    Hi Iris,
    Yes, Linda does some really nice work, she blends with a bristle brush, and her site is where I got the idea, however, she uses a type of sandpaper, which I've never used. I find the method works pretty well on the Canson Mi-tientes paper. I also discovered, by accident, (working outside in the summer) that the method works better, for me, with wax based pencils when the pigment on the paper is warm. Linda always uses prismacolors, I've tried blending Derwent Studio pencils, as well as well as Pablos, and it does still work, although not as well.

    The 16 tips I posted under 'cp-brands, tips, tricks' are also from Linda and the Artist's Magazine.
