Pastels, Pencils and soft Pastels - LOTS o fpeople ask what I use to create my pastel drawing. Well I am still trying out different supplies, and lots of them are slightly different from each other in colour and also hard / softness. But I mostly use these supplies - Carbothello and Derwent pastel pencils for details. Conte sticks to block in. Soft pastels, Like schminke for soft backgrounds also Pan Pastels for soft backgrounds and blocking in. Below are some relevant videos I have on my pastel supplies

How to Sharpen Pastel Pencils
I get asked this a lot - I tested out a lot of sharpeners to find ones that worked well with my pastel pencils, because even though you can sharpen them with a blade - and lots do - I wanted a faster way of doing it. I fond sharpeners that worked - but to keep them sharp, sharpen a graphite pencil in them every few pastel pencils.
