Caran D’Ache Neocolor II

I bought a set of Caran D’Ache Neocolor II watersoluble crayons. I bought the set of 10, but I’m wishing I had bought 10 individual colors instead. Damn that cute little tin. I’m finding that the 10-piece color selection seems a little too.. bright? They’re difficult to blend, much less look natural. I need to play with them some more. The Neocolor II’s are a strange texture.. most of my experiments have turned out looking like kindergarden drawings.


The left is a stamp that I carved, filled in with some watercolor pencils that I bought recently, and I think the green on the lower is one of the new crayons. The eggs (jelly beans?) on the right are the Neocolor II’s.
