Experimenting with watercolor pencils

A few years back I purchased a set of Faber Castell watercolor pencils, but never really enjoyed working with them, until now. I've started experimenting with them on my coloring book illustrations and I'm happy with the results so far.  The trick is to color just as you would with regular color pencils, then use a clean wet brush to blend the pencil strokes. The pigment "melts" when the water touches it. I'll continue to post as I experiment - I've only just begun :-)
