First steps in painting and Pan Pastels

I decided to do my initial painting with rattle cans, ie Halfords primer, to try colour modulation. Basically I sprayed red oxide from below and then white from above.

It’s a bit crude! I forgot this piece so it ended up grey!

I then used a Tamiya rattle can bright yellow. It wasn’t big enough to do the whole piece so I did the underneath first.

In other news… I was tempted to try Pan Pastels after seeing them used in Modelling with the Masters over styrene to recreate weathered wood. They looked excellent. The price is a bit high though so I’ve been putting it off. On Saturday, I went to a Craft Show with my Mum and one stand had a sale price of £4 which is excellent. I bought 6 greys and rusts.

Sunday, I went to our local garden centre which used to have a craft section but it was shutting down. 75% off everything including Pan Pastels. Let’s just say that at £1.50 each, I now have more than I will probably ever need! Now I just need to learn how to use them properly!
