Hello! I was wondering, which pencils do you use to get this result by adding water? Or is this really water you put on your colors? I love how it looks! :)

Hi there! They’re just plain old watercolor pencils. :) You can find a detailed supply list (with links to Amazon) here. Some folks do use solvents in combination with regular soft core pencils to create a watercolor-like effect, but the clean up is more complicated. And thank you for the kind compliment. :3

Working on the first favorite foods submission!

P.S. I’ll reveal the submitter and post a link to their blog with the finished piece :D
