Coloured pencils and babyoil

Polychromos coloured pencils and babyoil, on rather heavy watercolour paper.

I had watched a video on YouTube about using babyoil as a kind of solvent, and also read some threads on Wet Canvas about the same matter. I’d also read – on the website of Faber Castell – that they recommended baby oil as solvent.

So I went to a drugstore on my way home from work and bought a bottle of baby oil, eager to experiment. I used a paper stump to apply the oil to the pigments, and you can see the result of it in the picture above. I am surprised about the intensity of the colour, and will keep on experimenting.

About Ulla Hennig

I live and work in Berlin. Taking photos is one of my hobbies, and writing is one of my hobbies, too. So I decided not only to show some of my pictures here but also present some of the thought which came wth the pictures.
