paper, brushes, tips????
What kind of paper can I use for oil pastel? After I finish my 2 water color/acrylics I am working on, I would like to try oil pastel.
I have water color paper. But is there is a better paper to use?
Also, I have brushes that are only for oil paint. Can I use those for oil pastel?
Also, somewhere on the swap thread I saw (already sold) some sponge tipped brushes for oil pastels. I have never noticed those at the art supply store. I am guessing that those are used for blending?
After I sketch out my drawing,probably an old barn, I do the sky first. But how do you make a sky using oil pastel? I am probably going to do the sky in water color first. What do you suggest?
And then if I mix the medium, should I pick what else will be water color before I lay down the oil pastel?
