Caran d'Ache Luminance can be considered the best and most expensive pencils on the planet.
Their quality is superb and they are light fast. The pencils are pretty opaque, and that is the reason that I bought a some yellow, green, blue and a white pencils.
I recently received a box of 76 Luminance pencils and am now exploring them.
My first impression of these pencils is that they are one of a kind.
For colouring in colouring books, you do not really need this high quality pencil.
If you want to frame your art work and have it in perfect condition without the colours slowly fading away, then these pencils are the best choice.
Last year, a very friendly lady sent me her set of Prismacolor Premier Pencils.
She thought I would be able to put them to good use. After trying and testing them, I have come to the conclusion that the Prismacolor Premier pencils are a great addition to the pencils that I was using already.
Prismacolor Premier Pencils are extremely soft, that is something you need to keep in mind.
Also, there are some problems with breakage of the pencils because of the softness.
On the other hand, there are some wonderful colour that I love using and these pencils do a great job when the paper is almost saturated with pigment and other pencils are having trouble laying their colours on paper.
If you are having trouble colouring with a 'soft touch', then maybe these pencils may not be the best choice for you.
But I am very greatful that I received the set. I am enjoying them very much.
One of my favourite tools for colouring is the Derwent electrical eraser.
A friendly lady from Israel sent me one as a thank you for the videos that I am making.
This electrical eraser has become my #1 eraser. I use it a lot in detailed work and I also use it to blend lighter colours. A wonderful device!
Johanna's Christmas is a lovely festive colouring book!
I am currently colouring the very first page of the book. Here is a video about how I colour holly and ivy.
I want to wish you all a very merry christmas!
