Watercolor Pencil Tips

Hi Friends!
It's Simple Saturday so I have another tip and/or
technique video for you.
(simply scroll down to the video if you would like)
Today's tutorial includes several tips on how to use
STAMPIN' UP!'S WATERCOLOR PENCILS.
These tips will work for any watercolor pencils, but Stampin' Up! has really great, 
highly pigmented pencils that perfectly match the Stampin' Up!
colors.
In this video I demonstrate several ways to apply color to your
watercolor paper within a stamped image.
When watercoloring a stamped image, there are two kinds of in I recommend:
These are both waterproof once dry without having to heat set them.
STāzON JET BLACK INK is a great choice for red rubber stamps whether they be cling mounted 
or wood mounted.
STāzON HAS A SPECIAL CLEANING PRODUCT that can only be used on red rubber.  
That's not to say that you can't use STāzON INK with Photo polymer stamps, you just can't use the
cleaner because the cleaner will harm the stamps.
Should you use STāzON INK,with your Photo-polymer stamps, be sure to use the
STAMPIN'  MIST along with the STAMPIN' SCRUB directly after stamping to thoroughly
clean the STāzON ink off of your stamp. 
Whereas,
MEMENTO TUXEDO BLACK may be cleaned simply by using a SIMPLY SHAMMY,
baby wipe, or of course the STAMPIN'  MIST & STAMPIN' SCRUB.
I always recommend "swatching" out your pencils and activating them with water before you
use them.  By doing this, you will always have a quick reference to the true color of your pencil.
You should also create your swatches on the type of Watercolor Paper you think you will mostly use.
I also recommend always using a manual pencil sharpener to sharpen your pencils because they have a very soft core and an electric sharpen may prove too be aggressive as well as having less control while you are sharpening.
THESE 3 TOOLS WORK WELL WITH STAMPIN' UP!'S WATERCOLOR PENCILS:
1.  AQUA PAINTERS (Which are pens that you fill with water and the water is dispersed though the built-in brush tip at the ends).

2.  BLENDER PENS  ( which Combine the flexibility of watercolors with the convenience of markers. These dual-tipped pens are filled with specialized solution to blend ink easily.)

3. Regular Watercolor Brushes and  water buckets that can be found at any art supply store or online.




Please feel free to take a screen shot to include this photo.  It may help you as a reference in the future.
 (Blender Pens are not shown or demonstrated because mine are about 15 years old and they need to be replaced.)
