Show students that they should not dig or use pressure when lifting color as that creates unnecessary dust. 4 Mix colors like paint either on working surface or pan surface Note: traditional color mixing rules apply, e.g. don’t overblend to avoid “mud”. 4 Clean Sofft Tools between colors by wiping gently on a dry paper (kitchen) towel. 4 Clean pan surfaces by gently wiping away any color contamination with a clean Sofft sponge or paper towel. 4 Color layers can be isolated with workable (spray) fixative. 4 Experiment with different surfaces - on smoother surfaces the color lays down in more transparent layers. On textured surfaces the color is more intense as the tooth “grabs” more color. FREE VIDEO TUTORIALS SCAN FOR ALL DEMO. VIDEOS: @JoanneBarby Questions?
