One of the last threads I posted on last night was about copic markers, how many you have and your storage.

Well, I have 9 pens and 2 refills. Got them ONLY to color my bind-it-all wires! And, figured they are good to color my Snoopy stamped images. I get CardMaker Magazine and was thumbing through and old one last night while falling asleep and saw the Copic airbrush system.

I woke up this morning dreaming that I was "practicing"! NO NO NO!!! I have most everything needed, except for certain colors of cardstock, etc. and now you're trying to get me hooked on all copic colors!

I thought it was such a funny thing to be dreaming of.

I haven't tried to color silver wires, just the white wires.

The reason I have the 2 copic refills, was strictly to color the wires. You cut your wire the length needed, put in a zip lock bag and sprinkle a few drops of alcohol ink in, close the bag and work the ink around the wire. Do NOT warp the wire! I got overzealous on one and warped it a bit.

The color will NOT be consistent but will be kind of mottley but pretty. I have 2 Copic refills and a set of Tim Holtz alcohol inks. I preferred to buy two colors I loved rather than get the sets with only ONE color I liked.

Anyway, after I got those, I decided I liked just using the pen and running the nib over the wire on the top and sides just as well. Time consuming, but do it while you watch TV or something. I got a primary set at HL with 40% off and a few other colors.

It so happens that those colors will color my Snoopy stamped images, all I need is to get a flesh color for Charlie Brown's face.

Hope this helps!
