Proponents of Christmas stories say you will get lumps of coal in your Christmas stocking if you have been bad that year.
Here’s the kind of coal lump I’d be happy about receiving: a charcoal colored eye pencil.
This one is made using a base I developed earlier this year (and featured on this blog right here), and the pigments is a mix of oxides and micas.
I make my own eyebrow pencils – partly because I get itchy eyebrows from most commercially made products (yes, really) and because I gave up trying to find the right shade of anything years ago.
After years of practice, it’s now much easier to make my own, so this is little charcoal gift is just for me.
