How do you add color to Twig Pencils?

The first step to adding color to twig pencils is adding either washi tape or painter’s tape to the twigs for where you want the main color to be.

Using your acrylic paint and a paint brush, give your twig pencil a few coats of color.

Before the paint has fully dried remove your tape. This helps prevent any peeling of paint after it dries.

Adding the white tip

After the colorful paint has fully dried, add another layer of tape.  This will be where the white painted tip goes.

Once the paint has all dried, it is time to use your fun twig pencils!

And the best part is you can paint them to match any color palette or decor that you have!

I love all of these, but the gold one might just be my favorite.
