Art supplies! Who doesn't love to collect art supplies!?
I'm incredibly excited to share today's prize with you. Copic has generously contributed a set of their Ciao Too artist-quality markers. I've been researching markers heavily all year and Copic stands tall at the top of the list. Not only does Copic offer their markers in scores of colors, with a variety of nibs to choose from, but Copic markers are also refillable and blendable. That's right—blendable. The ink flows smoothly and colors can be blended together without glaring streaks or stripes.
They make several styles of markers which hold differing amounts of ink, but follow the same color system. The Ciao markers here come with a brush tip on one end and a chisel tip on the other. With some product lines, you can choose which nibs you like best and swap them out as you see fit. Most of their markers are double-ended—except for the super-duper wide ones.
I'm just mesmerized by these. Like every product I'm including in the giveaways this month, I contacted the company because I genuinely love what they do. I have been fawning over this prize ever since it arrived at the studio on Monday. Someone is going to be one lucky duck.
Copic markers are top-of-the-line. They don't come cheaply, but they do their job fantastically and they maintain their value quite well. With refillable alcohol-inks and replaceable nibs, these valuable tools can be used in perpetuity.
They work great for fabric studies and that works for me. I love them.
So, here's your chance to get hooked on these amazing markers too. Today's winner will receive this 24 pack of Copic Ciao Too markers. A $130 value. Thank you, Copic!
