Highly detailed instructions for every step, including the pressure you should use, how sharp a point to use, etc
Emphasis on the why of the particular technique, rather than just the "what", which is by far the best kind of instruction. You'll find no clearer or more thorough colored pencil instruction online.
Note: Colourfix Suede Pastel (white) drawing paper not included. (Order pre-cut sheets from the Extras tab above)
First, let's get one thing out of the way. This project, like Ann's others, are not "adult coloring books." They aren't necessarily supposed to be "easy." I own every tutorial available through Ann's collection except for one, and it's true; this one is detailed and complex. After all, it deals with painting abstract reflections in shiny silver with a variety of pencil brands on a toothy support covered in powdered marble dust. The reason that this is probably my favorite of all of the project kits is because of its complexity, and because of the results I achieved and the things I learned when I FOLLOWED the directions, which were perfectly detailed. I deeply enjoyed that the author went to great pains to explain the properties and appropriate uses of the three types of pencils (Prismas, Luminance and Pablo) recommended for the kit. She even explained the difference in composition and clay versus wax content in the two wax based pencils the kit requires. The Luminance pencils are expensive and well worth it. The Colourfix support is expensive, and yields a result with this kit that isn't possible with any other support of which I'm aware. It took me nearly a year of off and on weekends to complete this kit as a new artist, and I wound up with a piece that my younger sister now displays in her home. More importantly, I learned many techniques and about several pencils and support to which I wouldn't have been exposed in any other kit available. I recommend this kit to anyone wanting to learn in depth about producing photo realistic reflective metal. I simply loved working through it. Probably not the best kit for someone wanting to just **** some time "coloring," but the latter isn't the target customer for this kit. No matter what your experience level, though, a bit of patience and a lot of following the directions will yield spectacular results that will surprise you!
I have not started this kit yet has i have been trying the Bengal Tiger Kit I also purchased. I as extremely happy with the results I achieved form this kit, has I did not have a good paper,so I'm purchasing a better paper next week and will try this kit again hoping to complete it in time to exhibit it in my art groups exhibition later in May, We are a University of the Third Age Art Group, which uses all medias to produce some very professional work, I'm currently the only one one that uses pencil on a regular basis, so I,m trying to promote this media. I received some very encouraging comments for my work which pleases me has Im self taught. Like the lady in the magazine I first came across the art of coloured pencils on a cruise and realy enjoy my art Jackie
I love the step-by-step directions and I really learned how to make reflective parts and pictures thank you very much
Easy to follow step by step instructions and clear pictures. Very happy with this particular down load book. :)
I recently purchased this impressive tutorial and love the booklet and its packaging. Thank you for keeping your standards high and offering such a wide range of educational products in the colored pencil market!
