It is a compulsion

I want all the colors.  I simply HAVE to have them.  I could never be happy with just the box of 8 crayons!  Well, never is too harsh a word.  If I were stuck on a deserted island some where and only had the box of eight crayons I guess I would be happy with them.  It would be better than nothing.  In reality I live in incredible abundance compared to most of the world and I can almost always get what I want.  To that end I had a good mail day as I received my most recent indulgence.

Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils are absolutely scrumptious!  They come in seventy two wonderful colors.  I purchased the largest set I could find last year and then immediately regretted not waiting to find the largest set available.  I should have known better.  I have been purchasing the rest of the colors one by one and now I have the full set. 

I have experimented with using them on silk and really like the results.  I will have to post some of those experiments.

Please do show us what you've done with the watercolor pencils on silk! I'm extremely sensitive to chemicals but I wonder whether I could safely use these on my own textile creations...
