This article from Artist Network explains that due to the nature of pastels as a dry medium applied in a stick form, pastelists have had to learn to marry traditional drawing and wet painting techniques such as blending, scumbling, glazing, hatching, cross-hatching and feathering to facilitate their needs.Most of these techniques fall under the category of layering, in which one pastel is applied over, or into, another.
