Make Your Own Chalk Pastels
« on: August 01, 2012, 11:53:18 PM »
I have heard of others making their own chalk pastels.  Just wondering if anyone has any experience in this?  I'm looking into maybe making some.

Hi Matt,
I've been wondering .... did you ever make any of the soft pastels and if so can you share with us how they worked?  are they messy or sticky?  would love to know before I jump in.

Thanks
