I also do a few projects using color pencils on black. The kids really like
it. They were dull for me at first until I got a hold of some prismacolor
pencils and some prang color pencils. Both have better colors for this kind of
project with the Prismas being the best. I also tell my 8th graders to "Frost
their colors" whenever possible. Meaning to take a white prisma that I keep in
their cans and overlay white on top of the color. When I walk around the room I
will keep reminding them to frost their colors. It becomes the buzz word for
the project.

hope this helps,
