Soft Pastels Tutorial


How to create beautiful color fade backgrounds.


I've had several people ask me about how I create these color fade backgrounds when I share pages I've colored from my book Color Your Home Bohemian, so I thought I'd do a quick little video to show you. I use soft pastels, which are kind of like a chalk, and spread the color with my fingertips. Take a look at the video & you'll see what I mean.

I love how quick & easy you can create a beautiful background for your artwork with this method. 

Have you ever used soft pastels before? If not, I recommend playing with them on a piece of scrap paper first, so you can get the feel of them. Give it a go, & tell me what you think. 

Happy Coloring!
