  • How To Cast Off Purlwise
    January 22, 2021

    It’s common to cast off stocking stitch knitwise, but you can also cast off stitches purlwise, which leaves a flat neat finish on the purl side. It’s also good to know how to do this in case you need to cast off in pattern, such as on a ribbed collar.

  • All My Watercolor Pencils! Let's compare and see what's good!
    January 19, 2021

    Hi friends! Just a quick disclaimer, I have a lot of supplies, I teach workshops where I have to provide my own supplies and I review art products on my blog and YouTube. I am not sharing this to make anyone feel jealous or to brag. My goal is to hopefully help save you some money so you can buy the perfect supply for your needs the FIRST time. Happy crafting! Watercolor pencils in order or appearance. *denotes my best favorite/recommendation. Affiliate links used. Budget & Craft Grade Pencils *Pagos 72 set: https://amzn.to/3oOrQQ6 *Also available in a set with the 72 colored pencils at a lower per pencil price. I like both of these and the colors match perfectly. https://amzn.to/39BH44l This would be a great starter set. Full reviews here: https://www.youtube.com/c/thefrugalcrafter/search?query=pagos%20review *Arteza 120 (smaller sets available, look for the EXPERT range) https://amzn.to/35JG5hq Prima Marketing: https://amzn.to/2LW7tlb (lots of duplicates between sets, I think these have been discontinued) *Spectrum Noir Aquablend: https://shrsl.com/2qcoh These retail for $39 for a 24 set but Craft Stash has them for $21.69 for the 24 set or $12.99 for the 12 sets. I know there are no duplicates in the 24 sets so you can build your collection as your budget allows) These are the pencils I use the most often and I have been very happy with them https://shrsl.com/2qcoh Artist-grade Pencils Artist-grade watercolor pencils are available open stock so you can buy a couple of pencils to see if you like them before investing in a set or replace a pencil if you use it up without having to rebuy a set. Also, they should have lightfast ratings available that are trustworthy. Keep in mind not all artist grade pencils will be lightfast but checking the ratings can help you avoid these if you wish. Caran Dache Supracolor: https://shrsl.com/2qcox These are not the top of the line watercolor pencils offered by CaranDache but they are pretty good. Caran Dache products tend to run on the high side but they are wonderful. If you are interested in their top of the line watercolor pencil you will want the Museum Aquarelle: https://shrsl.com/2qcp5 I have not used those myself. *Faber Castel Albright Drurer: https://shrsl.com/2qcpa These are my favorite watercolor pencils, they are lightfast, open stock and still a good value, I bought my set of 120 for around $160 over 10 years ago and the price is still around that on Blick. Work will last done with these pencils. Derwent Watercolor Pencils: https://shrsl.com/2qcpi These were my first watercolor pencils more than 20 years ago. They are not bad but there are better choices available now for the price in my opinion, *Derwent Inktense pencils https://shrsl.com/2qcpu and Blocks https://shrsl.com/2qcpy I really love these for the color payout and the fact that I can use them on fabric and they are permanent. A really versatile product! They are available in pan format too: https://shrsl.com/2qcq5 Koh I Noor Mondulez: https://shrsl.com/2qcq8 These are good but come in a smaller color range and open stock is harder to find but available Specialty pencils: Derwent Metallic watercolor pencils (discontinued but you can find old sets with the silver barrels on Amazon, the gold barrels are nor watersoluble) https://amzn.to/35JmG0m Derwent Graphitint: https://shrsl.com/2qcqg Woodless Watercolor pencils (and watercolor crayons that are hard like pencils) Altenew: https://shrsl.com/2kagb *Arteza: https://shrsl.com/2ikc1 (recommendation based on a lower price for equivalent products) Creatacolor https://shrsl.com/2ikbx *see my full comparison to the above 3 products here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BB-b1GWooXY *Jane Davenport/Sargent Art/Mungyo watercolor crayons: https://amzn.to/3nOQXRg (I recommend as an alternative to the discontinued Aquatone pencils) Dina Wakly Scribble Sticks: https://amzn.to/3bJael2 Aquatone (discontuined) *I also compared them to LYRA watercolor crayon https://amzn.to/3hH6tNF which are softer and waxier and I really like them but they are not what I'd call a pencil and also the Caran Dache Neocolor 2 crayons. https://shrsl.com/2pkyw My watercolor crayon comparison: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j13QdqLCUfk #thefrugalcrafter #watercolor #art Want more inspiration?
