Here's a video tutorial I created on coloring with pastels, SU markers with an aquapainter/water. Whoohoo! It's my first video. I added music and titles rather than talking. I decided to create a video tutorial because it's much easier to show the process of coloring the image versus doing a written tutorial. Just to let you know, the video was edited to shorten the time. The actual coloring time was about 3 minutes. I'll do another video tutorial on coloring with Prismacolor pencils with Gamsol. Stay tuned!
When coloring with pastels on glossy cardstock, the color will be very light. Use a q-tip to rub the color on to the cardstock. The SU marker with the aquapainter/water is used to shade the image. The pastel and the SU marker give the image various shades of similar colors so your colored image don't look flat.
It's important that you don't use an overly glossy cardstock. It'll still work but you may need to rub the pastel in more vigorously than with a low glossy cardstock. Try it out!
