Oil pastels today - I pulled them out of the drawer where they've been a little neglected. As I was hurting my finger trying to smudge them, I remembered another almost-forgotten supply: a blending stump. That was much better.
The thing I had to remember was that you can't just go over the top of the pastels like you can with acrylics as they blend rather than covering.
Almost there with the 29 Faces challenge now. See who else has kept up by clicking the button in the sidebar.
