What kind do you guys buy? I bought oils pastels and they are not the correct thing I fear. I cant get them ground up enough.

Thanks in advance!

Edna the chalk at Michaels didnt say it was non toxic that is why I went with the oils they said non toxic.

Ok I will look harder.

BTW Edna I was watching your gumpaste rose tutorial today, it is awesome!

You need chalk pastels not regular chalk. The colour is more intense in the pastels. To soften them add a bit of corn starch.

Thanks everyone... I will look again. My daughter is happy she gets the oils pastels she loves to draw

I am just now getting into making gumpaste flowers and was curious about what type of chalk to use for dusting. Am I understanding this correctly? Can I use any type of arts & crafts chalk as long as it's non-toxic?

Yes, as long as is non toxic is ok.
