10% Off Blue Earth Sets

The pastels are very soft and have a rectangle shape allowing work to be completed with an edge or as you would with a round pastel. The pastels are shorter than the traditional round pastels but are chunkier and have excellent covering power. The sets come in an innovative foam pallet which allows you to peel back a layer of foam to expose the pastels for working.

15% Off Rembrandt Set of 90 Half Sticks

Rembrandt pastels are towards the harder end of the scale in terms of softness. This allows many techniques and effects to be implemented which are a lot harder with the very soft pastels. They have very good lightfastness and are free of pigments based on lead, cadmium and cobalt.

The Sennelier oil pastels were developed during 1949 in collaboration with Pablo Picasso who wanted a medium that could be used on a wide variety of surfaces without fading or cracking. The pastels have an exceptionally high pigment load which provides high colouring and coverage with exceptional brightness. They are very creamy and supple in use and are able to be blended and layered with ease.
