tip two


When using chalk pastels…or basically doing any drawing…put a blank piece of paper under your writing hand to keep that hand from smearing what you have already done…works great…

Have foam peanuts from receiving packages?  Make a good use out of some of them…they make great blending tools for chalk pastels and pencil drawings..

Once you have a layer done when using pencil or chalk…but you need to add to it more…spray your piece with fixative…then let dry.  Then start your next layer…This will keep it from smearing the bottom layers..when you add on top..

Pencils!!  Do not waste your money buying fancy smancy pencils…Go to your hobby store…or drug store…Look for pencils for kids…you know the ones that have all the fun colorful sides…and white erasers.  They are very soft…their erasers do not leave smudges on your paper…They are fantastic…and you can sometimes get them four for a dollar…sometimes a whole pack for a buck…
