I was just thinking about the pop/soda idea. I grew up calling the whole category "coke" (I'll have a coke please, make it a Diet Sprite). LOL.

So in this technique, you can use pop/soda/coke (pastels/soft pastels/chalk pastels/oil pastels). Am I finally getting it, Jenna?

Thanks for the clarification. I think you could do this with oil pastels and gamsol. Not too sure this would work with body wash.

Y'all are most welcome! Info that isn't shared, isn't worth much.

"Soft Pastels" is SO misleading! Chalks look soft when used & the oil sticks are kind of soft (like glue stick) when you use them. That labeling is less than usless.

I don't know if the oil pastels would work with the body wash, but it sure could be fun to find out! :LOL: The chalk Ps are water soluable, the oil Ps are not & can take some scrubbing to get them off your hands & may leave a stain for awhile. Like I said, VERY different to work with! The supplies are fairly cheap tho', so go ahead & play around with both mediums to see what happens!

These are the ATCs I made for the May ATC Technique Swap. They feature the Body Wash (Faux Soap Stone) Technique. If you received it, be sure to feel the background and notice the soapy-feel.

Default oil vs soft pastels

Wow! I have already learned something new here. I thought they were the same too and I was raised in the West. I am really enjoying reading the posts here, and am jumping in here with my first post!

Hi Pam! Welcome to rubberstampchat. I hope you will try this technique, using whatever kind of pastels you have, and please show us your art. Glad to have you jump right in the discussion.

I went back to look at the original demo piece again and now I realize that the faux brads could be punched from the area that becomes covered by later layers. I know of some who claim to cut out that middle for ATC backgrounds.
