Sharpening my neocolor ii's

For watercoloring, I love to sharpen my neocolor ii crayons so that I can have a little bit more control than when they get down to the nubby stage. In my new Watercolor Play and Discover class, I show you how you can also save the shaving and incorporate those into your work. Sharpening them is easier than you think! Remember the sharpener in the back of a Crayola box?

I use a prismacolor sharpener (the large hole). Make sure to peel back a bit of the paper so that you get an even sharpen.


  1. Listening to your advice and sharpening my most used Neocolor IIs made a huge difference in how possible it was to use them.
    Thanks for the tip !
