Hi everyone. Another Dagdrommar piece today. I promise I have been colouring in other books. I would just like to get through some of the older stuff I haven’t posted yet.
I coloured this crab in with FC Polychromos pencils and used a Uniball white gel pen on the diamond she’s holding. The background was coloured with Caran d’Ache neocolor II water soluble crayons. I have had mine for over half a decade and loved to use them in my art journals for q quick, bright splash of colour. They’re expensive so I bought a tin of 15 on discount and gradually collected a dozen or so more over the following months. I would love more but they are super expensive here and very hard to find. There is only one shop I know of where I can get them open stock and they sell there for $4 a crayon! So I’m content with my little stash. Applying them is easy. Colour a thick layer and activated them with a a wet brush. I worked in sections using a swirling motion to get the effect you see above. The paper in Dagdrommar tolerates the crayons well and I also know that Kerby Rosane’s ‘Mythomorphia will too. One of my favourite pictures that I will post soon completed using them in the background.
I will try to post again on Sunday. It might not be possible as I and Hubby are joining my sisters for high tea on the Queenscliff ferry to Sorrento and back. I don’t know what time I’ll pull back into G town but I’ll try to post in the evening. If not it will be on Monday. Catch you then.
