December's Art Snack

Thursday, January 19, 2017

Happy Thursday, My Lovelies!   I've been spending a little more time lately journaling, painting, and drawing, and I must say that I really enjoyed December's Art Snack.

Here's what's on the Art Snack menu for December:

Caran d'Ache Discovery Set

Magnesium Long Point Sharpener by KUM

Higgins Black Magic Ink Pump Marker

Stabilo Point 88 Fineliner Marker Pen

I've tried all the products except for the Higgins Black Magic Ink Pump Marker.

I have used the Caran d'Ache Neocolor II Artists' Crayons that are water soluble, and I'm a fan.  Also water soluble, these colored pencils are very bright and lovely.  I will enjoy these and will probably buy more in the future.  the set also comes with a Full Blender Bright, but it broke easily.  I don't know if I like that or not.

The sharpener is great, and I also highly recommend the Stabilo Point 88 Fineliner Marker Pen.  I was happy that they sent it in red because I used it for Christmas gift tags.  I want to buy more of these markers, and I'm picky about markers!
Also, each Art Snack comes with a little snack, and I got a little peppermint for December.

Below is a drawing I drew using the Caran d'Ache Supracolor colored pencils:

I also used a graphite pencil since the set didn't come with gray or black.
The vase looks wonky because it is wonky.  I was driving myself crazy sketching it until I reminded myself that MacKenzie-Childs majolica pieces are handmade and hand painted. 


Overall I was very pleased with Art Snacks' December menu.  I will definitely buy more of the colored pencils and markers, and I highly recommend the pencil sharpener.  

Until next time...

    I think this is a fun subscription. My son would enjoy it, he loves art. He is studying Grandma Moses at this time.
