Thanks! You may have to take a bit different steps with coloured pencil. I used my electric eraser in my "Aquamarine" (the bubbles) but I couldn't remove the pigment so well. I wonder... if you clolour around sparkles/dots, then use an electric eraser to lift some pigment off around the sparkles, you may get the same effect as you lift graphite off the paper with a kneaded eraser. I may try that in my next piece.
look forward to seeing this masterpiece...i feel like working with coloured pencils next...if i want some sparkles in the piece i normally get a white pencil and draw teh circles/dots in very hard so i can draw over the areas...but that only works for small drawings!
i love this tutorial so much thank you so much for letting me know about the derwent electric eraser it's one art tool i love using and makes easier and special effects so much easier,thanks for sharing this
