358 Marker Colors
As many of you have noticed from our designers last week, we now have 12 new colors for 2012. This means that Copic Sketch markers and inks are now available in a whopping 358 colors!
I will be posting more information about these new colors, along with some illustrations later this week. Until then, you can drool over the luscious colors :). Below are some of the thoughts that went behind the development of these colors. G43 & G46: These complete the G40 sequence. These are great greens...not too bright, not too yellow, not too gray. A new must-have green sequence.
BG57: This goes with last year's new color, BG53. These are not as bright as the BG40's but more vibrant than BG70's family.
BG90: A new, beautiful pale, gray BG to go with the other BG90's colors
E84 & E89: These were developed as a nice, slightly greenish brown sequence to match last year's E87
BV34: Poor old BV31 has been alone for so long, but now it has a darker companion color. A lovely grayish BV color.
V22 & V28: This completes the V20 & V25 sequence. These were developed to be nice purples without hints of pink or blue, but are slightly grayish.
RV52: A bright, but pale pink to go with RV55 from last year.
R56: For too long R59 has been alone. This is one of my new favorite, must-have colors. I sequence this with E04-R56-R59. Try it and trust me :)
YR27: This is a wonderful orange, not as brown as the E90's sequence, and not as intense as YR18. It fills out the other beautiful YR20's colors.
These markers are available as pre-orders from many places, and will be shipping in February. Come to our booth at CHA and you can see them for yourself. Booth #2390
Have a great weekend!
