Smiley from Happy Thursday!  Yesterday some of you left comments and sent me emails about the blender pencil for the Prismacolor Pencils.  Thank you Alexandra for this great tip:

Someone asked about a blending pencil in the comments, a wee tip, if you don’t mind me saying is, if you don’t have a blending pencil, which is a colourless wax pencil, as long as the coloured pencils you use are waxy, you can use a light coloured pencil and blend over to create another colour a bit like mixing paint i.e. use yellow then blue meeting together, overlapping softly, then going over with yellow again result is where they cross over it creates a third colour, in this case a rich green, or use a white pencil to blend and you’ll get a softer green. You can change the colour and blend easily depending on how much of a particular colour you use.

Here’s what the blender looks like:
