Art Pastels FAQs

Soft pastels vs oil pastels

In general, the composition of soft pastels is different to oil pastels, resulting in a different effect. Oil pastels are more creamy and have an oily satin texture, whereas soft pastels are more crumbly, dry and are wonderful to blend.

What surfaces should I use for pastels?

Pastels are very versatile and can be used with a range of different surfaces. Choose a surface with enough 'tooth' meaning that there is enough texture for the pastel to grip. Textured paper is the most common surface used for pastels, watercolour paper is also a suitable and accessible surface for pastels. You can also use unprimed canvases for pastels if you are looking to create a larger artwork!

What other media can I combine pastels with?

Soft pastels are beautiful when combined with watercolours, creating a soft fluid effect. Use a soft paint brush to blend the colours and ensure you work from light to dark in watercolour.
