Why use watercolor pencils? They combine the accuracy of drawing with the color transitions of watercolor painting! These pencils are water-soluble so when you add water, more pigment is released and blending is made possible.
Step One: Choose the colors and the paper you want to use and grab a watercolor paint brush. For these fall cards we used the Watercolor Pencils in Earth Tones. The paper was this fall Color Me Sheet, but any watercolor paper will also work with these pencils.
Step Two: Start Coloring! These pencils can be used by first drawing with them like a normal pencil then use a wet brush to blend, or you can dip the pencil directly into the water and start drawing.
Step Three: Using your wet brush, pass over each area after done coloring to make sure everything is evenly blended together. This is also a great time to add shadows and highlights!
