She is good and she also uses a powder blender from Brush and pencil along with a white mixture (made just for CP) that you can highlight with.

Re: Paint thinners with Polychromos

Has anyone here tried the Walnut Oil artist medium with their CP's? It's supposed to be non-toxic. Apparently it takes more time to dry though.

All oils of foods are non toxic in small quantities (otherwise the food would be toxic itself). They do not release significative fumes because they are stable in environment conditions, but hat also means they will take LONG time to dry.

You cannot escape from all issues due to chemistry constraints. You either will lack blending power, dry speed or health safety. Thatuntil someone invent a colored pencil with a non hydrocarbon based mean.
