Hi Cathy,

I absolutely positively LOVE the chalk pencils.  I use them instead of
using chalks.  They are so easy to blend and use as a highlight.  You
don't have to remember which shade of red that you used that "makeup"
applicator on so you don't smear the chalk or anything.  Oh oh and most
importantly, you don't have to worry about the chalk stain on your
cream carpeting when you drop the chalk pencil.  Yes yes I have done
that and yes yes it is still there 3 years later.  So be very careful
when you drop the hot pink on your carpeting. If you want samples, let
me know and I will send you a picture.

Now pencils, what type of pencils?  Prismacolor?  Watercolor?  Drawing?
 Charcoal?  Let us know and we can all help you there too.  There are
so many talented stampers here that I know they can help you with them

Hope this helps.

Re: How to use chalk and pencils
I love playing with chalks too but have never used the pencils.  It sounds
like they will give a different effect and I love the idea that you can
highlight with it.  I have a set of chalks, each in little square
partitions, that you rub a Q-tip on and then rub it on your cardstock.  You
should spray a fixative on your finished project so it doesn't rub off.   If
you want a brighter color using chalks buy Chalk Blender.  It really
brightens up the chalk so it "pops".  Chalk Blender may be glycerin but I'm
not sure.  Does anyone on this group know?  By the way, if you do decide to
use Chalk Blender use it only on part of your chalk because it has oils in
it that will ruin the chalk for other uses.

Inky Huggz, how do you use chalk pencils, like watercolor crayons but
without the water?

I use the chalk pencils like a colored pencil, but instead of blending
them with a blender pen or gamsol, I use a q-tip.  The nice thing about
the chalk pencils is that you do not have to seal them with hair spray
or fixative.  I just outline what I want to color and blend inward.  It
is nice and i don't have to worry about spraying the chalk and it is a
much smother and well for lack of a better term but softer chalkier
look.  Clear as Mud?

Ha ha.

Re: How to use chalk and pencils
Thanks for the info on the chalk pencils, Inky Huggz.  Sounds great.  I'll
have to see if my craft stores in the area have some so I can use my 40% and
50% coupons.

Hi SAD,

Check out your local Michaels over by the pencils for drawing and such.
 Our Michael's has them by the individual markers, prismacolor pencils
and such.  Good luck you will absolutely love them.

If you have trouble finding them, I know that the Angel Company sells
them.  Check out my website at http://missy.ismyangel.net

When you find them, let me know what you think of them.  I know that
you will want to get rid of all of your other chalks.

Re: How to use chalk and pencils
Thanks for the info on where to look at Michaels.  I think it would be a
good idea to buy one small box and see how I like them before going wild.

You will go wild once you have purchased them and played with them.
Let me know what you think.

Re: How to use chalk and pencils
So...I bought chalk pencils today and immediately went to my craft room to
try them.   I either bought the wrong kind of pencils, used the wrong kind
of cardstock or maybe it's just me.  LOL.  I used them like I do my
watercolor crayons, coloring near the outside edge of the stamped image and
blending towards the center but it left a real dark border along the edge.
Do you have any suggestions as to how I can get the border to blend inward a
little better?  I'm using a Q-tip.
