Watercolor pencils

I think they are my new favorite medium!!! I just love the rich colors, look at my dolls eye, and below.....

This is a before and after of his hands, all the details are distinct but soft.

OH the possibilities are endless!

They DO look marvelous! I admit to loving them too, particularly the way they blend...but I've never tried them on dolls...what fun! What kind are you using?

Flora said...

Thank you Fairiesnest! I am using the " Raffine" watercolors, what you see here are a combination of three colors.
