The softness of dry pastel and its countless effects – blurred, powdery, blended or flat-wash – reflect the highly exclusive world of pastel painters. Pastels adhere best to a grainy textured surface. Extra-fine, highly concentrated pigments offer wonderful luminosity and excellent covering power along with exceptional lightfastness.
