Where do you start, what supplies do you buy if you want to try pastel art?
There are so many answers to that and if you ask that question in any art group on facebook and you may be just as confused by all the answers you will get.
I want to help beginners make affordable choices so they too can enjoy a new art medium and not break the bank! After all, you can’t be sure if you like any medium until you spend some time learning.
This post will go over a few of the pastel paper options I prefer and used when I first learned pastels. Some cost a bit more and some are homemade affordable ways to have lots of pastel surfaces inexpensively.
I have included video links to paper reviews and making homemade papers so you can choose for yourself what works for you.
I hope you find this information useful. I would love to see your art, feel free to join the conversation by leaving comments or questions below.…
