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.
