Impressed - Highly recommended. I really hesitated on getting these since I own so many similar products. When I attempted Vicki's methods with my similar products and found that 3 other brands didn't seem to dissolve the same way the VB Art Crayons did on the videos I was watching and my results were not as nice, there were solid flakes. I am so glad I changed my mind and bought these. If I had these crayons first I doubt I would have bothered with the others. These are far more versatile.
These crayons blend with water so easily. Their texture is halfway between a pastel and a crayon, or even a little more like a pastel, so they feel creamy and handle well. They also blend together to create beautiful custom colors to match any layout. I find they dissolve best in a small amount of water, but that if I use too much water, I need only wait a couple minutes to let any big chunks soften and dissolve. I like to color on a drop or two of water on a piece of acetate. I can make the color pale or rich. I then use a smooching technique, splattering, or watercoloring to transfer the color to my paper.
this order is very nice, however it is not the crayons that I wanted to find, I was looking for the pens or crayon type for journaling on Bible type thin paper. These do not work. You need to prepare the paper first. I used Gesso first but the coloring was not right. Thank you.
