Quick & Easy Shading Technique

PanPastel Colors are semi-transparent, so they create a perfect color base for applying colored pencils and markers over, for shading effects.

Apply a PanPastel base layer to make shading easier and quicker. Here PanPastel was applied over the entire flower design. Then the petals were partially colored with colored pencils (Orange & Magenta).

All designs featured are from the “Coloring Flower Mandalas” book by Wendy Piersall
