Colored pencils are awesome and The Gals tell us all about them in this episode. Everyone knows about your typical school supply colored pencils but there are many types to choose from depending on what you would like to do with them. And you can use them on almost any surface!
Go look at all of the amazing examples and techniques that we collected for you over on the Pintrest board for this episode here.
Katie Talked about the illustration she did for her friend as a baby gift and promised she would show it here. This is “Bumblephant Comes Bearing Gifts”. The stripes on the body and some of the outlining were done using Faber-Castell watercolor pencils.
OH! Here is the How It’s Made video about colored pencils.
You can find the Prismacolor colored pencils The Gals played around with and all of their colored pencil type products here.
Here is the page for all the Derwent colored pencil products.
And here are the Faber-Castell colored pencil goodies.
The Stabilo Woodies can be found on Amazon but they can be expensive sometimes. Check them out here on the Stabilo site.
