Playing with my metallics ~ PanPastels. They shimmer but that doesn't come across in a still pic. Maybe I'll take a movie with my phone.
Here's another one:
This one's a scan. Still no shimmer. Oh well. It's purdy in person. ;- ]

Today's pan-pastel paleo-dragon.
More pastely. I like this one better than last week's. Also I discovered it's a crisper print to begin with. I started with a taupey-gray print. Tina had me lighten up the cave opening 'cuz it was competing with the dragon.
I picked up some more pastels. I need a couple more. Of course I do. ;- j

Colored a bw Paleo-Dragon print with PanPastels. Learned a lot.
I used 3 colors: yellow, red & purple. I'd like something darker and something lighter to play with.
This is more or less what it looked like before I colored it. It was a little more tan and lighter.

Vista Print thumbprint image
Yay! Cards came back from Vista Print and they're great! Thumbprint doesn't do them justice. I can scan one in, but basically it looks like the woodcut.
"Christmas Snack" for Schuyler House 2014
I ordered 100 blank cards for my growing collection. One of these days I'll remember to offer them on etsy in time for folks to buy them for xmas. I have 4 different cards available now. ;- j
I'm really pleased with this approach. I carved a black and white image ~ my wheelhouse ~ and then added pastels afterwards. Works best with a print that isn't saturated. A lighter print than I'd be happy with. Worked great for the xmas cards 'cuz I could saturate the colors on the scan before I submitted it. Worked great.
I'll have to see if I can add pastels to a darker print now that it's had time to dry thoroughly. I'm liking the pastel approach. 8-]
