The case is constructed very well. It is not all Aluminum - but rather that is the trim. The case its self is a sturdy textured plastic type material but it does not look or feel cheap. The blue color is vibrant and will make the case stand out and be very difficult for anyone to walk off with! The inside of the case is a padded , slightly rubberized material. The one draw back is the fact that it does not come with any type of internal storage organization system. I believe Copic expects you to purchase empty plastic marker boxes or use the ones they sell their 12 count and higher sets in. If you put a Copic plastic case standing up inside and close the case they do not move at all. I found a custom made insert that fits perfectly that will store all my markers - so it is easy to make the case work exactly the way you prefer. I love how secure the latches are - no chance of them popping open plus you can even lock them. The shoulder strap makes it easy to transport and keep your hands free. I would recommend this case to anyone needing a storage solution for their Copic markers.
This is an excellent product. For colored pencil drawing, whether detailed or shading, these pencils deliver. I use them for prep drawings for my fiber art, so I can get shades of color set up on paper before I set up on the felt background. When I need to unwind, colored pencils and a coloring book can't be beat. This set was very fairly priced, new in box, packed well and arrived quickly. I would definitely recommend purchasing this item from Overstock to my fellow artists.
Promptly shipped and delivered. Clean and safely packed, exactly as described. I have used several different brands of mixed media paper for ink/watercolor/gouache illustrations and paintings over my 25 years of painting. Strathmore has the strongest surface with the best surface texture I have worked with. this paper is very smooth with no teeth for fine details. For wet on wet work use watercolor paper instead.
