I did a quick google search to get a grasp on what you were referring to with the fat over lean principle. I could only find material pertaining to oil painting but I understand what they were saying about layering paint with different ratios of oil to pigment. Sooooo........the solvent makes the wax 'lean'. (??)

So now I'm thinking out loud here - If pencil colour can be layered over an area that has been treated with OMS am I to assume that the new pencil layer can only work because there was some tooth already left on the surface OR does the OMS mysteriously create more tooth.

Pan Pastel is lean to Prismacolors fat? Yes??
