These past several months I have fallen in love with water coloring in my Bible. Water color pencils are a wonderful way to get that lovely look and yet you also get the ease of using a pencil. I came across the set of Fantasia Premium Watercolor Pencils and thought I should give them a try.

The first thing I noticed when it arrive was how well packaged it was! I am not kidding, the pencils were plastic wrapped so that they did not move at all during transportation. Every single pencil still had it’s very sharp point.

While these pencils don’t have names on them they do have numbers. This does help quite a bit! I also like the variety of the colors in this set. You get the basic colors as well as variations of shades in most of the color families.

The storage tin is well made and will be a wonderful place to store these pencils when they are not in use.

So the first thing I did was apply one layer of clear gesso on my page.

Then I colored with these water color pencils. You don’t need to lay down a whole lot of color.

Then I used my water brush and blended the colors until I was happy with the outcome. I used my craft drier to make sure it is set and dried before I pulled out my gel pens and added some details and sparkle to it.

I am very pleased with how easy these Fantasia Premium Watercolor Pencils are to use and how well they look when you wet them. I will be using them often!
