View Full Version : pastel surfaces

Has anyone tried using pastels on silk? I tried it for the first time on habotai silk which I adhered to a gessoed masonite board. I was using this surface for acrylics but decided to try it for pastels. I am having trouble getting any detail or definition though; it is great for an ethereal, blended work. I am just wondering if anyone else has tried it.
