June 2015 meeting

GAMSOL or odorless mineral spirits were brought to our attention by Patricia's sister-in-law. Used over top of coloured pencil work, it melts the wax base and leaved the work resembling watercolour. Although, even with the odor removed, these products are still toxic, so members were cautioned to dab their q-tip with the liquid and then return the cap to their bottles.

I decided to take this a step further and tried it with all the different kinds of coloured pencils I had at the time..........

Obviously, I have to come up with at least three more kinds if I am to do this sort of thing again! Something else to try would be different papers with the different brands of coloured pencil.
