WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN DOING OVER THE HOLIDAYS?

Like alot of you I haven't been doing much crafting over the holidays choosing to spend the time with family - but I have been doing a bit of colouring!

Having received some Prisma coloured pencils towards the end part of last week I was desperate to try them out. 

These are my first attempts and I am loving the results - my favourite use is to define the skin tone and create a smoother more natural effect.  I also like using them for creating a shadow effect around the image which I think works well.  I have also tried them on elements of clothing to emphasise folds etc.







I also discovered that you have to use the copics pens first before using prisma pencils or you don't get the effect - it just looks flat and undefined.

Hope this post has been useful and shows the advantage of using prismas with copics.

Many thanks and have a good new year.
