    1. I have seen some other videos blending the oil pastels with your fingers so i tried it and put alot of oil pastel in one area but it is not blending. the only thing i can think of is that they may be to old or too cold from being outside in the shed. Can you tell my your thoughts. Thank you

    5. That’s interesting that you have 90 pastels for just portraits, when my college only had us get 16. I think that’s why I’m so much more confused because I have no earthly clue how to get the correct colors for flesh tones.
