You have already read that the paper you use is key. This is very true! I didn't see anyone mention that the ink you stamp your image that you water color is also very important. You must use StaZon or something similar. I use the aquapainters after having switched from lovely brushes. I love that the AP has water right in it. Now, you do need to practice to get control of the water in the AP or you can end up with a messy mess. I use the WW and the AP together. I don't have time to have a SCS gallery, so I can't show you any samples. But, trust me...the SU stuff really is very good and does produce great results. I use the lid of the WW box as sort of a pallet. I scribble with the crayon on the lid and then lift the color with my AP and apply it to my image. I've also used the crayon tip itself, just lifted some color from the crayon with the AP and applied it to the image.
The second important tip is Practice. What more can be said there??

Some of you asked how to use the crayons. Here is a list of ten things you can use the crayons for and how to use them.

Hope this helps you out a bit

I use my Primascolor H20 pencils and my Tombow Markers
With my Niji Aqua Brush.
I like the look I get from it. I haven't used it on any Good Watercolor Paper yet...but I am thinking about getting some.

Another option would be to use a normal watercolor brush with one of the nifty containers where you squish down on the top and it just puts a little well of water on the top. I'm not sure where you get them though.
GinaK sells them on her website.
