Chrissy has been sharing her techniques for using PanPastel Colors regularly in her YouTube videos. During this livestream event Chrissy will be joined by Berni Ward Co-creator of PanPastel for a short discussion about PanPastel. This is a great opportunity for you to ask questions directly and to learn more the creative possibilities that can be achieved with PanPastel Colors.
“I have been using PanPastel Colors for several years and in that time have developed techniques that suit the way I paint. Together with coloured pencil, soft pastels and most of all pastel pencils have given me the edge/style for pieces I never thought I could paint.
PanPastel has taken my work to a whole new level and has given me the skill to go beyond what a soft pastel stick can do for example the colour mixing feature (such a light bulb moment) which mimics wet paint except it is dry, and the ability to work with them anywhere from 85-100% sometimes without adding other mediums in each of my projects. I hope to explore even more techniques in the future as the possibilities are endless.”
