I bought a couple out of curiousity: gold, copper, bronze. They are "just" pencils -not the acrylic ones that are dissolved by water. They don't really adhere to painted surfaces, they are too hard for that. They do look nice on paper.

So I can't just figure out how to use them, or what to use them for. I do build figures, and gold/copper are prominent on Warhammer minis, but I could not get them work so far.

Any ideas? Much appreciated.
