There are many kinds of watercolor pencils. It is my conviction, as with so many other things, are price and quality together. The cheaper pencils, the less pigment there is in them and the harder it is to get the color to cover!
Derwent is a good brand, but there are certainly others that are just as good!
Jeanne uses faber castell.
The materials used for coloring:
Watercolor Paper, choose something that is not too coarse in texture as it may be difficult to stamp on! I use Canson 200 gram, available in a block with 100 sheet to about. 150 kr.
Water resistant inks, that fx. Stazon – it must be waterproof because otherwise the color runs out, when water comes in. Alternatively, you can emboss sit scene with embossing powder and a heat gun.
Stempler – I recommend you start with some without too many small details!
Brushes - I use a water brush, which is a brush, where to fill water in the shaft and then run it quietly out and mingle with the color while you paint. It also goes well with a plain. brush in str. 2-3
Paper towels to dry the brushes of the.
Add color around the edges of your subject with a soft hand, be careful not to press too hard on the pencil, so it can be difficult to distribute the color of the water!
Afterwards, drag the color from the edge toward the center with a wet brush. The water dissolves the color and allows you to move with the! Be careful not to slop too much water on, as the paper curls!
When you need to change the color dries you water the brush in the kitchen to the color is gone Continue in this way with the different colors in your design and let it dry a little.
Now I take color directly from the pencil with a wet brush and put it on by pushing the edge with my brush, so there will be a natural transition, not a sharp edge.
Cheeks can be colored chalk / chalk.
