Hello Friends --I have found when using Uart or wallis paper it is easy to put down pure pigment even after several layer of pastel have been applied. Just use a wet paintbrush and wet the area you want to lay down the pure pigment. Lightly tap with a paper towel , dry the area withba hair dryer and apply the desired pastel. I used this method several times in the following winter scene, "Neighbor's Home". I wanted to lay down some pure white highlights and this process worked very well. ........ regards tom
