Oh my goodness! I picked up an inexpensive set of fluorescent oil pastels from Dick Blick today and they are amazing! My iPhone fails to capture the glowing awesomeness of this simple little Jack o’ Lantern
The great thing about oil pastels, and the reason I was so excited when I discovered them at the Philadelphia store, is that oil pastels act as a nice resist to paint. The sky, which is much brighter under black light, is a wash of slightly thinned fluorescent blue Golden acrylic over yellow fluorescent stars. I am imagining all sorts of black light projects after this pumpkin thing that I’ve got going on runs it’s course.
