Pastel ~ Nicky

Metallic pastels don't show up in photos, alas.  They're nice and shiny.

Pasteling



Pastel on my darkest print.  Rich gold belt & lights; red coat.



Pastel on my lightest print.  Now to go for something in the middle.



And with a yellow buckle and lights.  They seem brighter.

Steampunk Prints

Finally printed the Nicky and Gabby blocks.  I'll add pastel when they dry.  Careful not to add too much.



Xmas Card Print



Nice.  I printed a handful.  I should be able to add pastel tomorrow or Sun.  Nothing like cutting it close!  Have to order these cards from Vistaprint on Cyber Monday.

Time to Print



Mirror, bw, darker (i.e., faux print).

Either carve some snowflakes in front of the castle (or add them with white pastel).

Time to print.  Play with pastels (red suit, silvery castle, yellow/gold windows, belt buckle, white for gloves).

Faux Print



Dark gloves don't work.  Might try tan, but Jeane suggested white.


I erased the gloves.  I think I like white.  Helps to frame the glove.

More Carving



Getting there.  Might be ready for a test print.  Just a little more on the very fine lines.
