Rumors and Prizes

I want to thank everyone who has participated in the giveaways this week. You still have through tonite to enter my giveaway by making a post here.

If you want a chance to come to the Salt Lake City Certification on June 11th you can send an e-mail to ilikemarkers@gmail.com (the odds of winning are pretty good right now, so don't hesitate). Click here for more details.

Rumors:
You may have heard rumors on the internet this Spring about new colors coming from Copic.

The rumors are true and confirmed!!
Copic is coming out with 12 new colors, available in Sketch and Various ink only. This will bring the total to a whopping 334 colors of markers available. Wow! That's a lot of choices.

They are NOT available for purchase...(yet)...just keep reading...

The fabulous new colors are:
COPIC Sketch BV0000 Pale Thistle
COPIC Sketch V0000 Rose Quartz
COPIC Sketch RV0000 Evening Primrose
COPIC Sketch R0000 Pink Beryl
COPIC Sketch YR0000 Pale Chiffon
COPIC Sketch Y0000 Yellow Fluorite
COPIC Sketch YG0000 Lily White
COPIC Sketch G0000 Crystal Opal
COPIC Sketch BG0000 Snow Green
COPIC Sketch B0000 Pale Celestine
COPIC Sketch C00 Cool Gray 00
COPIC Sketch W00 Warm Gray 00

Then the question comes, What do I do with all those super pale colors?

Well, I know that our design team will love the pale yellow (Y0000) and pale blue (B0000) , as they have been making their own markers in these colors right now. The color "Snow Green" is perfect for...well...snow. That pale red is going to be great for subtle, rosy cheeks, and I would use YR0000 for a pale skin color. Once I get my hands on these I'll try to color something and use these soft colors (see, I can't even play with them yet!! my patience is wearing thin...)

So when will they be available??!!!
Soon. I know you want them NOW. It is very hard to know exactly when the boat is coming over from Japan, but the first few may arrive in time for an Anime Expo sneak peek (July 2-5, Los Angeles Convention Center) Keep your fingers crossed! If you are coming to Summer CHA from July 28-30 you can see them in our booth (not the Supershow). It may be a while before these are in your retail stores or online though. Just be patient and keep looking for them.

Meanwhile, check out the giveaway from Monday and I'll have more ideas tomorrow.

Marianne, I am excited about the pale colors! I have not graduated to mixing my own colors yet. :o) It will save me from trying to lighten colors. I bet Debbie is excited about more yellows too. :o) I'm gonna leave her a comment.

Take care and STAY POSITIVE!

I do enjoy following your blog .......so full of information. Even though I do not have any copic markers I still apply tips/tricks to whatever I am creating.

Tami Mayberry said...

Is it a bad thing that I literally dreamed about these last night? I just ordered some cloud stamps last week and I dreamed I got this whole set and was highlighting my clouds in a rainbow a pale colors. I was so happy...I'm thinking that's borderline obsessive lol

broni (waterchild12) said...

Yes, Tami, I believe that IS borderline obsessive, but I'm right there with you! I can't WAIT for these to be available!!!

Angi Rankin said...

Marianne
I need to find out who I contact at Copic for a very big complaint!
They create and package new Copics and don't let you "play" with them? How rude! Don't these people realize their sales depend on your samples on your blog? I protest!!! lol!
btw, do they have a release date?
