Top TipsWhen using coloured pencils on medium or dark papers, it's often best to draw your design with a normal sketching pencil. This provides a foundation drawing that you can plan and adapt before committing to adding colours. This is a technique often used by artists who specialise in realism, but it also works well for abstract styles too. The Black Edition pencils also work great on 'Kraft' paper or card stock, which is light brown in colour and often 100% recycled - great for those who like to use eco-friendly tools and materials.
