Soft pastels are reminiscent of coloured charcoal. When rubbed the fine pigment particles blend to produce a secondary colour on the paper sheet.
Often used on roughly-textured paper with some cotton content, which retains the coloured dust and makes it easier to blend it without ripping through the sheet.
Soft pastels and pastel pencils are available at our Slanchogled Sofia and Varna art stores in a wide and precise range of 72 colours.
Popular among portrait and landscape artists.
This Derwent Pastel Pencil Tin brings you all the brilliant colour of high-quality traditional pastels but none of the mess.
The soft, powdery texture of Derwent Pastel Pencils produces a velvety-smooth finish that you can easily mix and blend.
You can use them whenever you’d use traditional pastels, but they’re particularly good for fine, detailed work.
The pencil form means that they’re easy to control and won’t smudge unless you want them to.
