@jandrese I think the short answer is no. It’s more like 48 markers (half of them being double-tipped, so to speak) paired up to make 24 markers. Look at the 4th pic for more clarity.
(Each marker is light colored at one end, stuck to another short marker which is medium colored at the connecting side, then dark colored at the far end.)
@jandrese The blending does happen on paper. Alcohol markers blend very well and having the next shade on hand is actually pretty convenient. Quality improves with a sturdy paper that can handle the amount of ink you’ll be putting down.
Wow, this is an amazing deal if you like coloring with alcohol markers! I love Spectrum Noir markers, they’re a decent substitute for much more expensive Copics and I already have a bit of collection (but nowhere near all of these colors).
If you haven’t used alcohol markers before, they’re wonderful for detailed coloring and shading. By layering a single or multiple colors, you can achieve fairly smooth gradients/blends that aren’t possible with water-based markers — and they don’t bleed or rough up soft paper like water-based markers, either. If you ever go to a convention and get a little quick piece of art drawn by your favorite comic or graphic artist, odds are good they’re using alcohol markers (but probably the pricier ones).
@mwarren Quick drying is both a pro and a con with alcohol markers, though they don’t dry out instantly. If they were just abandoned for a little bit of time, like an afternoon, they might be ok after you find them and pop the tops back on … or sometimes you can wet a dry tip with isopropyl alcohol (some people use water but that doesn’t make as much sense to me). But I could definitely see this killing some of them.
@saramwrap Wow, the email version of this post is illegible
Wow, this is an amazing deal if you like ████████ with ███████ ███████! I love ████████ ████ ███████, they’re a decent substitute for much more expensive Copics and I already have a bit of collection (but nowhere near all of these ██████). If you haven’t used ███████ ███████ before, they’re wonderful for detailed ████████ and shading. By layering a single or multiple ██████, you can achieve fairly smooth gradients/blends that aren’t possible with water-based ███████ — and they don’t bleed or rough up soft paper like water-based ███████, either. If you ever go to a convention and get a little quick █████ of art drawn by your favorite comic or graphic artist, odds are good they’re using ███████ ███████ (but probably the pricier ones).
