Here's what's on my workdesk today:
(Copic storage units are from Studio 3 Solutions)
I've been doing my annual coloring of a new Copic color chart, getting ready for when those pretty, new 12 Sketch colors arrive (they have begun shipping to retailers!), so I can add those color swatches to my chart! In case you missed it, I have updated my downloadable Copic color chart with the 12 new Sketch colors -- you can find it on my Copic FAQ, Color Charts &Tutorials page of my blog.
Coloring a new chart each year accomplishes two things -- It makes sure I test each of my markers to see if they need refilling AND ensures I have an accurate color chart. Since Copic ink is dye based (in an alcohol solution), the colors *can* fad over time, especially when exposed to a lot of light. Plus, since Copic has added new colors the last two years, I've needed an updated chart each year!
Just a note: I've also updated my Copic Certification page with some tentative locations for the new Intermediate classes. There will only be about 10 Intermediate classes held this first year, so be sure to register to receive email updates if one is scheduled anywhere near you!
I'll be back tomorrow with another new JustRite Stampers March release stamp set!
