Colored Pencil Supplies

Colored Pencils:  Many fine art stores will offer a variety of colored pencils to choose from.  For my classes I recommend Faber-Castell Polychromos, Caran d’Ache Luminance.  If you're wanting a less expensive brand you could use Prismacolor Colored pencil sets, they're acceptable when just starting out.  

Paper:  Heavyweight art paper in medium or smooth finish. I prefer Stonehenge paper.  But watercolor paper should be fine also.

Pencil Sharpeners:  Hand held or electric should do the job.  My preference is the Super Point made by Derwent.

Tape:  Masking tape or any type of low tack tape.

Eraser:  One kneaded eraser, and some type of plastic or vinyl eraser.  You can also use a battery operated eraser.

Solvents:  To apply a more painterly look to your work, I use Gamsol.  You can use any cheap water color type of brush for applying Gamsol.  Gamsol is an odorless mineral spirit.

Dusting Brush:  Brush for removing dust and erasers from drawing.

Clipboard:  Any type of clipboard that is larger than the paper you are drawing on.
