One thought on “Ceracolors awarded Special Recognition

  1. Just got some Ceracolors new water-soluble wax paint and love them. Did a couple quick sketches with them today and see a lot of potential. Would like to find out as much about them as I can, such as do they need to be displayed like oils (not under glass), what they can be mixed with.
    Did a sketch in Indian ink then painted over it with ceracolor and it looks great.
    Any links on infer nation would be helpful.
