Colored pencil blending
Started drawing again. Just graphite for now. But would like to know what colored pencils to use for drawing that will work with blending stumps and tortillions

Utilized for blending graphite. Stumps are for the most part twofold finished, bigger and bulkier than the better single-finished tortillons. Both have their individual uses in spite of the fact that I tend to utilize just tortillons - for coarse work I wrap kitchen paper around my finger and utilize that. Never utilize your unprotected finger to mix graphite. The regular oil in your skin will make graphite adhere to your paper in sporadic patches. It once took me two days to continually tone and mix around such a zone before it ended up unnoticeable...

I don't think colored pencils work with those. They are for graphite. You blend colored pencils with either a white pencil or a special non-colored pencil blender.

Colored lightly, prismacolor verithin pencils erase well. These would be great for laying a base layer, designing the drawing, and start filling in the little white bits.

I have been able to get blending with my colored pencils by just using several colors and using light strokes, with slightly darker strokes where I want more of a certain color. So basically, I layer the colors. And depending on what I am coloring, I either do it light first and then gradually darker, or if I am trying to get a gradient type look, I will do the darker first and then use gradually lighter colors.
