Re: "How to Get Started in Soft Pastels" for our newbies
I still feel like a yung un around here but would like to offer two cents worth. I am left handed and find it difficult not to drag my hand into my work. I have fashioned an AWL (?sp?) using a bit of pvc pipe we have left over from putting in our backyard sprinklers I think it is 1/2 inch pvc. I cut it to about a foot and a half and placed two rubber cane tips on each end. I picked up the cane tips at Walmart. This way I can reach the center of a piece and easily to add detail, or clean up a spot that I messed up.
I can't work without it now.
