For: inking/markers
Material type razz aper
Brand: Bee Paper - Aquabee Artist Marker Pad
Where to purchase it d**k Blick, also artist emporium (beepaper.com has a store locator however it does not state AE in manitoba so dunno how up to date it is or if they just order it in for me or something)
Price comparing to other brands:Average - d**k Blick is the cheapest I've found though for it by about 3.00 a pad...
Pro:excellent workability time with copics while not pulling to much ink from the markers and drying them out.
ConSeems to have a new 'recipe' for the paper. Occasionally colors get 'blotches' in them when the paper decides it is over saturated dark colors tend not to go into the paper in but sit on top (This includes the multiliners!) this will occasionally cause lines to smudge!
Up, thread!

This is gonna bug me to no end unless I say something, so I'm gonna say something. Copic markers (original, wide, sketch, ciao) are not pens ,and shouldn't be called such, they are markers. And the name Sketch doesn't mean that it's used for sketching, it's just the name given to said marker as is Wide and Ciao. Their multiliners and SP liners on the other hand are pens.
