Richly pigmented and ultra-soft! by Georgie Kreutzer on 03 Jul 2018 11:19am

Micador For Artists Soft Pastels have become a staple in my toolbox. They are so richly pigmented and ultra-soft, so if you're after a blendable pastel these are hard to beat. I like to use them as a soft base colour, or blending skin tones, skies, or clouds. I do this by transferring large swathes of colour to the paper using the sides of the stick and blend with a brush or tissue, or grind a little pastel into a powder and transfer with a large, dry brush. The result is a soft, gauzy spread of colour that can be fixed easily with fixative and worked over. (I'd recommend Micador's Workable Matte Fixative for that!).
