I've been wanting to put together a video on pencil blending methods for a while - I finally finished it up last weekend. These are the methods that I cover in the video:
Here's the video! Please let me know what you think, and if you have questions please post them on the video or post them here. I wish I had a video of me talking with my hands and pointing at my computer screen when I was doing the audio - I'm sure that would be amusing!
If you're interested in my video on pencil shading, you can find it HERE. The written tutorial can be found on Splitcoaststampers.
The pencils I used in both videos are Polychromos Pencils.They are oil-based pencils - a little drier than Prismacolors (not waxy), and they don't have the breakage issues either. I looooooove mine and highly recommend them. A teeny sweet reminder, too, that if you order from Dick Blick, please click through to them via the button in my left sidebar if you'd like to swing a little percentage of your purchase my way. That gives me a little extra pencil money once in a while! Thank youuuu!!
