So for those of you that don't know, or haven't seen these two products yet they are both super soft, super creamy crayons that are highly pigmented and react to water. They both come in plastic tubes with lids with twist-able ends to move the product up the tube and are going to be great for all sorts of mixed media applications.
The Tim Holtz Distress crayons were launched this year at the CHA and I took the plunge and bought a set from Blitsy. Then Leandra Franich introduced me to the Crayola Slick Stix as she had them on the PaperArtsy stand, (thanks Leandra for the pack!). Anyway, long story cut not so short, I had to try them both out and share the results with you all didn't I?!
In the video I walk you through both products then test both products in different techniques before giving you a closer look at the results and my personal conclusions about them both.
I tried both crayons on paper, gesso-treated paper and gel medium - treated paper. I used different methods to apply the crayons and then used different ways to manipulate them to see how they work and how they compare to each other.
You can see all the results from the compare and contrasts in the video but here they are again if you need a closer look:
By the way the hedgehogs are from my own PaperArtsy stamps, in case you were wondering!
Enjoy the video and let me know what you think about these two products. Have you tried either of them yet? If you haven't which do you think you might like to try? Let me know and if you have any questions feel free to ask.
