Chalk pastels can give great effects when you smudge them with fingers. But they can be messy...

You will need:
  • Chalk pastels
  • Paper
  • Sticky tape
Take a square of paper and roll it on a diagonal into a tight roll.

You need one pointy end, and one slightly wider end.

Tape it together.
The idea is to use the tube of paper to rub and blend the chalk pastels.
Use the wide end for bigger areas of colour...
...and use the pointy end to blend the detail.
It works much better than fingers, because it's more precise, and it's much less messy!

Try it yourself!
