Copic Markers

 

Copic markers are available in various styles, in 358 non-toxic alcohol-based ink colors and are refillable using standard color ink refills. The markers are airtight to prevent them from drying out. Copic markers come with the ability to refill dry markers with Copic ink refills instead of having to buy additional markers in the same color. Tutorials for how to refill a Copic marker can be found on YouTube and will work for all the marker types, but work best on the Wide and Original. It is also possible to mix the ink colors to create a custom color. Copic markers are mainly used for illustration and design purposes, as alcohol ink is not archival.
