Soft Pastels – Round vs. Square.

Let's have a look at the differences in the use of round and square soft pastels.

Another advantage of square crayons is the possibility of using all the edges of individual sticks, which allow working on a detail (eyes, nose, mouth). Last but not least, square crayons allow better control of the pressure applied on the paper. We draw the details of the drawing that we wish to stand out from the image with the tip of the prism on which we apply more pressure.

Rough drawing surface helps to make the drawing more plastic and it does not smudge at the fingertips and does not dirty as much as when working on smooth surfaces. Frequent withdrawal is important during the drawing of each image, because we perceive it as a whole, we are not absorbed by the detail and we also see errors better.
