  3. Mylar and a large stone...the mylar is interesting but i had to quit on the stone surface as it was eating all of my pencils up

    ReplyDelete
  4. The most unusual for me is brown paper bags. It was OK but not something I'd choose. I was experimenting. I have also used Glass. Now that one I did like.

  7. I used colored pencils on Vinyl for shading and marking details when I repainted the faces of 40" Fashion Dolls. It's just one of the first steps for my repaints.

  9. I've tried stainless steel and wood

    ReplyDelete
  10. Crayola construction paper. I highly reccomend you don't do this. The fibers of the paper get fuzzy when you color on it and the pigments don't look good on it at all.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I would say brown paper, just experimenting one day.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Probably over paper I'd splashed tea and watercolour paint all over. Not that unusual, unfortunately but I'll try harder next time!

  13. 5/4 deck boards.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I've tried stones... But it had to be ones that were a lil rough.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I painted a picture with coffee (even weirder since I've never drunk coffee & am not planning on it.) And then I tried to use my colored pencils in some places. It doesen't work very well, unless you like sticky pencils.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Fabric, colored one. Was an disaster...

    ReplyDelete

  41. I have used them to paint what I call my Happy Stick. Due to health problems, I have to walk with a cane, but prefer a nice stick when we are walking around in nature. After stripping the bark off of a long piece of wood I had found, I decided to draw things that make me happy on this staff/stick. I drew clouds, waterfalls, mountains, etc. I put the names of my husband and children onto the stick. I love it. It is special to me.

  51. I haven't been very adventurous since I started using the pencils. White and Cream Stonehenge is about all I've used except for a sketch book that has recycled paper in it. I'll think I'm adventurous when I try black paper. :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. I would have to say on muslin. Colored pencils are great for drawing cloth doll faces!!
