We're using a new way to color with soft pastels. Our techniques started with tinting DIY plaster bunnies. They look so vintage, but cost so little!

DIY Chalkware

This coloring technique will works on many matte surfaces, like:

Basically, chalks and pencils will work on any unglazed objects like those shown above, especially with the help of an artist's spray we used called Grumbacher (groom-bok-er) which we'll link to below.


We used the type of chalk that did not feel oily, also called soft pastels.
