One of my newest favourite blog finds is Deb Neerman’s Paper, Ink Scissors & Stamps ( Great name!) , She has an excellent article that compares trendy
with Prismacolor Premier pencil crayons and OMS method. Note- The
Copic Ciao Markers
are the same in every ways as the more expensive
Copic Sketch Markers
one- except they are smaller and easier to manage. I prefer this size and almost half the price.
Deb sounds a lot like me in that she seems to have to EVERYTHING of something. I have a huge collection of Prismacolor pencils and some other high quality brands like Koh-i-noor pigment pencils.
I just about had a heart attack when I first heard about Copic markers. Why – I do NOT want another things to collect and spend money on.
Deb has given me a bit of relief- she does a very thorough comparison of the the Copic markers and pencil crayons. I will let you be the judge- but I was quite surprised.
After reading her comparisons “test” i was able to talk myself out of buying them.. well buying them ALL. I suspect I will cave in a buy a few more 🙂
