W5 Warm Grey is a very pale neutral and a foundation colour in the Copic colour system. W is the colour family it belongs to and 5 is the intensity of greyness. On it's own, it can be an interesting shade but, like all greys, it comes alive when blending multiple copic markers together to create your own colours and tones. Also handy for shading and depth.
The Copic Marker is the original Copic Art Tool. It is made for lifetime use but you can get replaceable nibs and refillable ink (you probably won't ever need either!) The ergonomic square barrel design is nice to hold and means the marker does not roll off a table top. It is a double ended marker with medium broad nib for thick strokes and a standard fine nib for thin strokes.
The alcohol based ink is permanent and non-toxic. It dries acid-free (archival quality) and can be used with the Copic Airbrush system. Any two copic markers can be blended together to create new shades and nuances of colour. You can pallet-blend on acetate, achieve multiple degrees of shading and generally explore colour like never before!
The tips are of astounding quality - they do not fluff or break no matter how roughly treated they are and you can rub any two tips together to create a new colour. This doesn't tarnish either marker and each will quickly return to its perfect, normal self.
Copic Markers are the highest quality art tools in the world today! They are Made in Japan and are the number one marker for creative people - whether professional, semi-professional, or hobbyist!
