Pastel reduction drawing - 21st Apr 2020

In these videos Erin explains how to do a reduction drawing using chalk pastel. She starts with a piece of paper and covers it in red pastel. A solid block of red colour covers the whole page. She then uses a rubber to create the outline of the scissors. These are placed under the paper.

Here is Erin's post originally on the Artsenta Facebook page:

Hi guys, Erin here. I am just going to post a photo of some of the scissors from my scissor collection. After that I will post a couple of very quick videos on 2 reduction chalk pastel drawings I have made using the silver coloured dressmaking scissors. If you decide to have a go at this process make sure to put newspaper down on your table or floor first as when you rub away the chalk pastel the dust gets everywhere. You can wash your eraser clean with soap and warm water then rub of any left over colour on a scrap piece of paper. Have fun
