PostColoured Pencil Smudging with graphite

by iwatts » Fri May 10, 2013 2:50 pm

I have tried sketching an outline with graphite, and then adding colour using coloured pencil (wax based). Even with 5H graphites, as soon as the colour touches the graphite it smudges, and I cannot get rid of it.

Should I also be doing the outline using colour pencil, or is there something else I am doing wrong.

Cheers

Hi Ian,

An image would help explain what you ask better.

You could try outlining the sketch with colored pencil first, or you could ink the sketch first then ad color. It all depends on the effect you are going for.
