Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust

Here’s one of my recent pastels on black velvet pastel paper.  I used soft pastel sticks (Rembrandt and a cheaper brand that I don’t remember) and Faber-Castell Pitt pastel pencils.  For many of the stars and clusters, I used sandpaper and sanded some of the pigment from the soft pastel sticks then gently poured it in a concentrated area on the paper.  Most of the blending was done with my fingers but I did use a blending stump a little.

(Note: I tried to upload a video that shows the creation of this but it was too big!  LOL!)
