Hi friends! I have another pastel tutorial for you tonight, this time using Pan Pastels. Many people dislike the scratchy sound pastels make and even more folks dislike getting their hands chalky and dirty. Well, this is the solution to your problem!
I really enjoy using Pan Pastels. They are expensive but you can do so much with a thin layer of media that I think they are cost effective over some other pastels in the long run. Watch the video for a full beginner tutorial. Feel free to replicate this in regular soft pastels or oil pastels if that is what you have. Always use what you have, I am trying to show you what is out there so you can decide what is best for you instead of you buying tons of stuff that is not right for you.

Do you have Pan Pastels? What do you think of them? You can also follow along with an oil painting or acrylic painting tutorial with them as you apply them in the same manner, I think it makes them very versatile and the palette is always ready with no worry about paint drying out. Thanks for painting with me tonight and til next time happy crafting!
