 Exercise 1 :: making marks :: home-made pastel

I decided to make pastels based on a recipe using beeswax. It was fun to make but it represents too much work for the result although I really like the colour and it feels great to make my own pastels. I gave it a try and this is the result. The pastel itself is soft and mushy.
