Red Flower and Tortoise

Red Flower for Ifa - 8.5 x 10.5cm card

I bought new color pencils - CAMPAP. The lead is very soft and easy to blend. I like the richness and intensity of the color it produce, almost like oil pastel. The only thing I don't favor about this color pencil is, the lead breaks easily. Above card is made for Ifa, Rizal's student. Just a small token for her because she was the one who made the rattan frame that I received from Rizal. I hope you like it Ifa! Good Luck on your final assessment!

Tortoise - ATC (2.5 x 3.5")

Finally, my Nature card set, is complete.

I am absolutely enchanted by the ATC's concept... seems like the kind of thing I would enjoy doing...

I am very very interested... what kind of paper do you use?? is it thick or just the normal drawing paper?

setelah saya buka di saya baru tahu kalo 1RM=Rp2800-an. Jadi harga pensilnya sekitar Rp32500.
Termasuk murah tuh kalo isinya 24.
Basisnya air (aquarel) nggak?

hi BCdude,

hi kay,
thanks for commenting and the awards! will place them in my blog soon!

hi pupu!
thanks for the information! they're very interesting! and the noma concours...i'm interested, but i dont know if i have time for that.

hi kak emila!
thanks, yeah i hope she like it.

hi mariuca,
tq! will check ur blog asap.

thanks ernita!

halo antown,
ya, harganya murah jugak kan, tapi sayang mata pensilnya mudah patah. warnanya bagus kan, tp bukan aquarel. untuk yang kura-kura itu, barulah saya guna yg aquarel.

hi baizurah,
yeah, atc swap is fun! i'm sure you'll have great time. join us!

i use few types of paper, depending on the type of media i'm using. but for the atc i use thick paper (watercolor paper).

kak mango , campap yg u pakai tu if dah reput mmg cepat rosak.
Me pun pakai campap , elok jerk..
siap tekan2 atas papar but okies jerk.
u try beli edisi black wood..okies sket kot

mangosteenskin said...

thanks megat, but saya memang pakai yg black wood. x semua warna mudah patah, cuma warna hijau muda tu yg dah pendek sgt. maksud saya dia mudah patah bukan semasa kita menggunakannya. tp dia masih bersifat mcm pensil, kalau terjatuh ke apa lead dia boleh patah kat dalam.

kalau fabercastel watercolor pensil dia saya notice walau terjatuh atau terhempas lead dia masih okay. so far bila diasah, x pernah patah. but x sure dgn pencil color dia yg biasa.
