Prismacolor & Odorless Mineral Spirits

I had heard about Gamsol and Prismacolor pencils, but wasn't really sure of the specifics. I asked JoAnna at our last crop and she gave me the info! I researched it a little bit more and I *LOVE* this technique!!
Using the Odorless Mineral Spirits (I used the Mona Lisa brand paint thinner from Hobby Lobby) blends the Prismacolor pencils beautifully. It makes the colors blend and have a creamy look to them. Here are the first 2 images that I did. I apologize that the images are a little blurry. Let me know what you think!!
