My New FAVE Media!!
Pencil Crayon and Mineral Spirits. LOVE LOVE LOVE the technique. These two images were my first attempts using mineral spirits as a blending tool and did I mention that I LOVE the results??!!
I used Derwent pencil crayons for the candle girl and Prismacolours for the Dragon just to compare. Both worked well, the Prismas being slightly more challenging to blend. I stamped the images on Neenah, with Memento ink and the mineral spirts didn't touch the ink, no smudging of the image at all.
Sheila at Scrappin' Great Deals has been contemplating stocking pencil crayons and mineral spirits in the store. I hope she does, it is a technique I think that *GASP* rivals COPICS!!
