An artist friend of mine recently turned me on to using Caran d' Ache water-soluble wax pastels. Along with these and acrylic paints I created this page in my journal. I am having a great time experimenting with the wax pastels - they add another interesting layer in mixed media pieces.

Hope you like it...

This is a really nice piece. Is the background the wax pastels and the red border and black the acrylic? I was wondering how big this is too. I like it a lot.

Hi GumInMyHair (love that!)
First of all...Thank You!

This piece is a page in my visual journal and measures 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".
The red and black are acrylic paints - and under the pastels there are also several layers of different colored acrylics...white, light orange, yellow, violet, antique white....I tend to build a lot of layers in my work Smiley

I love the effect.  I use Oil Pastels with Watercolor all the time.  I'd like to give Caran D'Ache a try, thanks for posting.

I have never heard of wax pastels either...I have always been a chalk pastel girl myself.  But I am going to have to look into these wax pastels.

The page is beautiful as always.  You are an amazing artist!  Did you go to school for art?  Because you truly have an eye for composition, color, and design.  Your work would easily sell!  Great job as usual!
