  • It's official -- I'm in love with water color pencils. I didn't know they existed until last week. I decided to try them out on a stamped piece of pastel paper. I like the results, even though the pastel paper was prone to wrinkling. What do you think? I'm going to buy some watercolor paper and practice some more. I have some feathers and other bits of nature I want to incorporate into some art, and I think a watercolor base would work well. Let me know if you have worked with watercolor pencils and give me some tips!
