can’t wait to color it in! Thank you so much Sandy for your persistence and love for copics in completing this chart to share with all of us!
Thanks a million for bringing this to the community. I hope you sell a million.
And thanks for the immediate response when I had trouble with the download.
I’m revved up again to color with Copics after seeing my colored Hex chart. And after seeing your completed chart I know exactly which colors I need. I’m going shopping now.
This chart is unique and I love the concept!!! Can’t wait to see where all my markers fall. I think it will help me determine which colors might be a good option if I were buying more.
Absolutely amazing…really shows the color range of Copics. Still have Copic markers on my wish list, so will be needing this work of (he)art someday. Thanks for sharing this and for sponsoring the blog hop and giveaways, too!
Wow, I can’t imagine the time you spent creating this chart. Thank you so much. I know I will get much use from it and look forward to your future videos regarding its use. Thanks again!
Thanks for this! SO amazing. I can’t wait to start filling it in.
Thanks, Sandy! I only have a few Copics, but I am buying one or two at a time – slowly, slowly – and having a visual chart to work with as I choose the next colours is so useful! Currently all my colours are very lonely on my chart, they need some close friends, lol!
Congrats on getting it done!
Such a great resource! Going to help greatly with adding to my copic collection.
Looking forward to starting my new adventure in Copics with you. Thanks for the inspiration and Nudge!
Your new chart is awesome! I love it simply for the hexagons, but the functionality of it is great as well! Well done!
You are so inspiring, Sandy! Thanks so much for these charts! Can’t wait to get coloring!
Oh my goodness what a beautiful and useful tool. I don’t own very many copics but my trusty few color combos.
I’ve finished hopping. I would say that your baby has been very well received. I haven’t been able to download the file you sent me Tuesday night. My Wednesday doctor appointment took most of the day and then my daughter needed me to babysit on Thursday. I’m going to go download it as soon as I’m done here. I can’t wait! Your hard work is very much appreciated.
Thanks, Sandy! This chart is so neat! I’ll be back after I get paid on Monday to purchase my chart 🙂
It would be so neat to win a hand-colored one from you since you have ALL the colors.
I do have a question for you: What paper did you use for your hand-colored charts?
Fun fun fun! and wow…you really changed your page! Best of luck, Victoria
Thanks for the chance to win and for creating this awesome chart!
Thank you, SANDY!! You have such a wonderful giving spirit!! And such a talent!! I teach card making at our lss and this is going to help me so much! I love coloring with my Copics they make me feel like an artist, even though I can only draw stick figures! (lol) but I can color and if I go out of the lines I have the Colorless Blender!! God bless!!
Oh my, Sandy, what an amazig piece of work! I’ve just completed Jennifer McGuire’s ink swatches with the pads I’ve got at home. It took me two weeks to complete them and after sorting them according to color groups I was completely done. If I had done what you’ve done here I think it would have killed me in already one third of the time. This chart and your effort makes me absolutely speechless. Your’re just brilliant! Thank you so much.
Sandy, Thanks so much for all your hard work. This is just great.
I have a slow satellite internet connection so never get through a whole blog before I get tired of the long delays but you had such spectacular ladies for this blog hop, I actually visited every one of them. Awesome launch for your Hex chart. I started coloring mine and I’m amazed how it gives me a whole new perspective on my Copics
Okay talented lady, you out did yourself again, this is a genius idea and it will help me use the copics I have, God only knows I need help using colors that work together. Thanks, for all you hard work to help us improve our coloring.
Just purchased the Hex Chart, can’t wait to start coloring! This is such a great idea for keeping my Copics in a visual way:-) Thank you!
Sandy this is Brilliant! This will help me so much in choosing colors. I colored in my chart with the markers I have and now I am seeing them in a completely different way. Thank you so much for the hard work and effort!
Awesome chart and thanks for the chance to win!
Sounds like a ton of work went into this chart
This Hex Chart is Fabulous! Thank You so much for developing it.
Ok, so I don’t know if I’m leaving my comment in the right place, hehe. But I am so exctied to try the Hex Chart! You are amazing Sandy! I keep learning more and more and I get so excited when I get a notification that you have uploaded another video! Bought the Hex Bundle and am getting ready to print it on my Copic Quality paper!
