Sennelier Soft Pastels are water soluble and have an unparalleled pigment intensity. Even a gentle stroke delivers a solid, powerful line of brilliant color. Sennelier Soft Pastels are composed of high quality pure pigment grounded with a natural transparent binder. It took over three years, at the turn of the 20th Century, to formulate the Sennelier range of Extra Soft Pastels “à l’écu” and thus to create one of the largest chromatic range of pastels. Throughout the century, this range of tones has evolved, but the heart of its making remains unchanged.
The high quality composition of “à l’écu” pastels is the result of a perfect balance between binder and pigment. For gradient shades, increasing amounts of mineral fines are added, ultimately tending towards white. The exceptional brightness is the result of the pigment and of the natural mineral fines discovered by Sennelier in 1905 and that have been used ever since.
