    1. Thank you so much, Lisa. You're too kind! If you're lucky you might find a store that carries Polychromos and Luminance open stock so that you can try them out both without investing a fortune.

    1. Thank you, Susan. So glad you like my tutorial. I've tested various sketching papers with colored pencils. The one I'm using in the video is "Croquis" by Clairefontaine. It has a visible structure and takes the pigment from the pencil wonderfully. What I love most is that it is a really bright white paper, as most sketching papers are rather off-white. Other sketching papers with a smoother (but still useful) surface are Hahnemühle "Nostalgie" (a Germand brand) and Strathmore Bristol Smooth 300. Of course Stonehenge is ideal too, but it is also very structured and I find that this is not necessarily beneficial when coloring smaller images (especiall Lawn Fawn critters an the like).

Ich benötige auch immer meine Color Charts,egal ob Copics, Polychromos oder Distress Marker und verbrinnge die größte Zeit damit die Fraben zusammenzusuchen.*hihi*

    1. Thank you, Mary! I do indeed realize that the way I color changes with time. This does not necessarily mean that I improve my method. Sometimes I just love to try out new styles for example. Which, of course, doesn't make my former method useless. But I thought I should better mention this fact in case anyone watches my tutorial three years from now and realize I don't color that way anymore. :o)

I also see that you've dedicated time to responding to people who've sought more details about certain things; heart-warming and, of course, helpful! I live in small town Canada and don't have access, outside of online shopping, to crafting supplies. I'd love to invest in some of the paper you mentioned (or an equivalent brand), but I'm not sure which paper with tooth would work best for me, given my 'access' issues. Research, research *grin I love coloured pencils...more practice needed, so having your videos to draw inspiration from is incredibly marvelous! Thank you!
