Neocolor II + Water + Brush = Wow
A fresh page in my 5x8 watercolor Moleskine. Drew a mandala with Caran D'Ache Neocolor II wax crayons. Using a #0 <zero> flat paint brush dipped in water and dabbed on a towell, painted the colors. The colors dissolved, blended together and came to life.
I've not grasped the interplay of necolors and water, but this was a fun experiment. Adding water was slow and detailed, painting individual colors, blending others, keeping the brush clean so as not to muddy up the work. The experiments will continue.
My favorite way to use Neocolor II crayons is actually without water ~ in edging images and ephemera on collages or art journal pages. Pop over to Art Journal: Rhyme or Reason, Art Journal: Summer or Art Journal: Happy Life for ideas. There's also a fun project I did with my daughters called Neocolor Circles.
