Hi All! So today I am going to talk a bit about Olo Markers. If you are an Alcohol Marker colorer, then you have probably heard chatter about or even have tried the new Olo marker. So recently I went out to Jenn Dove’s Boot Camp, taking the Olo’s needed for the classes. I tried them a little at home, with some frustration. So, I put them aside to wait until I could get some tips on using them straight from Jenn. She did not disappoint. After an overview and some pointers I fell in love. Yes, I now have a full set as well as a refill cartridge for each color. You can configure these markers in a couple of different ways. I am using the brush tip screwed to a refill. That’s like 8 markers! Now, by NO means am I replacing my Copics. I mean honestly I have two full sets and a full set of old style refills! Right now my Olo’s are a good ADDITION to my Copics. Here are MY pros and cons on the Olo’s

Now, on with the Show & Tell…

Only her face and hair and the map are done with Copic, the rest is all Olo.

I’ve heard of these markers and have seen some demonstrations but I think I will stick with my Copics. It is quite an initial investment in markers so I’m very hesitant to add any additional markers to my stash. I’m getting ready to retire (9 weeks!) so I’m being cautious on what I purchase right now. I love the card! Great job on the coloring! Thanks for sharing the card and information on these markers!
