PastelsA Pastel (UK: /pstl/; US: /pstl/) is an art medium in the form of a stick, consisting of pure powdered pigment and a binder. Pastels can be traced back to the 16th century. Its invention is attributed to the German painter Johaim Thiele. Kinds of PastelsThere are three kinds of pastels:Chalk pastelsSoft pastelsOil pastels
Chalk pastels ARE, AS YOU COULD IMAGINE, VERY MUCH LIKE CHALK. THEY ARE, HOWEVER, SOMEWHAT DIFFERENT THAN BOARD OR SIDEWALK CHALK BECAUSE THEY CAN BE SMOOTHED MUCH EASIER THAN CHALK YOU USE ON YOUR DRIVEWAYOil pastels are not like the two others I havementioned. They are much more dense and oily, and the effect on the paper is more vivid color. Also, once applied, you cant generally smooth and blend the colors. The oil pastels that I use come in crayon form.
Soft pastels are actually much like chalk pastels, only they come in pencil, crayon and block form. I really like to use pencil soft pastels as I feel they are the sharpest for fine detail work.Edgar Degas
