The Making of Mount Vision Pastels

Karl Kelly started Mount Vision Pastels in 2000. Named for the New York town in which the company began, the idea to make a line of pastels was sparked by a fascination with color and a desire to create a firm and durable pastel that still maintained a soft and buttery texture. The size, price and performance of these pastels make them an excellent value! Mount Vision soft pastels are hand made using the finest traditional and synthetic pigments combined with a base of chalk, talc and clay to produce a pastel with a wonderful buttery feel, yet durable and strong.

THUNDERSTORM GREY - a great selection for painting dramatic skies - most popular Mount Vision set.
CHROMATIC - has high-key colors, like having a color wheel in a box.
IRIDESCENT SETS - 15 piece Iridescent colors and a 5 piece Dark Iridescent. (Iridescent colors not included in 439 Full Set).
BIOLCHINI SETS - Master Pastelist Greg Biolchini, P.S.A. chose the colors for the 50 Workshop set. It is an all-purpose set containing colors that mix well, with the selection weighted toward darker colors. The 25 Basic, Portrait and Landscape Add-on sets allow you to expand Workshop 50 set with no color duplication.
