Copic markers do not dry out when not in use if closed properly. Copic Various Ink Refills are available in 358 colours and can fill a marker several times. The ideal colouring marker for professionals and hobbyists!
Being the most affordable marker, the Ciao is a popular choice. It features a flexible brush tip and a medium chisel tip and is available in 190 different colours. It is very similar to the Copic Sketch, but holds less ink and the caps on each end don’t have the colour code and name. The barrel is round but the lids have a slight protrusion on each end to help prevent them rolling around. A refill bottle can refill a Ciao 17 times.
