Some handy tips for pastels.

You will need:
  • Oil or chalk pastels
  • Paper
  • Paintbrush
  • Paint
Oil pastels give you deep, vibrant colours and their waxiness means you can use them for lots of different effects.
For example - the oil is water resistant, so you can paint over them without spoiling your picture.
There are also chalk pastels.

These can give your artwork a different feel - a much softer effect.
The dust they make goes a long way - so pictures drawn with pastel are really easy to smudge.

Try it yourself!
