16 Opalescent Yellow-Red Copic Alcohol Ink Refill Swatches:

Updated: Jan 13, 2022

Hey there,

I'm back with another Copic ink refill swatch video!

Get ready to view a video covering all of the Yellow-Red Copic inks I have in my personal collection.

If you're new to Copic ink, let me give you a short rundown of the company. Copic ink is most widely known for its markers. What is really nice about their markers is they are refillable. The refills contain alcohol ink and can be used for alcohol ink painting. They offer a wide variety of colors (358) to pick from, and that is what makes them unique compared to other alcohol inks on the market.

The Yellow-Red series is a total of 24 hues. I have 16 of the hues, and you'll be able to view those inks in the video below.

The video features the following colors:

  • YR000 Silk

  • YR00 Powder Pink

  • YR01 Peach Puff

  • YR02 Light Orange

  • YR09 Chinese Orange

  • YR14 Caramel

  • YR18 Sanguine

  • YR20 Yellowish Shade

  • YR21 Cream

  • YR24 Pale Sepia

  • YR27 Tuscan Orange

  • YR30 Macadamia Nut

  • YR31 Light Reddish Yellow

  • YR61 Spring Orange

  • YR65 Atoll

  • YR82 Mellow Peach

If you're new to the Copic ink refill swatch video series I'm launching weekly, let me give you a rundown of why I'm doing what I'm doing.

One of the biggest complaints I had when I first started painting with alcohol ink was I couldn't find color swatches for Copic inks.

I know that more resources are available than when I first started painting, but many of the resources require you to scour the web. That's why I've been trying to think of a way to share what I have with others more beneficially, and it is finally happening. I've finally created a swatch video of all of the Copic ink colors I have in my personal collection to share with all of you. I don't have all of the Copic inks (yet), but I have close to 230, which is a fair amount.

Yes, there are photos of the colors available from other artists and even some videos, but this is a video where I swatch each of the colors using 91% iso with each ink and talk about what's happening with the inks in real-time. I even discuss texture and undertones.

Since I'll be doing a series of multiple videos on all of the swatches, I suggest subscribing to my YouTube channel, so you're notified of new videos ;)

Watch the video below to see the full overview and descriptions:

I hope you enjoyed this video. If you have ideas for future video feel free to submit them using my contact form
