How to sharpen a colored pencil. This is life changing. Seriously.

Several ways to sharpen a colored pencil! the colored pencil in one hand and the pencil sharpener in the other hand, and then turn the pencil sharpener, while holding the colored pencil still.

I use Derwent watercolor pencils and Derwent Inktense pencils (ink that is permanent color ). I use the dry pencils to color/shade the design. Then I brush on aloe vera gel using a very short, small, stiff brush. The gel activates the color, so it goes into the fabric but prevents bleeding. Water is very hard to control and will allow the color to bleed.
