      Hi Arthur, I find the Pencils give a nice Soft Color. The Daughter thinks so also. I guess another way to Soften the Colors would be to Dilute the Paint. May have to try that. Thanks Arthur. Merle

                Merle, you probably know this but there are two types of colored pencils one is watercolor pencils and the other is oil based pencils. I would think that the oil based pencils would be less likely for the colors to run. I have oil base colored pencils, but haven't used them on wood. I do like the result you got with your Eagle.
                I was at Hobby Lobby today and could not find any oil based pencils. Can you give me a specific brand or link to some?

                  Hi Nomad: I use Berol Prismacolor and Sanford Prismacolor.....they appear more waxy but do have oil as part of their ingredients. They can be used with turpenoid (orderless turpentine)....There is a colored pencil that is waterbased but I don't think it works that well with wood and woodfinishes. The is also a oil pastel stick (crayon) that works really well with turpentine mostly used for washes of color. Hope this helps

                  Unlike graphite and charcoal pencils, colored pencils' cores arewax- or oil-based and contain varying proportions of pigments, additives, and binding agents. Water-soluble (watercolor) pencils and pastel pencils are also manufactured as well as colored leads for mechanical pencils. Colored pencil - Wikipedia

                  www.dickblick.com Online has a beautiful selection of colored pencils and pricing is pretty good. Any good art store should have these pencils.

                    Thanks for the great info Kathy! I have some Bruynzeel colored pencils made in Holland that I bought over 20 years ago but I don't know what their composition is. I will try to find it online.

                      Hi Terry, I got mine at an Art Store. They are made by " General's " Multichrome coloring Pencils. They can be used on Wood by dipping the Pencil in Turpentine and then mark on Wood ,or Color with a blunt tip on Wood then dip a Paint Brush in Turpentine and then Brush over colored area. Hope this helps , if not let me know. Kathy has good info. on the Pencils also. Merle
