Is the artist within you bursting to shine but your equipment holding you back? The Copic Ciao starter set might just be what the doctor ordered. Take your illustrations up a notch with these top of the range colouring pens. They scream Japanese quality with a few impressive functions. Not just that; they can be used for a variety of artworks, such as cartoons, drawing anime faces, outlines, overcoating paint, shading and blurring! But with so many options on colouring pens out there, why choose these?
Perfect Starter Pen Kit
Like many others around the world, I really enjoy and appreciate that ‘Japanese art style’ of anime and manga! But how do those professional artists create such amazing pieces? They use professional materials! Copic is a very well known make in the world of manga due to it’s high quality and reasonable price. You too can have a piece of that Japanese art action with your very own set of professional colouring pens as these pens for manga are unbeatable! As it comes in a set of 12, it’s the perfect starter kit. That way you can get a good feel for how they work and I know you’ll be wanting to add more and more to your collection. With 180 colours to choose from, it can be quite daunting, but Copic has made it much easier for you as they have carefully selected 12 colours that will allow you to create a vast array of pieces. Included in those 12 is the special colourless blender that allows you to seamlessly blend colours together on the page before you; I LOVE it.
Double Sided Manga Pens
What makes these pens stand out from the rest is that they’re double sided with two types of nib – the super brush nib and the medium broad nib. Both glide superbly with the super brush nib being perfect for those intricate details and the medium broad nib covering more area. On top of that, these pens are made for longevity so you can expect many years of use.
You’ll be happy to know the ink is alcohol based, permanent and non-toxic! Much kinder to our earth but also safe for little ones to use too (just be mindful of their clothes as like I said, it is permanent). Speaking of kids, the cap is kid friendly too with little air holes so if the worst happens and your little angel ends up swallowing a cap by accident, the air holes will allow for breathing until you can have it removed. How’s that for a piece of mind?
The box it comes in is a nice clear, sturdy plastic with a removable lid that allows for your creativity to flow even on the move! If you’re anything like me and enjoy drawing on the bus, car or in the park, this is a real portable life saver. It also stands nicely on your desk without being bulky and as it’s clear you can pick out the colour you want right away without having to rummage in a seemingly bottomless pencil case. The round barrel is beautifully smooth and allows for a great grip; no aching hands whilst you create your masterpieces.
