Copic Marker Paper Help.

Posted by on Jan. 15, 2012 at 10:08 PM

I recently was given a few sets of copic caio markers for Christmas and my b-day. I went out and bought marker paper, but apparently I didn't get the right kind because the colors are bleeding way too much. Does anyone have experience with copic markers? What type of paper do you use?

I googled the type of marker and since they are alcohol based markers it looks like there is special paper, not just market paper but "alcohol marker" paper.

I tried to google it too before I went out and bought the paper, but I just couldn't find anything other than "marker paper". Gah. At least that's additional info. Thank you!

I found a listing for the paper on that company's web site, it said it gave crisp lines. I don't use this type of marker so hopefully someone who does can give you some pointers.

I don't know that you have to use a certain paper with those copics.  Are you trying to color a stamped image?  I know a lot of gals use memento ink to stamp their image and than color with copics.  You should check out stampingtv.com and watch at least a few videos there.

Hi! Lol No, not coloring a stamped image. I've been transferring drawings I drew in the past so I can color them, and it's bleeding like crazy. I guess I could try using cardstock? I know those holds stamps well.
