Nexus Top Tips:

  • The colours can be laid on top of each other to great effect. Use a sharp implement to remove the top layer to create a scratchboard effect picture ( then place face down onto white new paper rub with a pencil to print. For best results use light colours first then overlay with dark and only use on absorbent materials like paper and card.
  • Pastels always remain water-soluble use a paintbrush and water to enabling watercolour effects to be created.
  • Stencilling - Use plastic sheet provided and scissors. Fold plastic sheet cut out a shape place pastels onto plastic around the shape and place onto white paper, with finger rub pastel colour off the plastic onto the paper underneath
