Watercolor Technique, Watercolor Crayons

Watercolor Crayon TechniquesToday’s Artful Adventures discover what a lovely effect you can achieve with watercolor crayons! Watercolor crayons are water soluble and versatile. They are easy to take with you, as they are pigment in a stick form, sort of like crayons you used as a child, but without the waxiness.  There are numerous ways to use this form of product and today, I’ll show you a few ways to get started!

You’ll want to be sure to use a waterproof ink to stamp any outlines that you may want to use as the basis of a project.  Stazon is one that I keep on hand for this technique, as well as the Stazon cleaner.

If you are using the technique with the water brush, be sure to use watercolor paper.  If you are going to use the blender pen technique, it will work well on your regular Whisper White card stock, as long as you do not try to work it too hard!  If you use any of these techniques, be sure and share with us over on the Artful Adventures Facebook Group!  We’d love to see what you are up to.

My favorite water soluble crayons are Caran D’Ache Neocolor II.

  1. More fun techniques! I love watercolor crayons. The colors are so intense. I don’t buy a lot of stampin’ up stuff, so I use Caran d’Ache Neocolor II Crayons. They are so much fun to use!

    • There are many brands out there, and that is a wonderful brand, Heather! People have to make sure it is the “II” for the watercolors! They have a great lineup of colors and the product is fabulous. The one thing about Stampin’Up! colors is the fact that they are mix and match so that they all work nicely without giving much thought. Thanks for stopping in and commenting! I love to know people have popped by!
