Creative Chat–Copic Storage!


Hi everyone,

It’s time for the MFT Creative Chat. The My Favorite Things Design Team Creative Chat is a monthly feature, where we are challenged to explore our creative spaces and share valuable organizational methods, tools, and shopping strategies with you. You’ll be able to peek into our creative spaces, ask questions, and share your own ideas in the MFT Forum. This month, we were asked the following questions.

Show us how you store your Copic Markers.

Any tips on special techniques you use with Copic Markers?

Any tips on color-matching your Copic markers to card stock or patterned paper?

Any favorite color combinations you use: skin, hair, shading etc?

My copics would have to be one of the most used tools that I have and definitely my preferred option for coloring. As in previous months I have created a video to show you how I store my copic markers.


As promised in my video I am including a close up of skin and hair colors that I had in my book I keep for coloring ideas so you can see them better.
