This set contains two Derwent Blender Pencils, two Derwent Burnisher Pencils, an eraser and a pencil sharpener. This set is ideal for any coloured pencil artist.
The Derwent Blender Pencil is used to blend colours together easily. It is a soft colourless pencil made from the binder used for making coloured pencils and allows you to blend two or more colours together easily to create a new colour. At the same time it physically mixes and smoothes the colours so individual strokes and hard edges are softened.
The Derwent Burnisher Pencil can be used over coloured pencil to create an impressive shine. The Derwent Burnisher is a hard colourless pencil which when used over layers of pigment provides a rich polished finish. Burnishing pushes the pigment into the paper and leaves a very well blended, photo like finish. By sealing the image with a heavy wax it gives the image a polished or reflective look and makes the colours appear brighter.
The Burnisher can also be used for the wax resist technique; draw your required design, this will add a layer of wax to the surface, then add your colour. The wax layer will resist the coloured pencil thus leaving that part of your drawing white.
With this set, the experimentation is endless.
