The pencils were tricky to get used to because the first few layers had to be very light. However, once the foundation was set, applying pressure with the lighter colors made these pencils blend as smooth as butter. The background was then colored with Copic colors but I didn't like how dark it was so I went back with some lighter pencils to help lighten it up.
Coloring on the Balsa wood was very enjoyable and I imagine I'll do it again. :D
