Hi, John,

This is wonderful - I'm sure your friend loved it. Since I'm not a charcoal person I am interested in what type paper you use, what type charcoal, etc. This is drop-dead gorgeous! Congratulations!

Terry

Hey Jody, bjcpaints and Ruth! Thanks for your comments. The eyes are kind of mesmerizing. I am very pleased with the results..............

Hi Terry! Thanks for your response. I used cold pressed paper that was 300 lb weight. The charcoals I used were stick and pastel and extra soft charcoal pencil. I had to experiment with the best type of charcoal to achieve the results I wanted. It seems that the paper will determine what type of charcoal will work best and give me the image I am looking for....................................John
