Useful Tips

Have you tried sanded pastel paper? It's so much fun!

The example on the left
was done on Art Spectrum Colourfix Coated Pastel Paper with Neocolor II.

First apply crayon on the cool zone, move the paper to the warm zone and blend with a colour shaper. The crayon will melt and quickly saturate the area.
