Last week I held a Copic marker in my own hand for the very first time. It was sleek, it was smooth, it was oh-so-alluring, and, at $8 bucks a pop, it was freakishly intimidating. After a two-hour class in grey intensities, blending and shading techniques (of which I have yet to grasp still), I succeeded in coloring a tulip. Yes, "a" tulip. Just one. . .
I'll let you do the math here. One tulip, FIVE markers. . .
After a two-hour class and turning up my nose at my own coloring skills (or seemingly lack thereof), Susan, the instructor, saw my frustrations and gently touched my shoulder exclaming "Crystal, my dear, there are no Copic police."
Understood. To each his (or her) own when it comes to coloring. . .
However, at $8 bucks a pop, that in and of itself, SHOULD be a Copic crime!
