Question Best White Pencil/Marker

Hello dear Artists


What do you use when you want to add some light to your drawings - be them colored pencil or graphite pencil?

I use correction fluid to draw the final light touches but it's not that easy to work with it .. I have tried the Prismacolor Premier White and the Derwent Inktense White pencil but I'm not really satisfied with the results.

Thank you,
Oana

Hi Oana, correction fluid would be okay to use if the piece of artwork is meant to be a temporary piece...the light fastness I think would be very poor and start breaking down, I could be mistaken but I would not want to risk it. I use white gesso, it can be as thick as you need it or add a bit of water to thin it out to be more manageable.

Thank you, George.
I don't like the correction fluid myself as it can get very thick and eventually crack ... I have read about a white gel pen but I haven't found one by now to try it and see how it works. I shall try the white gesso as it seems very manageable. Looking forward to buy one and use it

PS. This is one of my recent drawings where I have tried the correction fluid .. not with such great results, I'm afraid.

I don't know the highlight on the egg looked really nice and it looks to reflect the light greatly. Very nicely done, love the prismacolor pencils...



I would have suggested using a bit of blue for the shadow areas to compliment the oranges in the yoke...but very nicely done.

I normally use Copic Marker, prisma markers and pencil colors for making my drawings.

I use the kneaded erasers for removing color....I found some that don`t leave a film on the paper that shows up during shading. Sometimes drawing is adding to the paper, sometimes it`s taking away.
I have a whole lot of white pencils that I use from different makers including conte pencils, which I use depends on the color of pencils...some colors have a higher wax content than others and I use more than one maker of colored pencils so that makes a difference too so I have to try them until I find one that works, also depends on the paper sometimes.

I agree with Pencils. And, thats a nice egg, one thought, it might be better to work on a paper, or ground that has a contrasting color.

Hey Oana, Ive used a white Sharpie oil paint pen, (hobby lobby- michaels) works great for white detailing- really smooth and super white
