Art Tips

Be Gentle with Pastels

When working on pastels, pastel dust often builds up. Your inclination is to blow it away or whack the back of your painting to shake off the loose dust. But either of these remedies may just blow some of your painting away. Be gentle with pastels, use a slanted easel so the dust will fall while working, and then gently tap the back of the painting over a trash can or use an old dry paint brush to brush the pastel dust away from your painting.
