Readers will learn three distinct painting methods: water-soluble colored pencil; wax and oil-based colored pencil with solvents; and wax-based colored pencil used with a heated surface. (Using a heated surface is an exciting new technique that softens wax-based colored pencils and other wax-based media to a viscous consistency, similar to traditional opaque painting mediums.) Readers will discover an unlimited variety of creative possibilities, from the painterly style of acrylics and oils, to the loose watercolor look of water-soluble colored pencils, plus everything in between.
Easy to follow step-by-step demonstrations, teach different techniques and subject, and include specific materials lists and color pallets. The final chapter will include demonstrations combining the three methods.
