Oil pastels - Started: 13th February 2013
Hi Noel I really enjoyed your oil pastel review video, thanks, I too use Neopastels and Sennelier, I do a lot of blending using a colour shaper or my fingers, it does get messy but I find baby wipes are great for cleaning my hands, I also use scraps of mount board painted on both sides with clear colourfix primer to prevent warping i sometimes tint the primer with paint, I also find that oil pastels work lovely on top of a gouache under painting. Have you tried the Holbein oil pastels? people in America say they are great, haven't been able to find a supplier of them in the UK.

keeping tubes of gouache from drying out - Started: 5th February 2013
Don't use gouache much so the tube paints dry out before I've used much at all. Anyone had experience with this and have ideas on how to remedy?

Is it a problem that acrylics dry so fast? - Started: 14th November 2011
What are your ideas on making acrylics easier to use, and slower to dry? Check out the Reviews tab to see the video about Golden "open" acrylics. Anybody used them?

Is it worth paying extra for - Started: 19th August 2011
I bought a tube of Vasari oil paint. Very expensive. Was it worth the extra. Personally, no, I don't think so. Do you think it's worth paying extra for top oil and watercolor brands? Do you have any recommendations, or colors that you find particularly useful?
