French craftsmen have been producing these fine pastels since 1780, making Girault one of the oldest handmade soft pastel brands in the world. As a result Girault offers an experienced and time-tested product, which has proven itself to be of superior quality throughout the centuries. The Girault pastel has a slightly firmer consistency than the softest pastels, yet are very smooth and dense when applied to paper. They are creamy without being overly soft. Girault pastels work great for both covering large areas and for delicate detail work – particularly good for linear or edge work. The selection of greys and neutrals is outstanding. Girault is great for plein air work - the size and consistency of the stick allows you to pack a lot into a small space.
The specially selected Liz Haywood-Sullivan, Elizabeth Mowry and Richard McKinley sets are particularly popular!
Girault continues to add new sets and add colors to expand their beautiful range of pastels. In 2022 the line increased to 350 colors (adding more tints into existing color families). The fifty new colors are available for a limited time in the 50 Harmony Set. The Full Set is now 350 colors (seven cardboard boxes with 50 colors in each).
We have also added the Wood Box 300 (formerly the full range) - packaged in a beautiful, highly functional wood box!
