  1. When working on dark paper, use white or a very light color first then overlay it with the color of your choice. Your drawing will be bright and colorful.

  2. Tsukineko Fantastix make great blending/polishing tools. You can get them at www.amazon.com. They are cheaper when bought in a 70 piece tub.

  3. Turpenoid and blending stumps are a color pencils best friend. It blends with full coverage and saves your color pencils. Don't have to use so many layers to create beautiful results. I also use super glue to attach my worn down pencil to attach to a new pencil so I make sure I get the most out of them.

  4. I start by using a darker shade of pencil then I use a lighter
    one to help blend the two together to create a good hue. Also a tissue,a blending stump,or a tortillon helps too lol!! XD

  6. Have to agree with Kelly&#39 - turpenoid and blending. Also being an Art educator, I collect the broken off leads and stump leads in baby food jars of each color, which are used as drawing/coloring tools by holding leads under a finger! Kids love it!

  7. You don't have to frame your work. You can glue your paper to a box or other surface to create a funnctional piece.

  9. I like frottage and I like drawing on both sides of translucent paper (that trick helps getting the most out of your palette making colors deeper and richer) and then final drawing is placed on top of slightly colored paper)

  10. I like to use the Verithins to clean up my edges making them nice and sharp and crisp.

  11. I like to rotate my pencil as I draw to help keep that sharp tip even longer, less sharpening! Also, 'Kelli's Color Pencil Portraits' already mentioned it, but putting a small touch of super glue to stick old stumps onto new pencils so the pencil doesn't do to waste at all. =)

  12. The tube that house the round white erasers are great for holding a prisma color pencil when they get small.

  13. I like to use colored paper meant for pastel work. The colors really sing out!

  14. I always work in small circles to create even layers. I build up color slowly to achieve a vibrant look in the finished piece.

  15. I always put a terrycloth towel down under my pencils while working on a project. The towel keeps them from rolling around or off my art table!

  16. I use Artigain paper. My colorless blender is very helpful for getting an oil like effect to my colored pencil projects!

  17. Use a watercolor background and let some of the watercolor show through.
