Daler-rowney artists' soft pastels combine the finest available pigments with other ingredients to give the smoothest and most consistent drawing experience through a carefully balanced range of tints. Finest quality pigments. Excellent lightfastness. Smooth and consistent. Minimal tendency to crumble and dust. A soft and creamy mark.
With generations of experience in the art of making pastels, daler-rowney have perfected the balance of the finest quality pigments, chalk and china clay to produce almost 200 colour tints and a comprehensive range of pastels. The softness of each pastel produces graduated velvet tones of unsurpassed richness and hue. Daler-rowney artists’ soft pastels now have the softest, creamiest mark, providing the most consistent coverage. An unsurpassed lightfastness.
All colours come in tints of 1-4 (4 being the deepest), with each vibrant colour derived from the precise blending of finest-quality pigments. Each colour has the same pigment combination, which is then mixed with superior quality chalk and china clay to produce the different tints.
All colours are non-hazardous, with minimal tendency to crumble and dust. The lightfastness of the range is unsurpassed. Daler-rowney artists' soft pastels are ideal for all kinds of drawing and painting as well as quick colour sketches in preparatory work.
