Tips, Tricks & Techniques 0x022

Ever wonder what the difference is between all the Copic gray colors? My friend Ruby had the same question and I decided it would be fun to have a side-by-side comparison! So here it is using four of the new Suger ‘n Spice Dolls from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.

So which color is which? Starting from the top left and going clockwise here are colors used, colored on Copy Paper:

Pepper: C00, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9
Peppermint: 0, N1, N3, N5, N7, N9
Nutmeg: T0, T1, T3, T5, T7, T9
Cinnamon: W00, W1, W3, W5, W7, W8

The top two are the cool-tone grays and the lower two are the warm-tone grays. I have found uses for each of them and select my gray-tone based on other colors on the card. However with that said, my favorite is C tones for metal and W tones for black.
