“If people sat outside and
looked at the stars each night,
I'll bet they'd live a lot differently.”
I've been trying to narrow down a short list of Caran d'Ache Neocolor II Crayons to get started. As with my list of golden fluid acrylics, you can make a wish list and start building your stash. Neocolor IIs are the water soluble type, and they are luscious! Lyra aquarelles are quite good as well; I have more Neocolors so I'm using those color names/numbers. You can use them to highlight art journal pages, edge images, paint them with water for a watercolor look, draw on a wet page for intense color...
