Since 1890, Sennelier have supplied the worlds’s largest range of soft pastels. These are all hand-made and come in the basic range of 525 colours. All pastels are naturally air-dried and carry the stringent US non-toxic label for health and safety.
Sennelier uses only the purest pigments, mixed with minimal amounts of natural binders, in an exclusive formula that yields lightfast, water-soluble pastels. There is just enough binder to hold the pigment together as the pastels are formed by hand, placed in special molds, and allowed to air dry. No fillers or clays are used.
These pastels measure 10mm in diameter and 70mm long
