- Soft pastel sticks allow for better blending, while hard sticks are better for details. Pastels also come as pencils for making fine lines. I used both pencils and sticks.

Pastels are pigments mixed with a binder. Traditionally chalk was used as a binder, but today other materials are also used. Pastels allow you to layer and blend vibrant colors to create a soft look.
It was quite a challenge, because I never used pastels before, but once I started, I enjoyed it so much!
