Experimenting with another celtic knot pattern and some silver and copper colouring. Turns out the Moleskine paper doesn’t like my Faber-Castell Polychromos colour pencils much – it doesn’t have sufficient ‘tooth’ to grab the oil based colour. The copper colour in particular was hard to apply as that particular pencil is quite hard and easily damaged the paper’s surface. Ended up switching to a wax-based Karisma copper pencil, which is a bit softer, to colour the semi circles on the outer ring. Unfortunately my little Canon Lite scanner doesn’t deal with these metalic colours all that well, so the copper is showing as a brown and the silver is more of a blue-ish grey. Ah well, I’ll know for next time.
