The easy feather project, "Are You Ready to Convert?" explores the use of 4 colors in 3 different brands of colored pencils and how to do a basic conversion. The surface is Arches 140 lb. watercolor art board. Order Rembrandt Lyra and Faber-Castell Polychromos below. The watercolors can be purchased in a prepackaged set of 3 colors, plus the iridescent medium. The medium can be reconstituted with water and the medium makes the background and the feathers sparkle and shine!

The third brand of pencils is Prismacolor Premier. These pencils can be purchased at most art supply stores. 938 White, 916 Canary Yellow, 931 Dark Purple, 1027 Peacock Blue.
