Colored pencil

A colored pencil (US-English), coloured pencil (UK-English, Canada-English), pencil crayon (UK-English, Canada-English), lead or coloured/colouring lead (Newfoundland-English) is an art medium constructed of a narrow, pigmented core encased in a wooden cylindrical case. Unlike graphite and charcoal pencils, colored pencils’ cores are wax- or oil-based and contain varying proportions of pigments, additives, and binding agents. Water-soluble (watercolor) pencils and pastel pencils are also manufactured as well as colored leads for mechanical pencils.

Crayon Royals: Blue Duchess

Chronigically the 2nd royal I made but the first to be posted. Full Name: Blumhilde de Kunze Age: A real lady never reveals her age~ Likes: Inventing things, tea time, alone time Dislikes: Socializing in general, being interrupted or bothered, prunes Description: Lady de Kunze is a brilliant inventor despite the hindrance of her social status expected of a high-class woman. She rather spend her time tinkering with her clockwork inventions than waste it on "a vain attempt in fraternizing with potential suitors" severely pressed upon by Mama. Her means of communication with others are through her beloved clockwork owl she name Einstein, whom she gives to and receives a letter from. Big practitioner of personal space by the way.
