As for the shading, I too, took one class and it was shading. I was terrible. I usually just do the lighter color, outline with the next one, go back with the light one, and then some of the darkest where you think it will go. What kind of paper do you use? The expensive does work better.
Right now so many of my pens are empty and I've been trying to find a place to order that has all the ones I want, but it's not going to happen. LOL.....
I'm using the Neemah bright white paper. It colors up really nicely for the print and cut and it seems to hold the colors well for the alcohol inks, too. It doesn't pill with the ink.
Have you tried Oozak.com for the Copic refills? They're pretty reasonable in their pricing.
