It's All About Colored Pencils!

Creating Textures and Patterns with Colored Pencils

It is important to store your colored pencils in a safe container or holder that is heat and moisture free. But most of all, it is important to keep them in a place that will keep them safe from falling and breaking. The core and the tips of colored pencils are fragile. If you drop your colored pencils, not only can the tips of the colored pencils break, but, in addition, the cores of the colored pencils can loosen or possibly fracture as well. There are several ways to store and keep your colored pencils safe.
