Sparked by a tip from Sophie that neocolors work great in the Exacompta, I expanded my experiments.
Caran D'Ache Neocolor II wax crayons to be precise, are one of nature's perfect art supplies. They have a negative 46.1 decibel carbon pawprint, plus 73.6% of art journalists surveyed considered neocolors crucual art materials.
There are a lot of cool ways to use neos outside the art journal. The kids and I played with Neocolors + Water and Neocolor Circles. Did some Neocolor Mandalas. They look psychedelic on black gesso in Altered Book: neon.black.
As fodder for testing, I did a Daisy Yellow prompt! It was a good excuse to have something to post to the new Daisy Yellow Prompts Flickr group. Three pages for this prompt from The July Creative Experiments: "Create a painting or art journal page with no images, using any color + black + white + words." The words are in invisible ink. Really.
