I am a high school art teacher and wanted to have some quality brush markers for interested students to experiment with. Copic are out of my price range, but a student recommended these to me and they are great! I can’t compare them to Copic because I haven’t used Copic, but I do have a personal set of Prismacolor brush markers and I’d say they come close to their quality. Color is a little more bold vs my Prismacolor markers, so the value builds up a little faster and nubs are slightly more flexible perhaps on my Prismacolor brush markers, but I honestly find myself reaching for these more often than my Prismacolor markers…maybe because I have so many more colors to play with because of the value. Anyway, I will purchase more for my students and myself!
