Three colored pencils in one. Literally! The Koh-I-Noor Tri-Tone Pencils are fun to have on hand when you’re drawing something vibrant. There are three shades of color within the pigment, creating a multi- colored mark when the pencil hits the paper. The opposite tip of the pencil indicates the color combination. You never know when you’ll need a funky pencil like this!
Oh SNAP! (We could say that all day.) We’re excited to have the SNAP! Series Brush by Princeton Artist Brush Co. in this month’s box. The synthetic hair-tip will guide your paint evenly, and is easy to clean after with some mild soap and water. Simply reshape the brush into place, and make sure you stand the brush upright on its handle to dry.
We’ve found a clean and consistent jar of paint that will boost your knowledge of color theory. The Liquitex Soft Body Acrylic Paint is flexible, creating stroke after stroke of smooth color. You’ve got two onces to play with, so spread your color accordingly.
You’re probably thinking: “This feels so light to hold, what can I do with this?!” Well, there’s a lot you can do with Winsor & Newton Vine Charocal. Vine charcoal is made by burning thin sticks of wood into different sizes and weights. Soft vine charcoal creates a dark bold mark, while hard vine charcoal leaves a fine delicate line. Try making a quick sketch of an object or figure on newsprint, then use your finger to smudge in shadows. (It’s okay to get dirty while using this!)
