MEETING: Nicholas Ng

Nicholas was kind enough to demonstrate his technique of colored pencil blending using many layers and rubbing with cotton. Thanks you Micholas - although many of us doubt we have your patience!

Nicholas displays samples of his work and them shows us how he starts very lightly with the pencil, then rubs with the cottom.

Sharpening pencils with a razor saves color! Barbara Nahler tests out Nichlas' method.

Member Question: Wendell W. Unzicker

I am wondering if anyone has used the new Blick colored pencils and what they think of them? I pretty much limit myself to either Prismacolor, Bruynzeel, or Faber Castell and am loathe to try something new unless I know a little about it. Too many other brands of pencil out there are just not any good.
