gorgeous ! I think it will be very usefull, I find it hard to draw on black paper and pastel isn't my fav technique... great tool this razor blade, I wish I could find something like this to make my pastel sharp ! don't you fin d it difficult to mix soft pastel (in stick) with the pencils ? the texture are different, I find pencils easier to use but to hard on paper and colours ain't so bright than with soft pastels :) :whip: :whip: :hug:

Hey, sorry for the late reply! I don't mix graphite pencils with pastel pencils, as I wrote in the tutorial, I draw pastel pencil lines next to graphite ones. Or I rather used to draw - you see, you may replace pastels with with soft white coloured pencil [e.g. Derwent Coloursoft] or white watercolour pencil [e.g. Koh-I-Noor Mondeluz], it's easier to draw with it! And looks much better! That's why I don't use pastel pencils anymore :)
