Stupid stamp ink and copics!!

I absolutely hate stuff that is conditional. As in: Is Archival ink copic-proof? Yes, but only on certain papers

This is Stonehenge printmaking paper, left OVERNIGHT:

This is after blasting it with the heat gun so long the paper curled:

And this is the NEXT day:

I normally use StazOn with my Copics, which I just found out is a Copic no-no. But it works. It's worked on every paper I've ever tried it on. I only switched because this is supposed to give a cleaner image, AND because I wanted black and there was no black StazOn at Archiver's that day. next coupon I'm getting black StazOn from someplace!! Oh, and sometimes I say "cope-ic" and sometimes I say "cop-ic", even in my own head. I make myself absolutely crazy. If you've ever read my blog and thought "Is this chick completely off her rocker?" the answer is YES. One hundred percent. Wait, one more thing - those are Suzi Stamps!!


  1. This should be a YSM. I've spent the last 3 days looking up everything I can on Copics since I decided not to get the Spectrum Noir. There is so much to learn. I even debated on taking the class for certification but there isn't one in my area.

  2. You're absolutely right about this being a YSM. We'll try all the papers and inks we can find. I love it! I wish I could take a "real" copic class, but they're so expensive. Kelly has taught me a LOT!
