skipolas replied to your post “i think the best thing about ryan cavell is that i can literally…”tfw he’s actually getting really mad
Omg I’ve just caught up. He makes me feel awful about having to live on this disappointing planet alongside such bumbling fools as him. Note how 5 hours on from posting, his status actually has no likes. Noone agrees with whatever point he apparently has made in his revolutionary Facebook-worthy opinion. He got a “Deep :)” but I think that was just Daniel humouring/pitying him. Ground-breaking Sunday morning thoughts, Ryan. Don’t go changing
ssoptimist said: do you have any tips for sharpening watercolor pencils thanks
Yes! Definitely. This is actually something that I’ve struggled with myself. For a long time I had used an electric sharpener for both watercolor and soft core pencils. It was convenient and seemed to do well with preventing breakage. But it was also eating up a lot of pencil, so I switched to a manual sharpener which began many torturous, frustrated months of breaking and wasting leads. I couldn’t figure out what I was doing wrong, and sometimes would break the same pencil two or three times before successfully sharpening it. Then, I found this very informative and fabulously cheesy video. If you can get past her delivery, there are some excellent pointers on sharpening colored pencils. For me the most revolutionary was her suggestion to hold the pencil steady in your non-dominant hand, and twist the sharpener with your dominant hand. Many people (myself included) twist the pencil, which can cause breakage. I spent an hour on Wednesday sharpening all of my pencils (using this sharpener) and had exponentially less breakage than usual. Hope that helps. Good luck!
