Hi Iím new to this website and Iím trying to find out about , what grounds or paper can be used for the new Derwent lightfast oil pencils . I just tried them on canvas paper and itís too harsh . Surely water colour paper like arches would rot if you use oil on that ? People have suggested watercolour paper but in my experience as an oil painter , the oil would rot the unprimed surface .i bought these to hopefully use with my oil paints on smaller more detailed works. I was wondering if any of you had experience , using them on gesso panels or rabit skin primed wood surfaces ? Canvas etc ? Any advice or suggestions would be most appreciated , as Iím starting to wonder why I bought the dam things now lol ! :
also can you use ordinary oil mediums and solvents with these pencils ? Thanks .
