Pastel on Canvas - Textured Surface for Pastel Drawings

Pastel on Canvas

To obtain a true pastel effect, it's especially important to choose a right surface. Generally, pastel artists use a textured paper. With the AKVIS Pastel program you can put your painting to any surface: sanded paper, MDF board, brick wall, and others.

In the Decoration group switch to the Canvas tab to choose and adjust a texture for your artwork. Enable the Use Canvas check-box.

Hint: You can drag the Canvas/Frame/Text tabs to change the order of the application of the decoration effects.
