Pan Pastel Challenge - New Year new Technique
Thanks for all your lovely comments on my blog I really do love reading them so please keep them coming :D
This week the theme on Pan Pastels challenge blog is New Year New Technique... I am very interested at the moment in making different textures with my pastels.. my journal page from the last channel mixed it with gesso so this week i wondered if they would be washable if I mixed them with texture medium!!
So I used a fabric stamp pad (versacraft i believe) and the "under the sea Mae" stamps set and had a go. It was super simple. I literally just used the end of my palette knife to lightly scrape the top of my pan pastel to drops some pigment into my mixing pallete, then adding a bit of textile medium and mixed them till a solid colour.. then used a small paintbrush to colour. I added a darker colour to add some shading too.
