My daughter has several of these coloring books and just loves them. They have some beautiful artwork in them and as you said, Susan, they look like Zen tangle. The kind of art work  she does! She got some prismacolor pencils for
Christmas. The student quality, because those things are really expensive!!! a pack of 60 was $60! We used a Hobby Lobby coupon to save some on them. I played around with them(after her, of course!) and they still work very well. I will post a couple of practice pieces in another post.

Christina, as soon as I get my better grade paper, I'm going to try to do some "real" pencil work. Something I read said that using the colorless pencil for burnishing (which is great for the coloring books) tends to flatten the tooth of the paper, so burnishing with tortillons and stumps with a bit of odorless mineral oil is the way to go.

Susan,  I haven't used any odorless mineral spirits. I used a colorless pencil for burnishing. I will have to try using the spirits.

 :heeha: Excellent work Susan, looks like we have a colouring goup forming here! Great for practice  O0

Mea, the PB templates can be used for any medium you choose, and yes by all means post them on PB. I would think until we get a dedicated section for coloured pencils, the various encourager sections that the template comes from should suffice. You just can't sell them.
Cheers, Val

Susan:  Your flowers look great.  I found that the colorless blender makes flower petals smooth.  You can just go over the color.  Kathy

Hubby is having surgery next Wed., so I'll be taking my coloring books with me to his hospital room, which is where I'll be hanging out for 5-6 hours a day. He's supposed to be in hospital 3-5 days. Now...do I take all 72 pencils, or my modest 24-pencil set?  :-\

Take your 24 set and make 72 colors out of that.  Should be good practice for layering :).   Wishing your husband a speedy recovery.

Jill, that is just what I thought, too, after I posted this. And thanks for those good wishes.

Susan,

Hope all goes well for your husband.   

I'm sure if you don't take all 72 pencils, you'd wish you had.

But, then again, Jill has a point about taking the time to practice layering.  Maybe try that the first day and see how it goes.
