In this instructable, I will show you ten different ways that you can use Connetix pastels. Some of these ideas are my own and some are from other people that I have seen online.
Connetix pastels are a great way to add color to your projects without having to use paint or other messy materials. They can be used on paper, cardboard, wood, and even glass.
- Make a pretty background for your artwork:
Connetix pastels are perfect for creating a beautiful background for your artwork. Use them to add color and texture to your paper or canvas, and then build your painting or drawing on top.
- Draw a picture:
You can use Connetix pastels to draw all sorts of pictures, from landscapes to portraits. Just start drawing with the lightest colors and then add darker shades as you go.
- Write a letter:
Connetix pastels make beautiful, colorful letters. Write a special message to a friend or loved one, or just write your name in pretty colors.
- Make a card:
Use Connetix pastels to make your unique greeting cards. Just draw or write a message on some cardstock, and then decorate the front with your pastels.
- Decorate a picture frame:
Frame your favorite artwork or photos with a colorful border made from Connetix pastels. Just trace around the edge of the frame with your pastels, and then fill in the space with whatever colors you like.
- Make a mural:
Cover a whole wall with a mural made from Connetix pastels. Draw or paint whatever scene you like, and then fill in the rest with your pastels.
- Decorate a room:
Add some color and personality to your room by decorating the walls with connetix pastel 120. Draw or paint whatever design you like, and then fill in the rest with your pastels.
- Make a sculpture:
Form Connetix pastels into any shape you like, and then use them to decorate a sculpture or piece of pottery. You can use the clay-like dough to mold a sculpture or create a flat surface to add pastel colors to. Once you’re happy with your design, bake the clay at home in your oven, and the colors will be set permanently.
- Make a mobile:
Create a mobile out of Connetix pastels by stringing them together with thread or fishing line. Hang them from the ceiling or in a window, and watch them spin and sway in the breeze.
- Give a gift:
Connetix pastels make a great gift for any occasion. Just wrap them up in some pretty paper, and then add a personal message with your pastels.
They are also perfect for adding highlights and shadows to your work and can be used to create a variety of effects. They come in 12 colors, and each color has a unique, velvety texture. The pastels are soft and easy to blend, and they can be used wet or dry. The set includes a handy storage tin, so you can keep your pastels organized and protected.
