Can you use watercolor pencils in coloring books? What about on Amazon Paper?

The answer is YES! I use 3 dollar watercolor pencils in Creative Haven Country Gardens Coloring book.

In this episode of Wind/Wine down Wednesday, I explore watercolor pencils in adult coloring books. The various types of watercolor pencils, different methods to use them, how to blend them and of course how to use them in our adult coloring books- Yup, even the ones with Amazon paper. I do a project at the end with dollar store watercolor pencils in Country Gardens by Creative Haven. With no sealant and no bleed through.

There are only 24 pencils and they are not named or numbered so I have not listed them.

I also colored this cutie in Matchstick Mouse Floral coloring book. I use Albrecht Durer colored pencils in this one.

I am enjoying the ease of using these pencils. They help you lay down color quickly and then can use the pencils dry to add details.
