    very nice sword. I just finished an oil pastel myself. I received a small set as a gift and I was not too familiar with them, After I laid the colors down I used a little turpentine with a brush and blended it very loose. I will post it later after I take a picture of it.

  • Thank you for the tip Marita.I must try that sometime.Look forward to seeing your pastel

    hi Peter this subject really suits your style so much. looks fabulous.re the turps I was shown to use a rag to wipe the layers in ,we used Litho Paper[shiny side] it takes wetting quite well although I have 25 year old charcoal drawings are a bit fragile now. I haven’t had time to do any for years even though it’s not long since I bought a new packet.

  • Thank you for your kind feedback ginnymac.It is a long time since i used charcoal.I must have another go,even though i am very messy with it .Re the turps i will have to wear a mask as it gets on my chest….diddumms bless him…. cough cough
