I love colored pencils, but one thing about them has been bothering me since the beginning. Unlike paint colored pencil can't be layered over and over. It very much shows especially on black paper that colored pencil isn't enough to acheive intense white highlights.
Because of this many artists turn to other mediums like paint and gel pens to add opaque highlights. The problem with this is that switch between the two mediums looks quite obvious in the final piece because of the difference in texture and colored pencil cannot be layered on top or else the paint or gel will come off. Plus, gel pens constantly gel clogged and don’t apply properly to pencil because of the lack of friction.
So, to solve this problem I created Liquid White Colored Pencil®, so you can intensify or create white areas without having a change in texture and once dry, more colored pencil can be layered ON TOP.

Directions: For best results, use product ON TOP of wax-based colored pencils.
After you have finished your colored pencil piece, use Liquid White Colored Pencil and a small brush to intensify white areas or create highlights. Smooth out any lumps that may occur as much as possible to achieve a smooth look. Wait at least an hour or until dry to layer more white pencil on
top. Keep layering back and forth between your own white pencil and Liquid White Colored Pencil
until desired look is achieved. Use a small amount at a time to prevent the paper from warping.
Keep cap closed when not in use to avoid drying out the product.

This is perfect for adding in brighter highlights that you can’t get with just white colored pencil! It’s a lot less harsh than gel pen and more versatile because you can paint it on and layer it. I used it to brighten up some feathers on something I was working on and it was super helpful! Thank you :)

This is such a great product! I’m so excited about it and have already told all of my artist friends about it. Shipping was pricey and cost more than the item, but it was still worth the expense and it arrived super quickly which was a happy surprise given the current circumstances of the world. The product is such a great idea and works fantastically! Even as a newbie to the world of coloured pencils, I already started to get frustrated with the difficulties of creating bright highlights with my white pencil. This is such an inventive product that takes care of a common, annoying problem with coloured pencil art and really elevates your work! The attached photo is my art before and after using Pearl Burnish.

Product recommended to me by Bonny Snowdon for adding whiskers and highlights to animal portraits. Can't wait to use it! Delivery from the USA took a while but it will be worth it.
