Crayons, Again

So I'm still on this crayon kick, and wanted to try various crayons on a pastel ground.  Pastel Ground is a product that Golden makes, which transforms your paper into a toothy pastel paper.

This was my "beginner's luck" piece.  10"x10" on gessoed paper



This is the piece I did in the demo.  I used the materials mentioned in the video, plus various brands of oil pastel.

In this one I'm trying to copy the first piece, at top.
Here is a link to the Cretacolor Monolith pencils.  I think everything else is in my previous post.

  3. Wouldn't gesso have enough 'tooth' to do this?

  6. If you wanted to use bits of these lovely papers in collage over an acrylic base, how would you fix them--especially the Sennelier? Do you know of an oil based fixative spray that works well?
