The Magic of Caran D’Ache

When I was a little girl, Halloween was my favorite time of year – Hello Candy! But also, it was a time where I got to write all over my face with NeoPastels by Caran D’Ache. These little magical crayons are water soluble, but have the texture and wearability of oil pastels. They also retain their color value, which is pretty special.

Family Photo 331Halloween is abound and I am reminded of my friends and I coloring all over our faces. I couldn’t find one of me with drawings on, but I found one of Eva and Sara Burger (friends I grew up with)!

A couple of months ago, Kurt started a canvas for Iza. She has been having a blast just being a kid with that crazy artist coming from within. She is a like Jackson Pollock gone wild – crayons flying, arms flailing and a very astute manner of working. She seems to have a game plan in mind!

Caran D'Ache NeoPastels

Living with an artist has huge benefits! We have a large stash of Caran D’Ache Swissmade water soluble pastels at our fingertips. These little buggers go a long way with a little person. They are easy to get out of clothes and since they are water soluble, you can clean a wall and paint over in minutes.
