Has anyone ever used CP with pastels and if so how did you fare?
I've heard of this combination before, but wonder how effective it is.

cheers,
Mo.

I haven't tried it yet, but I know it has been done.

Yep, sure have... I was a colored pencil artist before I took up pastels. I found that by putting white pastel under the colored pencil on a black surface it made the pencils much more vibrant....

All the white in this pic has a pastel base with Prismacolor wax based pencil over the top....

It helps to stabilize the pastel by spraying lightly with fixative before applying the pencil... I'm not sure if this is what you were asking but this is my experience.

Cheers,
