Sennelier Soft Pastels are one of the world's largest chromatic pastel ranges and consist of high quality pure pigment finely grounded with a natural binder. The high quality composition of “à l’écu” pastels is the result of a perfect balance between binder and pigment. For gradient shades, increasing amounts of mineral fines are added, ultimately tending towards white. The exceptional brightness is the result of the pigment and of the natural mineral fines discovered by Sennelier in 1905 and that have been used ever since.
The manufacturing process of the Sennelier cylindrical pastel does not compress the paste and the pastel dries naturally in open air. The life span of a piece of work is guaranteed by the quality of the pastel, but also by the quality of the substrate. If a lot of overlapping is performed, it is preferable to fix between layers. Avoid, however, fixing the final layer too heavily, as the original tones will be lost.
This full range pastel collection makes a wonderful art gift for any professional pastel artist, or is an economical way to build a professional pastel studio for yourself. The Sennelier Full Box Set is truly a value.
