Have you tried the Tim Holtz Distress Crayons yet?

Did you see Tim Holtz display these new Distress Crayons at CHA 2016?  Here’s a video from Scrapbooking.com http://youtu.be/JD852lg4gDsimage

I’ve been watching many videos and even taken a workshop on these crayons to figure out what they are and how they work.  Right now I’d say they have similar qualities to a Gelato stick but they’re not as fluid for watercoloring.  I also think they don’t move as nicely with your finger as Gelatos do but I really like that you can coloring a background, but a distress ink over them, do a water splattering and the crayon colors won’t be effected underneath.

I had mentioned going to a workshop where we had created the March Tim Holtz tag specifically using the crayons.  Here’s my tag

I used the set that was more deep Fall colors and moved the colors around with my fingers. I didn’t feel they blended well so we added water and it did better but not perfect.  I have to say I really like the way these crayons work, a lot like Gelatos.

I definitely recommend if you like water coloring that you give these crayons a try.

hope this inspires you! Have a magical day!
