Ok...I dont if I can do this to use excerpts from his book but the subject matter has cropped up from time to time about fine lines in oil pastels. All pictures below are All rights Reserved 'Oil Pastel' Kenneth Leslie.

Hope that will give us a start in achieving fine lines in OP

Using portions of books for instructional purposes are allowed and you gave proper credit to the author. :)

I have his book and don't remember that portion...I should check it out again!
Thanks for sharing!

Has anyone tried this and gotten it to work well? I attempted to put fine white lines over black and vice versa. In both cases the transferred lines were too faint and they also appeared as double lines. I tried different pressures and used Senns. Hard, student-grade sticks didn't work at all.

I tried it with this piece. It did leave a double line but I took a stub and added where I needed it.

Not perfect, but I like the results.

Well this is very illuminating. Can't thank you enough! Being mostly inclined towards a linear, sketchy approach to my work, I've found the fat pastel form a challenge to get thin lines which are sometimes required in portraiture or figure work. I have to rely on hand pressure variations and finding 'sweet spots/edges' on the stick to get those lines.
