This is my first project using them. Of course I had to throw in paint, ink, molding paste and other fun goodies as well. All in all, a super forgiving media that's lots of fun to play with.
|Lots of texture and paint drippy goodness.|
|Before starting, I loaded up the blank page with lots of thick gesso. The result is lots of lines of texture that were a nice ground for the pan pastels. You can see these lines in the yellow part of the background.|
|I used molding paste through a stencil to get these raised impressions. Pan pastels work great over the tops of the molding paste sections.|
|A good starting place. Lots of spray ink, pan pastels, and gesso.|
|Focal point details. The butterflies are made of wood.|
