Pencils : LUSENET : About Hawaii : One Thread

Have you ever tried using oil based pencils for any of your works and if so, how do they compare to the regular colored pencils?

I have used oil based pencils. I don't usually use them unless I am finishing an original or I use them quite a bit for touching up my Giclee prints. They don't blend as well for me as the prismacolor and spectracolor pencils do. I know that some people use them for originals and they like them though.

Since I have no artistic talent and can only appreciate others - I wouldn't know the difference as to the materials you use. I do know that your work is BEAUTIFUL!
