Hello, I am looking for a fine white pen to paint some whiskers on a pastel tiger painting. Will the Pitt Pens go over pastel? If not could you recommend one? Thank you.
Thank you for your enquiry.
Using a white pen over a pastel painting can be problematic as the pen clogs up with the pastel.
There are a number of other products which can be used over a pastel painting.
Hard pastel – these are square pastel which can be purchased in grades in white and black. They are a little harder than soft pastels and enable you add lines, highlights and fine details.
Pastel pencil – can be used as a medium on their own or with soft pastels to add details and highlights.
Gel pen: Silky smooth and ultra-fine, this opaque brilliant white Gelly Roll pen, it is perfect for adding highlights or accents to artwork.
