Combine the familiar charm of crayons with "grown-up" art techniques for surprisingly realistic results.

Your old childhood coloring friends are all grown up!

  • 29 step-by-step demonstrations cover a wide range of subjects -- still life, landscapes, animals and people
  • Simple blending, layering and burnishing techniques translate into remarkable realistic drawings
  • Hammond's graphing and "puzzle piece" theories help you draw any subject with true-to-life results
  • Features great tricks you can pass along to crayon lovers in your life, regardless of age
You simply won't believe what you can accomplish with this familiar and affordable medium.  Rediscover the creative thrill of opening the "big box," and infuse your art with a fresh sense of play.
