These fade resistant soft pastels are best used on a slightly textured pastel paper or card, where the textures can be visible and the pastel composition has some ‘tooth’ to grip onto. This comprehensive colour range works well for any drawing subject including landscape, portrait, still life and life drawings. The square shape ensures they will not roll off the work surface, and allows for a sharp edge to be produced for detailed work. Soft pastels work well when added to charcoal and pencil drawings to add an extra colour burst, accent or texture. Each stick size: 6.6(L) x 1(W)cm.Highly pigmented soft pastel sticks in a range of 48 colours, designed for artists and students. Mungyo soft pastels deliver smooth consistent colour and can be used in drawing techniques such as blending and layering, crosshatching, flat edge, stenciling and stippling. The soft consistency of the sticks allow colours to be blended or layered on the surface easily, creating texture and tonal variations. Students can use a brush, finger or pencil stump to blend pastel colours with each other, and (if necessary) seal with a workable fixative spray. Fixative allows for the possibility of layers or rework with pastels over existing drawings, without shifting the colours underneath, or as the final sealant of the pigment.
