How to use colored pencils
Tips for using colored pencils: A light touch or a certain amount of pressure on the colored pencils can make a big difference! Of course, lighter pencil pressure will produce lighter colors, while heavier hands will produce darker, saturated shades. Most colored pencil gurus prefer to use lighter pressure because it creates a better base for layering color. If you use too much pressure, it will be impossible to lay any extra color on the darker shades. Also, lighter pencil strokes are easier to correct if mistakes are made.
You can take out a color pencil and use different strengths to feel the color changes. You will soon see the difference.

To achieve a certain effect, we can place the paper on a textured surface such as lace, leaves or any other surface with bumps and bumps. Rub colored pencils against the surface of the paper to leave a textured effect.
