Street Painting Chalk Art | Pastel and Chalk GuideStreet Painting Chalk Art Pastel and Chalk Guide
When I started street painting I relied heavily by the recommendations of other artists of what products to use. I really didn't find a whole lot of information in the beginning, and I soon discovered that not all Chalk/Pastels are created equally. This is a good thing because depending on what kind of surface you are working on will call for different grade of product. And learning what's best to use is just trial and error. Not only that, but artists have different styles and methods they like to use and the products will always reflect that. I'm only 3 years into working with this medium and admittedly so I'm still very much learning, but I figured I would take a stab at writing down an "Art Pastel and Chalk Guide" to help any beginners out there.
Keep in mind I live in the USA, so I'm going to be linking to stores and products I know of in the US. But I'm sure these can be found in your area as well in
