Just love the bright basic I-Kan'dee chalks.....they are truly bright, and look great on cardstock when making great looking cards....I,personally, like this chalk because I don't get it all over me, like I used to with the short hand-held chalk..:) it isn't that I mind getting my hands dirty, but, I don't like to smear the cards, and with this style, I really don't smear the chalk on the cards..much easier to use. So far, I have all the chalks that I Kan'dee makes, and I love all of them. Great product. Thank you.
I use these to highlight, shade and give depth to my hand crafted cards. The colors are great, true to pan color I was a little disappointed that several of them fell out of their pans the 1st week, but I glued them back in and it was fine. Again, the applicator leaves much to be desired. I prefer to use a soft brush, a cotton swab of my finger to apply. I will purchase these again.
My grandson and I tried a number of different tools to try and get these chalks to work for creating art but all we could get was soft blobs of light color, pretty much what you'd expect when your tool is a essentially a Q-tip. We tried all kinds of brushes and the only thing that worked to get a dark, defined edge was a hard edged watercolor brush using the darkest chalk.
We aren't artists but we like to make art work and we've both used traditional chalk, which provides deep colors and the ability to add distinct gradations of color. This just didn't work for us.
