What are Scribble sticks? Quite simply they are sticks of color that are water reactive/soluble which means they react & play with any other mediums such as gelatos, watercolor, distress, dylusions, and so on. What I love about them is how much rich color I get from a small amount. I also love that they are pure color sticks – which means they’re very dry and hard which means I can’t break them and tons of shards don’t go flying like some other mediums.
I find that plain paper works, but I mostly like either treated (matte gel or gesso) paper or smooth surfaces or manila cardstock. I did not have success with these on heavily textured or even moderately textured surfaces. This is important because if you work mostly on paper? These may be the colors for you! But if you like a lot of coloring textures and such… well maybe not.
I created a video to show how I’m using these – here is a link to YouTube.
Below I will also (affiliate links used – thanks in advance for supporting my site!) list supplies used and a special code good at the time I’m posting this to Ellen Hutson’s site! I really am enjoying these colors they are bright and beautiful, and I’m loving that it adds some new (easy to store!) colors to my mix & match stash of mediums.
