Drafting Film

I normally used white drawing paper like Stonehenge and Strathmore Bristol 300 Vellum paper. After I read the CP Surface Drafting Film by Gretchen Parker, I would like to try and test on Drafting Film. This portrait is my first experience on the drafting film. Drafting film is smooth surface but if we applied light layering, it can accept more layer. Drifting Film can give vivid, vibrant colors. And also provide dark tone easily without heavy pressure . I like drafting film and Thank to Gretchen Parker for sharing your technique with detail step by step instruction.

This was my first experience using drafting film. I did not have the Prisma pencils so used similar colours in PolyChromos. I enjoyed the process and the result, although personally, I find it more easy to follow video turorials, it was a good introduction to drafting film.

Drafting Film Colored Pencil surfaces

I am new to drafting film so this book was a big help to me. Found that dura lar drafting film did not work for me. Bought Grafix drafting film and that has worked out much better. Also found that Polychromos work best on the film. Bought a whole new set of Prismas and found they just got waxy and would not blend. Terminology in the book was difficult for me being a beginner but you will catch on. Has helped me a lot with how to use both sides of the film when doing backgrounds. Would have liked more information about types of drafting films and how to fix problems with blending, slick spots etc.

CP Surfaces. Drafting Film

Loved drawing on drafting film. CP draw easily on the drafting film, so soft and great colour production. Also love how you can rub out with a normal rubber any errors or want to change something. I was a bit confused with the use of the word "wash" (meaning layer). I did use the instructions/method for drawing the yellow/orange rose for drawing a Protea wildflower instead. I wanted to draw the Protea on a card for my daughter wedding anniversary (she had in her bouquet). She loved the finished effect.
