If you are going to try this, please do so on a duplicate of a photo or one that you dont mind throwing out, rather than an original. I had to go through a few before it actually worked. I placed a drop of the cocoa butter cream on a laminated surface (so that the cream does not get absorbed) and then rubbed the pencil into the cream to make like a color paste. I used a Q-tip to apply very little and very carefully to the areas that I wanted painted. I used photo-friendly color pencils but wonder if any pencils can be used this way, dont knowthat will be next months experiment, LOL

I hope that you can see the picture attached. Its a little blurry as this is a photo of a photo of a picture..but I think you can appreciate the colors.

BTW I saw somewhere on the web that other people had used petroleum jelly. I didnt try this as I thought it would be too messy. Then, when I was ready to give up, I gave the cocoa butter a shot.
