How do I achieve this turquoise rubbing technique? It seems quite evenly spread. Could it be an oil pastel?

Perhaps one can achieve this effect by placing dabs of paint on blotting paper, letting the paper absorb some of the oil. This makes the paint dry. Then one can paint with this and it wont penetrate the canvas thoroughly. Then one could let it dry for a while and scrape it off. I suppose this will be the effect(?).
