Materials for a Sunset Drawing
- Pencil. The Ticonderoga brand are the most trusted, make good dark lines when you want them, and are the easiest to erase. Buying the pre-sharpened ones will save busy teachers a lot of time.
- Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a substantially greater job than just the pencil tip erasers, specially when erasing leftover pencil lines soon after tracing.
- Black Sharpie Marker. These fine point permanent marker pens make good black outlines, have a very good tip for coloring, and by no means bleed when they get wet. Use them with very good ventilation and add added paper underneath to safeguard your tables.
- Prang Crayons. These are a bit softer than other crayons so they from time to time appear like oil pastels. They also have a some good brown shades that Crayola does not have unless you purchase their bigger boxes.
- Crayola Crayons. The trusted brand that often operates properly. The 24 pack has some of my favourite golden orange and yellow colors that look a bit richer and warmer than the ones Prang has.
