Tip of the day: What paper should you use with Copic Markers? I have found through horrible experiences the paper you use makes a difference with your coloring. For over six months I struggle with my inks becoming tacky and streaky. I even went to Maryann Walker, Copic's Product Specialist for answers and tried every trick in the book.. I even took all my Copic's apart and soak the tips in Colorless Blender solution or I replaced them. Since I was using the top of the line paper, no one thought to tell me to try another brand.
Top 3 papers used in the States.
- Gina K 120 lb Luxury Paper:. Heavy, smooth paper
- One Sheet Wonder by Couture Cardstock: Heavy paper, but not as tightly woven as Gina K.
- Cryogen Irredescent or white Cardstock: I love this paper! It is smooth with a little bit of tooth to it. You only need to touch it very lightly to apply color, it blends well, has a glittery sheen when you tip it in the light. Using the colorless blender pen, you can remove any mistake, including red ink on Cryogen. My colors never streak or get tacky since I switched.
