Watercolor Pencils For Paper Crafters - wet paper towels vs tissues
Watercolor pencil is very interesting.
I have been using them in paper craft projects for over 10 years.
Do you remember the books we used to color with brushes?
All you do is touch the brush to the water and color the page?
A color will appear suddenly?
These pencils are also very interesting!
Basically, this is the same idea.
You color the item with a pencil, add a little water, and you have something special.
Watercolor pencils combine the ease of use of colored pencils with the color of paint.
The colored pencil is wax or oil-based, while the pencil of the watercolor pencil is water-soluble.
I like to use them in my card making project.
You can doodle in front of the card (also known as zentangles), then color the card with a pencil and add water to create something truly unique.
Hot stamping is the perfect medium for watercolor pens.
Scrapbook is another place to add special touches created by watercolor pens.
Of course, the image of the seal is enhanced with a water color pencil, as well as the border, title, cushion, and so on.
There are colored pencils everywhere.

There are wider and more expensive settings to reach 120 colors.
These sets are more artistic.
If you want to invest in these products, you will definitely get better results.

However, these watercolor pens have a more dry feeling.
When you create a paper item with a colored pencil, you need to remember that you add a wash to the lead to create the image.
The surface of the paper needs to be able to accept water and then dry without much curl.
Watercolor paper is easy to buy and is the perfect paper for watercolor pencils.
You can often find cards made of watercolor paper.
You can use other paper, but it is better to use heavy card paper.
The minimum weight is 80 lbs.
The problem with lighter paper is that it does not accept water and the fiber of the paper may be "scrubbed" off.
You may also roll up when the paper is dry.
There are a few things to consider when grinding watercolor pencils.
Like other colored pencils, they are easy to break if not careful.
I know how frustrating it is when your watercolor or colored pencils break, especially when you grind them.
What's worse, the point is broken when you use them!
The first thing to try is to use a hand-held pencil sharpener.
I like to use a hand held pencil sharpener because I have more control over the process.
I am right hand, so I prefer to have a pencil sharpener with my right hand.
I have a pencil in my left hand (my non-dominant hand ).
Hold the pencil directly and turn the pencil sharpener instead of the pencil.
If the pencil sharpener has two holes, use a larger hole.
This will give you a more acute point of view to reduce the chance of breakage.
Sandpaper knife pads-
These types of pads allow you to have final control over the pencil, but more time is needed to sharpen it. Ideas-
A lot of people like to use a battery or an electronic pencil sharpener, and you need to remember that you have much less control than a manual pencil sharpener.
I have one, but it is rarely used.
What I find is that I tend
Cut the pencil.
So, if you are going to buy one for your watercolor pencil, be sure to buy one automaticallystop feature.
Another thing to consider is, if you are using these pencil sharpeners, don't over-use it in one session.
(You actually put pressure on the motor to make the blade dull.
About every 12 pencils or so, grind a graphite pencil on your pencil sharpener.
There will be any Wax Building
Take it out of your pencil sharpener.
Do not use pencil sharpener for cosmetics.
They do it for a soft pencil like a eyebrow pencil.
They don't usually have the same type of blade.
Make sure your blade is sharp!
If your shavings are long and continuous then your blade is sharp!
If the shavings are short and choppy, your blade will become dull.
Blade or roll knife should be replaced.
Otherwise, you may hurt the core of the pencil.
Forget those old-fashioned crank Wall model sharpeners.
They will cause serious damage to your investment.
The Blender pen is another very useful tool for creating perfect water color technology.
It liqushes and merges the color area.
You can actually omit the water with the brush.
It will aggravate the colors and make them blend smoothly as the technology does not have water and the paper does not buckle.
This means that you can use regular card inventory in your project.
The first thing you should do when you get the pencil is to make a watercolor chart.
This will help you when you start.
Take all your colors to make the two adjacent squares of the same color.
I keep the same range of colors on the same line.
Mark them with the name of the color below.
Gently color the square on the right with a little bit of water and let it dry.
In this method, the color is applied with a colored pencil, and then the color is dissolved with a brush and water.
Apply water using a round, flat or watercolor pen.
Immerse the pencil in the water, draw a line or color it on dry paper. .
Another way is to wet the paper with a large brush and color it with a wet pencil.
Heavy paper may need to be soaked for 10-
This technology takes 15 minutes.
Scribble on dry paper.
We brush with dry colors to place on the item.
This is great for the background or larger area.
Sprinkle wet with salt in large areas.
Let it dry.
When the salt and paint are completely dry, gently brush off all the salt.

Apply some wet salt on your paper and let it dry, then apply the paint to it for a sparkling effect. Spattering-
Water is easy to splash
Soluble colored pencil.
Wet the Soft Adult
Brush the watercolor pencil tip on the damp bristles with a clean water-sized toothbrush until there is a large amount of paint on the bristles.
Pat four or five times on a paper towel with a brush to absorb excess liquid;
This also gives a better one.
More granular controlmisted spatter.
If the drop that lands on the surface looks too big, grab the corner of the tissue and let the tissue suck the drop dry. Do not blot.
Wet the paper first and choose two different colors.
Apply one at each end of the wet patch, and then let the colors mix together by themselves.
Stamp the background design with a stamped ink pad.
Heat and heat with transparent powder.
Apply a heavy color area on the background of the card or other watercolor paper.

There are two ways to enhance or erase watercolors made with pencils.
