*Mixing IT Up*

Over time a few viewers inquired about colors and layering when painting a sculpture with chalk pastels and acrylic paint details.  Best said with photographs, please enjoy*

"Eli" custom sculpture*

Acrylic paint colors used in fine detail

Chalk pastel colors used on body color.  Start pasteling from lightest to dark, at each spray(fixitive) layer keeping your highlight color exposed as you move on.
The dark hooves of a horse sculpture I generally continue with the body base coloring with chalk pastels and later add the acrylic paint details.

For a softer more blended white shading I use chalk pastels.

Some folks like to grind their chalk pastel before hand and place into containers.  I prefer an exacto knife and shave as needed in a upward motion with little pressure.
Many Kind Thanks to my Viewers
