Coloring touch up?

0

Quick Questions:

1)Sophia, what kind/brand of colored pencils do you use for color touch up? Are they water-based, or….?

2) Do you use acid-free white paper on your work surface (on top of self-healing board); could one use butcher paper?

Thanks!

Julia

Hi Julia,

1) I prefer to use color pencils that are not watercolor pencils. The watercolor pencils tend to run more and more likely to smear. if you do use them, you will want to spray an archival fixative or at least rub the area with waxed paper.

And 2) I am going to try to keep topics separated (so people can find them!) so I am going to answer this one in the Tools and Materials topic.

    Should non-watercolor pencils be rubbed with wax paper or anything else?  I’m putting some of my dust jackets in Brodart covers. The white backing looked so harsh behind the fairly grubby dust jacket so I’m trying non-watercolor to color in behind some of the larger holes.

        Best brand of colored pencil?  You get what you pay for! Basically the cheaper the pencil the harder it will be to transfer the color from the pencil to the paper. Prang, Derwent, Prismacolor all have some great sets.  That said, I would buy a small basic set and then supplement in the browns and blues. Basically add more book colored pencils.
