For this February Box, we’ve fallen in love with a new marker: the Copic Ciao. This is a professional-grade, double-ended marker with the ability to blend like no other. The high-quality color creates dimension in any illustration or design. You should probably ask this marker to be your Valentine.
The two pieces of this pen need each other like Romeo needs Juliet. The ZIG Cocoiro Lettering Pen consists of a refill ink pen and its chic, colored case. This pen makes a smooth mark from start to finish. For those who have a “heavy hand,” try holding the pen at an angle and use the side of the nib.
Never used a kneaded eraser before? The Prismacolor Kneaded Eraser is here for you to try! It functions by absorbing the graphite and charcoal marks on your paper. It won’t wear down like plastic erasers or leave behind shavings, so it lasts much longer than other erasers. Pro Tip: “Warm up” your kneaded eraser by pulling and folding its body.
The pencil grading system is something every artist should know. “H” stands for hardness while “B” stands for blackness. We’ve picked a pencil grade that will work well with the Prismacolor Kneaded Eraser. This petite orange pencil is perfect for drawing, writing and any other creative activity. Please refer to the chart below if you are looking to experiment with other grades.
