Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q.What does the product name “acrea” mean?

    A.
    "The name ""acrea"" is a coined word combining ""aqua"" and ""create"". The product was named with the belief that more people will enjoy creative activities using this water-based ink marker. "
  • Q.Can I draw on glass with acrea and then remove the ink later?

    A.
    "Yes. You can use the acrea ink on smooth surfaces such as glass or mirrors. Since acrea ink does not soak into these surfaces, you can remove it with wet wipes or a window cleaner. Keep in mind, however, that the longer the ink remains on the surface, the more difficult it may be to remove. Even after wiping off the ink, some traces of the drawing may remain, so it is recommended to test before use."
  • Q.What are the differences between acrea and Copic Sketch, Ciao, and Classic?

    A.
    "Copic Sketch, Ciao, and Classic markers use alcohol-based dye inks. Dye inks produce color by soaking into the paper, making them ideal for coloring on paper. They are transparent and suitable for expressing drawing effects such as layering and gradation. In contrast, Copic acrea is a marker that uses water-based pigment inks. Pigment inks have larger particles than dye and stay on the paper surface. In addition, they are opaque, which means they can cover underlying colors. As a result, acrea can be used not only on paper but also on various other materials, including plastic, acrylic, film, and wood."
  • Q.Can I use acrea with other markers?

    A.
    "Yes. You can use Copic acrea over works created with alcohol-based markers, such as Copic Sketch. For example, the ""Snow White"" color included in the acrea palette has a high opacity that effectively covers the base colors. The acrea ink was developed to be unaffected by the alcohol ink of Copic markers, making it suitable for highlighting in your artwork. Other colors also have a completely different matte texture compared to alcohol markers, so using acrea in combination can expand your range of artistic expression."
  • Q.Can you color over drawings made with acrea using Copic markers (alcohol ink)?

    A.
    No. Copic acrea's ink is not resistant to alcohol. If you color over drawings made with acrea using Copic or other alcohol markers, the acrea ink will dissolve and become discolored. If you want to use them together, it is recommended to use acrea after coloring with alcohol markers.
  • Q.Can I mix acrea inks?

    A.
    Yes. You can mix multiple acrea inks on a palette. However, when mixing colors directly while drawing with acrea, please note that the nib may smudge and affect the original ink color.
  • Q.Does Copic acrea have lightfastness?

    A.
    Yes. Copic acrea contains pigment ink and offers higher lightfastness compared to markers that use dye ink. However, it is essential to consider display conditions, storage location, and storage method, as these factors can affect the speed and extent of color fading.
  • Q.I feel the acrea ink colors seem too light. Is there a problem?

    A.
    "It may be that the ink is not sufficiently mixed. The acrea ink consists of pigments, water, and resin, among other components. If left unused for a while, these components may separate. To ensure proper mixing, shake the pen up and down with the cap on before use. If the ink still seems too light, residual resin on the nib from previous use may affect the color. Gently wipe the nib with a tissue, then make a test drawing to remove any excess residue before using the marker."
  • Q.The amount of ink coming from the nib seems excessive.

    A.
    This could be due to ink accumulating in the nib. Copic acrea releases ink by pressing the nib up and down, so avoid pressing the nib for a while. If ink drips, wipe off the excess ink from the nib with a tissue.

It all began with my part-time job at the café, where I found joy in doodling on the chalkboard every day. Before I knew it, it turned into more than just a job – it became my calling. Recently, I've embarked on a new venture by founding "WHW!" – an abbreviation for "What a Hand-Written World!" – a community dedicated to celebrating the art of hand-drawn creations. Additionally, I've launched a breakfast spot named "EENY BREAKFAST & SHOP". Slowly but surely, I'm bringing my aspirations to life.
