From the Introduction

Artists love tools. Things that make the work they do easier, faster, more beautiful. Painters collect brushes and supports to use with all those gorgeous colors.

Sculptors have tools of all sizes and varieties to bring their visions to life.

Colored pencil artists are no different. Boxes full of pencils in a rainbow of colors are just the beginning!

Since colored pencil is a slow medium by nature, colored pencil artists are perhaps more susceptible to looking for methods and tools that make the process faster. It’s natural to want to finish as quickly as possible, if only to get on with the next project!

That includes ways to blend better, faster, more completely.

But what are the best ways to blend? In a world where everything from baby oil to painting solvents are being used by some artist somewhere, how do you know which methods are best? If your work is fine art, what methods are most archival?
