Check Out This Excerpt From Lifelike Drawing in Colored Pencil with Lee Hammond:

Burnishing
When you burnish, you apply colored pencil heavily with a firm pressure that makes the pigment totally cover the paper surface. Because of the wax content of Prismacolor pencils, the pigment goes on with a creamy feel, and the colors become very opaque with the heavy pressure. This can make the colored pencil mimic the look of oil painting, with bright colors and a shiny impression. Many of the subjects I used to paint in oils I now do in colored pencil with similar results.

When you burnish layers of pencil, the colors mix together like paint instead of remaining independent. The texture or grain of the paper is flattened by the pencil pressure, and the pigment and wax of the pencil fill it in completely. When practicing this technique, use pencils with a bit duller point to balance out the heavy pressure of application.

These books are presented in PDF format and are viewable on both MACs and PCs with Adobe Acrobat, a free program.
