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.
