Sennelier Pastels rank 4th out of 21 in our softness comparison. Comparing Pastel Hardness (PDF)
The original purity of the pigments, whose smoothness varies according to their individual chemical composition, can sometimes result in variations in softness. By not altering this characteristic with fillers or chalks, Sennelier insures that the pastel keeps its special brilliance and intensity. The extensive color range provides the broadest selection of dark hues (their most popular colors are the darkest blues and black greens) and tones. The bright reds and yellows are especially intense. The Sennelier Half Stick sets are a great value and offer a variety of different size sets. Half stick pastels do not have a label and are a slightly larger diameter than the standard stick.
120 PARIS COLLECTION has a tremendous selection of colors and is very compact - making it an excellent plein air set and a great introduction to the pastel medium - one of our Best Selling sets!
