First Try with Color Powder Blender

This was my first try with color powder blend and used Fisher 400 paper. I love dark backgrounds and must say using the blender powder made this a breeze. Any critique will be gladly accepted. Thanks.

Your Rose is lovely. The different shades of green in the background look good.

Re: First Try with Color Powder Blender

Beautiful, Donna. It looks like the powders are a great way to achieve the mottled, blended background. (Which I tend not to have the patience for with pencils. Haha!)

Re: First Try with Color Powder Blender

The background took me only 1/3 the time I would normally spend on it. Between the powder and the textured fixative it was so easy to accomplish. Really feel these tools were a great addition to those working in color pencil medium. Won't give up my other methods but find I am really looking forward to doing another piece using these tools.

Re: First Try with Color Powder Blender

Love what youve drawn and backgrounds are a real pleasure to do this way.
The powder blender is fun, quick and easy. I just find its also very dusty not as bad as pastels still quite dusty.

Re: First Try with Color Powder Blender

Karen, Iíve been using powdered blender for a while now. I find it works well with both working and final fixatives. However, I donít know if anybody else has noticed this or not, but powder blender causes the colored pencil to flake off easily. Iíve been using workable fixative between layers to help prevent this,then make sure I spray several coats of final fixative when Iím certain itís finished.

Re: First Try with Color Powder Blender

Oh that is striking! Curious about the powder blender. Is that a product that's available now from manufacturers or a technique for using pencil shavings? Results are striking and I can see how it'd work great for loose soft-edged backgrounds.
