Description


Sticks of soft pastel are made from pure pigment powder blended in a clay binder. They are essentially lightly compressed sticks of powder with the ability to deposit strokes of intense colour. They are usually applied to textured paper or card by hand, and can be blended with fingers, a paper stump or a colour shaper. A variety of liquids can be applied to soft pastel to aid blending, including water, rubbing alcohol, acetone and oil painting solvents. However problems may arise if the surface you work on is not resistant to your blending liquid, so it is always worth checking before you start work. Because of the lack of need for brushes or tools, they are the most tactile and immediate colour form that artists can use. When using certain purpose made surfaces, pastel can be built up in layers on a surface, allowing you to control blends and textures. You can apply fixative to protect layers while you are working, and also to finished work. Unlike oil, acrylic or watercolour paint, there is no way to pre-mix colours prior to applying it to your work; modifications to colours are made through layering different shades over one another on the work itself.
