Impressionistic pottery – Bible Journaling, Prima Oil Pastels


Hello friends! I’m traveling and teaching this weekend – including a Bible journaling class. Figured it’s as good a time as any to share another technique for my fellow Bible artists!

Impressionistic Pottery

While I created images – though simple ones – this technique can also be used for simple color washes. It’s much faster than many other mediums, and can create a textured look like this, or a softer watercolor look that you can see in the early stages in the video. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

In any case – the Prima oil pastels used here are a good bargain for the color you get – I’m traveling with mine and a pack of baby wipes! The chart below is one I’ve shared before with the colors, in case that’s helpful for you:

  6. That is beautiful art for a beautiful Bible journaling message. I loved seeing how a baby wipe just “melted” the oil pastels into beautiful colors. Now I may have to try this!

    What size pen is the black one you wrote the words Reshape Me with?

    1. It was a brush pen by Micron.
