Time to Tangle in Color, Lesson 1

I have been waiting for some time to take a class with Tombow's Marie Browning and yesterday we started our Time to Tangle in Color class. For lesson one, I jumped right in by taking things out of order - what's new, haha! I had never worked with the Irojiten pencils, they are a wax-based pencil that is not water-soluble. That would actually be two things I had not worked with: wax-based and non water-soluble. I like where I'm starting, but I believe I need to add more color. I am used to having a wide range of colors to work with in the Derwent product line, so this is really strange to be so limited in color options. I hope that I will learn to blend and mix color, thereby creating more color. OK, got to go work on that. Hope to post another tile tomorrow, with more progress and better results.

  1. I had to go with the Derwent Coloursoft as they're wax based, think the Inktense are too. Anyhow, I digress......... I've mostly used the Polychromos which are oil-based. You might like Gary Greene's book Ultimate guide to Colored Pencil........, I'm working with 36 colours in my little Colorsoft set so shall see how I get on with that.
