You can also used 90% rubbing alcohol... I can't stand the smell though - it's actually made me pass out before!

I have used baby oil and OMS. Be careful not to oversatuate with the baby oil and use good paper. I had no trouble getting the blending effect I wanted. Have fun!

I had a really hard time with the baby oil. I went to Michael's and got the OMS and it blends so much easier for me. I don't know what my problem was with the baby oil but I couldn't get it to work right.

I've tried the baby oil and didn't like it. For me, OMS is so much better.

There's a bit of a learning curve with the baby oil - getting the right amount, where to start blending so you don't get an oily halo... I found it was easier to add layers over OMS than over the oil too.

Just wanted to share this - playing with more samples for a shading tutorial... the sample on the left is blended just with pencils (Nectar, Henna, Black Raspberry). The sample on the right was blended with the colorless blender, which I have finally learned to use correctly! Hehe! Just found the difference interesting. Before the final blending they both looked about like the single rose sample.

Beautiful work! Shading is a challenge for me. I'm not naturally artistic, but I've been trying to learn... hope you'll share your tutorial with us.

Beautiful work Dini! The rose has so much depth. I have been having a bit of a play with my colorless blender too after having it sit on my desk for a year wondering what it was for and how you were supposed to use it - so I will eagerly look forward to your tutorial

Beautiful Dini. Question, when you are shading, do you use the side of point or are you holding the pencil with the point face down?

Dina I really like when you post side by side comparisons. Listing the colors you use makes it so much easier for me to see if I can get similar results. I'm not as good as you, but having the right color combo to start with sure helps!

Dini, I found working w/colorless blender soooo much better than OMS! I hardly ever use the Gamsol now. I just ordered the DW blender/burnisher, will let you know how it works out!

i agree! i had never used OMS or baby oil or anything but the colorless blender or pencils themselves for blending until i started stamping and heard about it. so i tried it several times and hated it. i just don't like the look and don't have as much control as i like to have.

i got the derwent set recently and i just have to say that blending pencil is HEAVEN. it is absolutely wonderful!

Can someone please enlighten me about the colorless blenders you're talking about? Is it a pencil or something like the Dove blender pen? Thanks.

this is what you want to look for. there are colorless blender pencils by other companies too but i like these the best. they have them at Michaels or online at dick blick.

it is a pencil with a colorless lead that blends or burnishes your work so the color is smooth and blended.

I use GP all the time with digis BUT I don't like it with gamsol either. I use a colorless blending pencil and am happy with that. I'm looking forward to reading what paper recommendations you get.

Prismacolor Markers has a colorless blender that is what I think sounds like what you are describing. I use one frequently with my pencils. I bought mine at Michael's and it was even on sale. Yay!

We used Bristol paper from Strathmore papers. I still want to try the other blending methods, in time. Need to master one technique at a time.

I just found this thread and so glad I did! I use about every medium there is but one of the companies I design for would prefer I use Prismacolors and Gamsol on their images. I went online today and downloaded a Prismacolor pencil color chart then marked the colors I have. I only has 47 and wanted them all but didn't want to buy the 132 piece set and have 47 duplicates. I found them individually @ Dick Blick's for just .88 cents a piece!!!! I ordered the rst of the ones I didn't have plus some more Very Fines. Can't wait for them to get here!
I posted a card today done with Prismacolors and Gamsol that incorporates a "hair" effect. I would love it if you came to check out my "Goat" card.

Hugs,
True

Hi Trudy! I saw your goat this morning when I caught up on my blog reader feeds, and he made me smile! Glad you found us here.

Just found and bookmarked this article, which is packed with info and tips and techniques for pencils... definitely need to block out some time to go back and study it some more! Incredible!

Hi All, Nice to see some posting going on now. I have a couple cards done on my blog which were done on Create and Craft cardstock. Opinions please. This was my best card for the blending. This morning my friend let me have some Neenah classic crest solar white and I have just had a play with it. Wow! the difference is amazing. Will get an image coloured today and post it later.

Gramma Ann was wondering about all the shades of Grey. I'm a newbie as far as Prisma Pencils are concerned, I too am wondering about all of the Grey, can someone give us a starting lesson in how to use all of them?
Thanks

Not sure if this is what you're looking for. I did a quick search and found this page of videos - The one I watched is the "Layer and blend with coloured pencils" - it's definitely one of the better ones. She does a very good job of showing the layering of colours and takes an image from start to finish. It doesn't cover grey but she does a very good job. YouTube - hero arts videos colouring with pencils. The other ones look good too - I'll be checking them out later

Default Prisma colour chatter

Can anyone tell me about colourless blender pens, how do they work with Prisma pencils, do you load them with Gamsol, or whatever you are using or just use them they way they come????

the colorless blender marker comes already prefilled with a solvent. to be honest it is my least favorite method BUT i am sure others like it!

Copic sells an empty marker - I wonder if it could be filled with Gamsol?
