Shading figures with pastels?Shading figures with pastels?

Hey everyone. I just wanted to ask the community a quick question because I just got another Link figma today and I want to customise him. I really want to make it look well so I also want to shade him with some pastels.

If anyone has done anything like this before I want to ask, what pastels work best? Soft pastels, hard pastels or oil pastels?

Thanks for reading and thanks in advance!

sailormatlac (4 anos atrás) #3789786I did it on a couple of Love Live Sega prize figures. Before applying pastel, I sprayed them with a matte clear coat (dullcote). When it was done, I sealed the pastel with the same clear. Works wonder in a matter of just a few minutes.

I have heard of that little trick too so I've ordered some mr hobby clear matte spray so I'll definitely do that when it arrives. Thanks for your comment!

domhnulla (4 anos atrás) #3767236Ive only blushed some gks with hard pastels before (which worked super well!), so take my comment with a grain of salt as i have no experience with working with pvc, but i definitively would not recommend oil pastels. given that blushing/shading with pastels works so well because of how tiny the amounts of pigments you use are, the oily blocks of colour oil pastels are would directly counter that advantage of working with pastels imo!
good luck with your project and let us see some pics when ur done :)
indian_summer22 (4 anos atrás) #3767249I'd say soft pastels. I renewed faded blushing on some of my nendos it worked just fine. Be careful not to brush it of though. Hard ones should be fine, but I finde soft pastels easier to work with.
I also recommend not using oily ones
SerpentyleTorc (4 anos atrás) #3767717good luck, and avoid oil. Can't say anything for the soft/hard ones. you could also try conte or charcoal (conte generally gets labeled as drawing pastels???). There might be fewer colours to choose from, but maybe they'll give you a different effect you might like.pikacheese (4 anos atrás) #3780494You can take a look at some tutorials on Google and here at MFC they have tips on how to customize and what works best. Maybe you can also ask them. Sorry if I can't help.
Awesome, I was thinking that soft would be the best as it more or less says it in the name but I might buy a mixture of both hard and soft pastels. I'll definitely avoid the oil ones then. Thanks so much everyone for your help and I'll try my best to take pictures of the progress then submit them all here once it's done. Thanks again!
