hello everyone! this tuttorial is about preparing your chalk pastels and using them to create the soft airbrush effect.
these are the chalk pastels I use. they’re by Winsor&Newton and they’re called Artists’Soft Pastels. I like these because the pigments are strong and they show well.
pick your colors, remove the paper wraps, and get a cutter (or a different sharp edge of your choice). scrape off the chalk pastel from the sides using the cutter till you get a nice soft powder. try to not create chunks of chalk because that could ruin the soft effect when you use it.
for storing I like to put the powder in these little plastic containers. you can prepare large amounts of chalk powders for future use to prevent creating a mess everytime.
here I used this powder using 3 different brush types and sizes. each one creates a different effect and density of color.
hope that was useful!
