Here's an Art Attack trick to help you get vibrant colours from chalk pastels.

You will need:
  • Chalk pastels
  • Water
  • Paper
Here are some ordinary chalk pastels.
They're not the sort of art material you'd think of using for bright, vibrant colours.

Instead, they're great for producing a soft, delicate look to a picture.
But, if you soak a chalk pastel in a beaker of water for a couple of minutes, then dry it off using a paper towel...
...when you use it, the colour will be really bright and vivid!
Don't leave the chalk pastels immersed in water for too long, though - or they'll go all soft and mushy!

Try it yourself!
