Pastel Making....

Last week I had my class making pastels. Some were keen, some weren't. It is a tedious process but it seems it is made more enjoyable by company as all ended up thoroughly enjoying it & the wonderful colours they produced.

Crushing & Grinding

Adding liquid

Dividing the "dough"

Blotting out the excess water



Stick !

This is why you were supposed to be wearing gloves!
Lucky it is a non toxic pigment....
The finished products & some really useful colours

My colours:
"Scrap Brown" a wonderfully useful greyed brown, already much in use !
