Here are some samples I made using PanPastel on different projects.
For this decorated candle i stamped onto tissue paper and coloured it with Panpastel.I then cut the image out and placed it onto the candle then i heated it gently till the wax melted and the image sank into the wax.
Well this was a labour of love it's only the second time I have done a large canvas. I started by covering it with a blend of Panpastel and Mica powder.The flourish was hand drawn with glitter pens. I have also added a selection of chipboard shapes which have been coloured with Panpastel.I stamped the fairy and coloured her with pencils and the Dragonfly with glitter pens.The paper flowers and butterfly's have also been Panpastel colored and sprayed with Mica.I have also added a glittered chipboard sentment.
This amazing large canvas was created by my daughter Shannon. he used a Panpastel blend for the base colour added faux leaves and swirls and sentiments and a really pretty glittered chipboard sentiment.She also used flowers etc from my over flowing stash.
This treasure chest was great fun to make its a first for me.I began by covering the chest with torn newspaper and covering it with pva.I then added Panpastel and a mixture of Gold and Bronze acrylic paint.I have added a selection of old jewellery and twine to add to the treasure theme.
The four images above are infact mini canvas designs.I have used several different techniques including stamping,stencilling,heat embossing.They really are fun to make.
The above spooky sign has been coloured using a blend of Black and Orange Panpastel.The pumpkin i used just orange and covered it with Orange glitter i bought this a very long time ago i knew i would use it one day lol.The piccy is my Son Sean and my Daughter Kathryn it was taken last year at Alton Towers.
