Hey guys! Today I'm going to be talking about a Copic Marker alternative that I've recently purchased to hopefully help those on their "perfect pen" quest.
These pens are called Finecolour markers, unheard of right? They took me by surprise as well! I found out about these pens whilst watching a video called "Copic Marker Alternatives" by Baylee Jae on YouTube and I was instantly taken away by their price and I was onto it straight away! So today I'm here to tell you guys about the pros and cons and how they work in comparison to my copics and promarkers! Let's get started!
Disclaimer; I'm not sponsored, I just have a love for what I do so I invest a lot in it. I also don't get everything in one go, I get bits and pieces as I go along and I started collecting a few years ago that's why I have a lot of pens :). Also this is my personal opinion about these pens which is nor right or wrong!So here's my brief intro in quick bullet point form:
- Cheap copic marker alternative
- Double ended tip
- Available in 180 colours
- Alcohol based markers
So, I found out about these markers from Baylee Jae on youtube. She had a video called "Copic marker alternatives". I recommend watching that very much to find about other Copic marker alternatives. Hearing about these pens was probably one of the best days ever and I ordered them from eBay immediately after watching the video.
- Incredibly Cheap
- Alcohol based (Like Copics and Promarkers)
- Dual ended (Double ended)
- Rectangular Shape
- They Hold more ink than Copics
- Colour Codes
- Not as bright as Copics
- Looks very much like a Copic Sketch copy
- Available in only 112 colours
- Not refillable
- Long shipping time
Who are these for? - Beginner artists who are exploring or people on a tight budget.
Worthy of their Price? - Definitely
Do they achieve their purpose?
They do the exact same thing as Copic's, it's just that the end result looks a little bit patchy and rough.
What could make it better?
- A brush tip
- Better quality ink
- A better design

Have you decided if they're for you? If they are then here's some advice for when buying them:
- The best place to buy them is eBay - no rip off just real prices
- If the Price is higher or the same as Copic's you're being ripped off.
- If you're not sure about them the best set to get is the 36 set or 12 set.
