Today we used different materials to blend colors. One of the materials we used was an oil pastel. You use this by starting with the medium value and go in whatever direction the shape goes. Then you add the dark value increasing pressure if you want a darker value. Then you add the white value. When you use oil pastel it is important to have multiple layers to get the value you want. We also used color pencils. I used the prisma color pencil because they have brighter led and are softer to work with. This material requires a specific pressure to get the specific value you want. You press really hard to get a darker value and press lightly to get a light value. We also used chalk pastels. With these you can you your finger to blend the values. Also multiple layers are required to get the value you need too.
