It's New Year's Day – time to start the year out right and get those Thank You notes done!
These delightful birds were colored with Copics – a medium I've had a lot of trouble with over the years. In my view, claims about their blendability simply haven't panned out. Hello – the emperor really is naked, folks: Copics don't blend! However, Debbie Hughes of LimeDoodleDesign.com had a game-changing idea in one of her many excellent videos. She suggested using the Copic Blender pen first and then immediately coloring over with Copics. Voila! Now they blend! And now I'm happily using my Copics every chance I get . . .
