Help with Soft Pastels

So I bought a set of soft pastels today and Im attempting to use them. I am working on proper pastel paper and when I get a couple of layers of pastel on it I can still see little white grooves of the paper coming through. Do I have to press harder? Do more layers?... Any technique help would also be helpful!

"cough" "cough" Kayty (or anyone really) you got any beginners advice?

Any help will be great :)

PM Kayty. She's on Aussie time, too.
Can't wait to see what you'll come up with. I , personally, have NO experience with them, so no advice from me.


I have a few new sketches up, though)
