Great Lakes Biplane Suggested Colors:
We suggest using Prismacolor Premiere Colored Pencils and Markers. Visit their Web site for more information about their products. The PC numbers on the chart below are Prismacolor pencil numbers; the PM numbers are the markers. Other art tools needed are a straight-edge and curves. We suggest using Epson ink jet printer "Presentation Paper - Matte." This paper works well with colored pencils and markers. Colors will vary between your color monitor and artwork.
