Art Tools - Mixed Media Art Questions

submitted by Muriel White from Alberta, Canada

Art Question:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ive seen you use a tool in some of your videos that looks like a palette knife but it isn't one. The tool has a handle and then a little shelf (?) is on the end of it. You used it to rub on a product which is in a round flat container and then you applied it to the art piece (paper) you were ceating. It is very difficult to describe. I am new at finding things on the internet so I don't remember which video it was on - could be the journaling.

Answer:
~~~~~~~~~
From your description I would venture a guess that you are talking about the Pan Pastel Paints which come in a little round container which looks much like a make up jar and the applicator that is used to apply the pan pastels is a light blue in colour. Various tips can be attached to it depending on what kind of effect one wants to achieve

Some of the applicator tips have a foam cover which is put over the actual plastic applicator which in turn takes on the pan pastel color and can then be smeared on on art journal page, a canvas , pastel paper etc.

The difference between Pan Pastels and ordinary pastels is that they are not as powdery and have more or a bound consistency but are not a paint either, but rather a unique art product in itself. The applicators can really only be used with Pan pastels, maybe also to smudge other types of pastels but are quite fragile so not suitable for use with acrylic paints etc.

Hope this helps
