Re: Question on mixing pencils
Are Derwent Drawing really good for burnishing? They seem too matte to me. I haven't tried it yet, but Drawing are different from other CPs, being more like a cross between a pastel and a CP; drier, crumbly, matte (but lovely and velvety).
I could imagine that no, they wouldn't play well with other CPs. Derwent Coloursoft, yes, but don't know about Drawing. Marie says she's had success with it, so I can't argue with that, however I can see why you may be frustrated and not achieving results. To me, they seem like they might matte out the glossiness of CP.
