Afterwards, you can choose to continue working with one or more techniques on paper or canvas, depending on what you want.

Chalk Copenhagen manufactures sustainable pastel chalks for artist use. The natural pastel chalks are made by hand from chalk from local quarries and beautiful earth colors ranging from black, brown, green, red, orange to chalky white.
