What you need:Coloured Pencil Goldfaber
An effective blend is made by loosely shading over an existing colour of a similar hue or tone; the two mingle and appear as a blend although there are two distinct layers. This is more pronounced when shading on previously coloured paper with a grain, as the pigment sits on the surface and leaves the “dips” in the lower sheet free—the eye will blend two colours used in this way, achieving a lively surface quality.
