Oil Pastel (shown above) – This month’s download was created with an oil pastel. This medium is a soft crayon-like stick that can be used as a drawing device. Oil pastels are made up of non-drying oil and wax binder. This medium creates a beautiful powder texture that adds a hand-drawn detail to your custom stationery artwork. Oil pastels are great for creating patterns.

Watercolor (shown above) – Watercolor is a painting method where the paint is suspended in a water-based solution. Watercolor creates a very translucent look. Watercolor has become wildly popular for wedding invitation designs over the last few years. Watercolor is often used for custom illustrations — foliage, florals, borders, textures, etc.

Gouache (shown above) – Gouache is an opaque watercolor medium. This medium is very similar to watercolor, but slightly different. While watercolor shows through to the paper stock, gouache offers a more opaque look. Gouache is also often used for custom illustrations — foliage, florals, borders, textures, etc.

Are you interested in incorporating one of these mediums into your wedding stationery? Contact us! We’d love to hear your thoughts and get a custom quote started for you.

We’ll be sharing more tips/advice over the coming months (including more unique design mediums).
