Mad Aceo: Oil Pastel

Carey and I did an oil pastel theme this week.
I used only Sennelier oil pastels, including my metallics and iridescents. As much as I tried, I just cannot properly work in oil pastel without solvent in the under-layers. Gamsol is wonderful stuff. I also used my grey color shapers, which also work well with the solvent.

  3. I like all of your ATCs. The one with the cactus has an interesting background. Sort of lumpy like some cactus really appear. I like all the different techniques you have used. Fun.


Thanks for stopping by!
